New Centre for Cities’ research in partnership with HSBC UK reveals that Britain’s jobs crisis is bigger than realised, as the economy will need to create almost ten million new private sector jobs just to reverse the damage done by the pandemic.
As one of the world’s largest banks, HSBC supports over 1 million businesses in the UK and more than 37 million customers worldwide. This year, we won ‘Best Business Banking Provider’ at the British Bank Awards 2018.
We are committed to working with UK SMEs to help them realise their ambitions and over the past three years have committed £34bn in lending to enterprises in this sector.
Our international network gives us access to around 90% of world trade flows, so we are uniquely positioned to support the ambitions of internationally-minded businesses.
We aim to partner with businesses, rather than just provide products. To that end, we offer guidance through a range of channels, including our regional Strategies for Growth events, our HSBC Knowledge Centre and our Financial Wellbeing programme.
