HSBC and corporate governance

HSBC goes beyond the minimum standards of corporate governance required by regulation to conduct our business. We comply not only with the letter but also spirit of all laws wherever we operate. 

We are committed to fair and ethical lending practices, high standards of accountability, timely and accurate disclosure of information and equitable treatment of our shareholders.

We value long-term and ethical client relationships, and adhere to stringent internal and external codes of conduct to ensure a balance between achieving business growth and meeting the expectations of our customers and society as a whole.

HSBC also talks to central banks and regulatory authorities to ensure that interests of our customers and other stakeholders are protected and maximised.
