A global approach, for global businesses

The HSBC ISB team provides banking coverage to the subsidiaries of Commercial Banking clients, helping them to gain competitive advantage by utilising the power of our network. We are uniquely  structured to reflect our clients' global teams, enabling us to provide dedicated relationship managers at headquarter, regional and subsidiary levels. By partnering with clients in this way, we are able to provide a consistent, client-centric service across markets, tailored financial solutions and real-time insights through a central technology platform, enabling new business opportunities.

This ISB approach means that we are ideally positioned to provide clients with visibility and control over their global financial position and to optimise their finances. We deliver compelling benefits to both parent companies and their subsidiaries, helping facilitate their growth.

ISB Singapore has built out regional coverage in Singapore across:

  • Our relationship management model – A Regional Relationship Manager (RRM) for Regional Treasury / Financial Centres headquartered in Singapore
  • Client Origination - providing regional coverage for Capital Financing origination
  • Structured Banking - providing specialised debt solutions and cross border coverage across ASEAN

Singapore is a scale market and HSBC aspires to be a leading domestic and international bank here. With the benefit of our ASEAN network and heritage, we believe we are uniquely placed to help companies expand both in Singapore and across ASEAN.
