HSBC Group

Key financial targets

  • Return on Tangible Equity > 11 per cent

  • Positive adjusted jaws

  • Sustained dividend

We are the world’s leading international bank, with unparalleled access to high-growth markets and a strong balance sheet that provides the foundation for a sustained dividend. Our international network – covering countries and territories that account for more than 90 per cent of global GDP, trade and capital flows – generates more than half of the HSBC Group’s client revenue.

Since 2011, we have pursued a two-part strategy: to develop our international network, and to invest in wealth and retail businesses with local scale. This strategy is working and has enabled us to capitalise on our competitive strengths.

The next phase of our strategy is to return to growth, improve returns, and enhance the service we provide to customers. In June 2018, Group Chief Executive John Flint set out a series of strategic priorities to help us achieve these aims. Read more about our Strategy Update 2018.

We provide regular updates on the performance of the Group, including our progress in delivering these. We also provide information on the Group, Fixed Income, our four global businesses, our presence in key geographies, and topics such as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues in the factbooks below.
