We have developed a long-term strategy that reflects our purpose and enables us to capture value from our international network:
Develop our international network
To facilitate international trade and capital flows and serve our clients, with potential to help them grow from small enterprises into large multinationals.
Invest in wealth and retail businesses with local scale
To make the most of global social mobility, wealth creation and long-term demographic changes in our priority markets.
This strategy positions us to capitalise on several long-term trends:
HSBC is one of the most international banking and financial services organisations in the world. Our network covers countries accounting for more than 90 per cent of global GDP, trade and capital flows. We have a leading presence in large and fast-growing economies, while our diversified, universal banking model offers a relatively low risk profile and volatility. We have a strong capital and funding base and offer stable shareholder returns.
Further information about HSBC’s strategy is available on our corporate website. Please note this is English language only.
Our ability to connect customers across the world remains central to the bank’s strategy todayStuart Gulliver, HSBC Group Chief Executive
