Public Sector

HSBC has a dedicated team responsible for the holistic coverage of Public Sector clients. The team is part of HSBC’s broader Institutional Client Group within Global Banking and Markets.

The global team helps governments, government agencies, policy banks, supranationals, sovereign wealth funds, and central banks and reserve managers access the full spectrum of banking services. The team, in partnership with dedicated product specialists, provides support across financing, capital markets and advisory, global markets and transaction banking. It has representatives in a number of countries including London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Paris.

A trusted partner to the Public Sector

HSBC works with Public Sector clients in more than 80 countries to support their budgetary spending needs, infrastructure financing and transaction banking requirements.

With offices in more than 60 countries worldwide, our on-the-ground experts help Public Sector clients gain access to HSBC’s global investor network.

Public Sector clients have trusted HSBC to advise governments on interventions in strategic sectors, finance large capital requirements and devise bespoke solutions to derive value from government support schemes. Alongside this, HSBC has supported large scale infrastructure financing and is supporting the transition to net zero.

Supporting Central Banks

HSBC has been at the forefront of major trends and challenges for Central Banks, offering a global proposition across developed and emerging markets with on-the-ground expertise in key economies. Our specialised and experienced coverage, market-leading research and customised solutions ensure HSBC is a trusted partner to our clients.

By focusing on understanding and listening to our clients’ needs, HSBC ensures that they are accurately delivered on. For example, the annual HSBC sponsored Reserve Management Trends Survey asks Central Banks key questions such as where they are investing, how they are searching for additional yield and what their key focuses are for socially responsible investing. These crucial insights dictate the products and solutions we offer to our clients.

Thanks to our Clients’ support HSBC has won a number of awards for our commitment to the sector, such as Central Banking’s 2019 and 2020 Global Markets Award, as well as the 2021 Climate Initiative Award (see Awards section for more details).
