HSBC is one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organisations

We serve more than 39 million customers through four global businesses:

Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Commercial Banking, Global Banking and Markets, Global Private Banking.

Our network covers 66 countries and territories.

We aim to be where the growth is, connecting customers to opportunities, enabling businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, and ultimately helping people to fulfil their hopes and dreams and realise their ambitions

HSBC is one of the world’s leading international banks, with exceptional access to high-growth markets and a strong balance sheet. Our strategy builds on these advantages and positions us to capitalise on long-term trends affecting the financial services industry:

  • The world is expected to become more connected as international flows of trade, finance and data continue to grow
  • The global middle classes are set to expand further, led by Asia
  • Significant investment will be needed worldwide to support the transition to a low-carbon economy
  • More than 50 per cent of the Group’s client revenue is linked to international clients. Our access to high-growth, developing markets in Asia, the Middle East and Latin America gives us a platform for long-term growth. And our balance sheet strength continues to provide an excellent foundation for a sustained dividend.

Diversity is in our roots.

HSBC was founded more than 150 years ago to finance trade between Europe and Asia. We continue to bring different peoples and cultures together today.

We believe diversity brings benefits for our customers, our business and our people. Different ideas and perspectives help us innovate, manage risk and grow the business in a sustainable way

We want a connected workforce that reflects the communities where we operate and helps us meet the needs of customers from all walks of life

We want HSBC to be a place where people are valued, respected and supported to achieve their potential – and we foster an environment where people can speak up

Our employees lead seven global employee networks which play a crucial role in helping us achieve our diversity and inclusion ambitions. These groups focus on gender, age, ethnicity, LGBT+, faith, working parents and carers, and ability

At HSBC we put great emphasis on our values

Our values define who we are as an organisation and what makes us distinctive. We are:

  • Dependable - We are dependable, stand firm for what is right and delivering on our commitments
  • Open - We are open to different ideas and cultures, and value diverse perspectives
  • Connected - We are connected to our customers, communities, regulators and each other, caring about individuals and their progress

These values reflect the best aspects of our 150-year heritage. They are vital to fulfilling our purpose of helping businesses to thrive, economies to prosper and ultimately helping people to fulfil their hopes and realise their ambitions.

Since its foundation in 1865, HSBC has adapted to and helped serve the needs of a changing world. It has financed economic growth, fostered international trade and overcome events such as economic crises. We recognise our wider commitments to the communities in which we operate and understand that economic growth must also be sustainable.

Supporting Sustainable Growth

Today our sustainability approach focuses on three main areas: sustainable finance, sustainable supply chains, and employability and financial capability.

Sustainable finance

HSBC aspires to be a leader in financing, managing and shaping the transition to a low-carbon world. We have set out a series of commitments in support of this goal, including a pledge to provide USD100 billion of sustainable financing and investment by 2025. We also aim to source 100 per cent of our electricity from renewable sources by 2030

Sustainable supply chainsThrough our partnerships with customers, non-governmental organisations and other key stakeholders, we are encouraging responsible business in global supply chains. We aim to help our customers reduce the environmental impact of their supply chains and to foster the sustainable growth of small and medium-sized businesses

Employment and financial capabilityIn a rapidly changing world, workplace skills and financial literacy are more important than ever. We support our customers, communities and employees to develop the financial capability and employability skills they need to thrive in the modern world
