Our global reach and expertise help approximately 1.4 million business customers – from small businesses to multinationals – unlock their potential.

HSBC Commercial Banking operates in 53 countries and territories, covering the developed and developing markets that matter most to our customers. Through our teams of relationship managers we connect businesses to opportunities, helping them to thrive and grow.

We work with a wide range of customers, from small enterprises to mid-market companies and large multinationals, providing them with the tools they need to function efficiently. As a cornerstone of the HSBC Group we have the financial strength to support our customers with working capital, term loans and acquisition or project finance, and the expertise to help them raise money from the stock and bond markets.
