Cutty Sark

HSBC's partnership with the Cutty Sark brings together two iconic institutions of global trade with a very similar heritage.

Founded in 1865, HSBC has built a strong heritage in international trade. It produced the first banknotes in Thailand and Persia and financed many of the world’s major transport projects, including the first railways in China, ports in India and Japan, the Erie Canal in North America, and the Channel Tunnel connecting the UK with Europe.

Since first setting sail in 1870, Cutty Sark has been an emblem of Britain’s history as a pioneer of global trade. HSBC is proud to support the next phase of her voyage.

As Cutty Sark’s long-term partner, HSBC will help bring to life the ship’s colourful past to its customers, employees and local communities alike.
