Our strategy

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.

After a period of significant transformation for the bank, in June 2018 we outlined plans to refocus on growth. We aim to increase customer numbers, take market share, and grow revenue and profits on a consistent basis. We will do this while taking action to improve our competitiveness in the future, including by investing in technology.
