About HSBC #
HSBC is a multinational banking and financial services company. It was founded in 1865 in Hong Kong, when the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation was established to finance trade between Europe and Asia. The company expanded rapidly and by the early 1900s, it had branches in Shanghai, London, and New York. In the 1990s, HSBC made a number of acquisitions, including the Midland Bank in the UK and the Republic National Bank of New York. These acquisitions helped HSBC to expand its presence in Europe and the United States, and the company became one of the world’s largest banks. Today, HSBC has operations in more than 64 countries and territories, and serves millions of customers around the world. The company offers a range of banking and financial services, including retail and commercial banking, wealth management, and investment banking.
