HSBC is one of the largest banking and financial services organisations in the world. Its international network comprises some 8,000 offices in 88 countries and territories in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, North America and Latin America.
HSBC’s Middle East Advantage
HSBC's focus on emerging markets is a key element of the group’s strategy. The Middle East remains central to this strategy, underlined by the banks investment and history in the region. With a heritage of over 60 years in the region, HSBC is perfectly positioned to play a leading role in the rapid development of the region and connect its clients to the world. Traditionally, the Gulf region has played a critical role as a hub for intra-regional and international trade, acting as a gateway to the region for many global businesses looking to access attractive Middle Eastern markets.
Kuwait offers a number of attractive advantages. Its economy is diversifying into non-oil sectors in line with its development plan for 2010 – 14, and the government has pledged to spend US $104bn during this period to drive economic growth, which has been projected at 4.3% in 2011. As the country looks to increase the role of the private sector and position the country as a regional trade and finance centre, there are significant opportunities for UK companies to establish a presence in this hugely promising Gulf state. HSBC originally established a presence in the country in 1942, returning in 2005 to service the needs of both Kuwaiti and international companies looking for an international banking partner in the country.
HSBC is a leading provider of trade finance in Kuwait, and has an unrivalled offering across the Middle East. It offers wide range of trade related services and are well qualified to provide investment and trading advice to international companies developing their business in the region.
HSBC also provides a full suite of global banking and corporate banking services, including working capital, term finance, import and export facilities, project finance, and corporate internet banking services.
