HSBC-BankYou may think HSBC is a new bank in California – well you couldn’t be any further from the truth. The first HSBC office opened in San Francisco in 1865 and has been present ever since. In a time when banks are shrinking or closing, HSBC is growing, expanding and gaining customers and deposits. Premier Banking has doubled in size and deposits have quadrupled in last three years.

HSBC is the first global bank to establish a presence in San Diego. HSBC is the largest bank in the world, the fifth largest bank in Mexico and now 40 branches in California including San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. In San Diego, there are branches in downtown San Diego, Chula Vista, San Ysidro and soon in Del Mar. When travelling internationally, branches can be found in 88 countries on every continent except Antarctica including 1,400 branches in Mexico alone.

This global presence allows for services other banks cannot begin to offer. Whether living here or visiting from other countries, HSBC can offer mortgages, home loans, car loans and credit cards. Banking assistance is offered in multiple languages; not only in English and Spanish but in Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Japanese, Tagalog and Vietnamese. One of the most useful services is the ability to open and operate bank accounts in multiple countries, manage the accounts online simultaneously and transfer between them instantly using the best Exchange rate available. Your money can cross borders, oceans and time zones instantly.

HSBC is not only committed to its clients, it is committed to the community. The branches are carbon neutral, use paper as little as possible and LEED Certified in a streamlined, modern, and clean environment. The bank is a local supporter of MANA of San Diego, Sweetwater High School Foundation Scholarships and Ocean’s Discovery Educational Programs.

HSBC is not only the world’s local bank; it is San Diego’s local bank.
