HSBS is a British banking and commercial service company. The headquarters are in the United Kingdom. The fifth-largest bank globally, basing on its total assets; assets are worth US$2.67 trillion. Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Cooperation Limited established HSBC in 1991 in London, as a group holding company. The origin of HSBC is Hongkong and a lesser extent in Shanghai where first branches got established.

HSBC initials stand for Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. The corporation was incorporated in 1866 and has since considered its primary markets to be Hong Kong and the UK. HSBC’ s presence is felt globally; Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe, North and South America. The bank operates in 80 countries with a total of 6,600 offices and approximately 60 million customers. It was ranked the world's s sixth-largest public company by Forbes magazine in 2014. The services that HSBC offers to its clients grouped into four: Investment banking, commercial banking, global private banking, and retail banking (Roberts & Kynaston, 2015, p. 77). The bank has listings in two stock exchange countries; thatareHong Kong and London Stock Exchange.

Also, HSBC is an integral of the FTSE 100 and Hang Seng Index. By July 2012, the bank ruled a market share worth £ 102.7billion, the second largest company in the stock exchange listing after Royal Dutch Shell. The bank has secondarily listed on Euronext Paris, New York, and Bermuda stock exchange (Fit sell& Williams, 2007, p. 52). At HSBC investment banking is driving income. HSBC is a High Street bank in any case, and lots of wage from exchanging and venture keeping money contributes to its top line income.

It hides a great deal on the cost side of the business and hampers the capacity to manage a percentage of the operational issues they have. Going ahead e HSBC needs to achieve this crisscross between top-line development from investment and expense from the operational business.
