Commenting on the results, Lindsay Gordon, President and Chief Executive Officer, said:
“HSBC Bank Canada recorded satisfactory results in the third quarter with good growth in revenue and net income compared to previous periods. The strong Canadian economy and strategic investments in key businesses and markets drove growth. The recent volatility in international credit and liquidity markets has provided evidence that we need to continue to manage our businesses prudently.

“For the remainder of 2007 and into 2008, we plan to continue our existing strategy of enhancing sales through careful expansion in key target markets and improving operational efficiencies while maintaining close control over credit quality. We continue to work on global initiatives with the HSBC Group and recently, along with 34 other countries and territories, we launched HSBC Global Premier, a product that offers the world’s mass affluent the most comprehensive global banking and wealth management service in the market. Global Premier leverages HSBC’s presence in 83 markets to provide customers with seamless international service.”
