Regional head of credit advisory, Asia Pacific
HSBC Global Private Banking

Being recognised as the best private bank for credit advisory for the fourth consecutive year is a strong testament to our highly client-centric approach and market-leading capabilities.

To deliver a distinctive client experience, our credit advisory team employs a holistic approach to craft optimal solutions tailored to clients’ needs. Our advisors work closely with our relationship managers to understand our clients’ financial circumstances and analyse their current debt structures. This results in an efficient lending approach that is integrated into their long-term investment strategy, setting us apart from the competition.

What was behind the judges’ decision?

  • Despite challenging underlying market conditions – characterised by rising interest rates and margin calls – HSBC Global Private Banking was successful in maintaining the strength of its loan book, sustaining loan margins across Asia Pacific and increased its overall number of credit lines in Hong Kong and Singapore
  • HSBC Global Private Banking continued to improve its already market-leading credit and financing solutions suite during the review period. This included further penetration into innovative and bespoke areas of lending, such as financial sponsors, hedge funds and private equity stake monetisation, private shares financing, and trophy asset financing
  • The bank presented several compelling case studies to the judging panel of how the credit and financing business provides a direct source of net new assets. In one case, HSBC Global Private Banking provided US$400 million in single stock financing for a Forbes Rich List, new-to-bank client in Hong Kong that was already banked with several competitors

What we said

“For the fourth year running, Asian Private Banker is delighted to present HSBC Global Private Banking with the prize for Best Private Bank – Credit and Financing. That decision reflects the bank’s dedication and vision when it comes to the pursuit of excellence across a full range of credit-based offerings, from Lombard lending and real estate financing to single stock lending and private equity/hedge fund monetisation,” said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

“Amid a difficult interest rate and macro-economic backdrop, HSBC Global Private Banking used 2023 to refine its end-toend credit and financing offering, from pre-sales to after-sales, to client support and engagement activities. The success in maintaining its robust credit processes was demonstrated in HSBC Global Private Banking’s effectiveness in managing risk while maintaining margins and loan book strength and increasing overall credit lines.

Asian Private Banker would like to congratulate HSBC Global Private Banking on its latest victory in the category of Best Private Bank – Credit and Financing.”
