In May 2011, we set out a new strategy to investors, employees and other stakeholders with the aim of becoming the world’s leading international bank. One year on, we took stock of our progress and set our priorities for the year ahead.
Our strategy is based on two major trends: the continuing growth of international trade and capital flows; and wealth creation, particularly in faster-growing markets. We are capitalising on these trends, connecting customers to opportunities by building on our distinctive presence in the network of markets, capturing wealth creation in target markets and focusing on retail banking only where we can achieve profitable scale.
