Growth

Expand your business, locally and globally. Whether your growth strategy is to build on what you have or expand your business reach globally – or both – HSBC could have the right solution. Inject capital into your supply chain or establish working relationships with new partners in new markets quickly, easily and confidently using our cross-border funding and trade and receivables finance services.

Investments

Preserve capital and maintain liquidity. To support and grow your business, you need to make the most of excess balances. This involves not simply knowing where cash is, but also having the right tools to access and use funds in the most effective way possible. That’s why our savings, equity and investment solutions are designed to help you consolidate balances for faster, easier access to capital when it’s needed – helping you put idle funds to work growing liquidity and protecting your business.

Credit and Lending

Get access to a range of long and short-term loans designed to meet the specific funding requirements of your business. Use our lending and credit solutions to finance capital investments and business growth, and obtain working capital to improve your cash flow, or manage day-to-day expenses more effectively. Our specialists have a wealth of experience customising lending programmes to suit the requirements of all types and sizes of organisations.

Forfaiting

Protect and finance your post shipment trade with forfaiting services that finance while managing risk.

Commodity and Structured Trade Finance

Leverage the strength of our specialised lending business for tailored trade finance solutions designed specifically for businesses that produce, trade and purchase commodities including energy, metals and agriculture. Our commodity and structured trade finance team understands that every player along the global supply chain – from production to transformation to marketing – has specific financing requirements. With product specialists located across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, we are able to provide traditional and structured trade financing solutions in both emerging and developed markets.

Exports

Gain more control over exports, improve cashflow and manage risks associated with international trade more effectively using HSBC’s export finance facilities. With a significant presence in local markets around the world, our trade specialists have the in-depth knowledge to help you assess emerging market risks and give you the confidence you need to expand your business internationally. This includes helping you understand the regulatory environment as well as unique cultural, social and economic conditions when exploring new markets.

Guarantees

Conduct business with confidence, even where you lack established relationships, through the use of guarantees and standby letters of credit. An HSBC guarantee could enable you to negotiate favourable terms with buyers and suppliers by protecting them from non-performance under a contract while addressing your financing needs. HSBC offers tailored solutions including performance, advance payment, tender, warranty, financial guarantees and standby letters of credit as well as others upon request.

Imports

Access the working capital you need and improve cash flow by bridging the gap between settlement with suppliers and payment from buyers, putting you in the position to negotiate better prices. Our import finance solutions offer flexible financing options, fixed or variable repayments and a drawdown process on individual transactions to qualified importers. This is combined with our international trade expertise, which enables us to design a structure to suit your specific trading cycle.

Liquidity, Liability and Investments

Increase the efficiency of your operations by managing cash on a portfolio basis across more than 50 markets around the world. With HSBC’s global liquidity solutions you will have access to a range of self-funding, deposit and investment techniques. HSBC’s liquidity solutions will be tailored and restricted to be fully compliant with local market regulations that may limit or restrict the availability of some of the services described below. HSBC’s approach combines a high level of consistent service and information, which enables us to configure our services to integrate easily with your organisation’s existing ERP and treasury management systems, as well as your key processes such as payable and receivables.

Receivables Finance

Improve your cash flows and enhance forecasting. If qualified, access up to 90 per cent of invoice values as soon as they are issued. Receivables finance is available in most major currencies and as early as the next business day. You can release cash previously caught in the sales cycle to cover day-to-day expenses or pay suppliers faster thereby negotiating more favourable rates and terms. With the flexibility to access the entire amount available or draw down only what you need, receivables finance is also an effective strategy for self-funding growth.

Public Programme Loans

Interest subsidy of public programme loans makes financing environmental and energy efficiency projects highly attractive. The same applies to the funding of market-oriented research and development. Make use of our tailor-made financing solutions.
