HSBC Germany achieves stable earnings

In 2022, HSBC Germany continued to build on the good results of the previous years. According to the preliminary annual financial statements, revenues amounted to €892m, thus reaching the level of the record year 2021, where the bank achieved a total of €900m in revenues. HSBC Germany has again profited from its broad scope of operations, with a strong new securities business and an attractive interest business. Credit risk provisions rose from €7m to €47m.

Pre-tax profit adjusted primarily for the costs of the ongoing transformation program totalled €196m, following the record result of €275m in the previous year. Extraordinary expenses included, a profit before taxation of €17m was recorded.

“We have managed to build on the excellent results of the last two years. This reflects our diversified business model, through which we were able to play to our strengths despite quickly changing framework conditions”, says Nicolo Salsano, Chairman of the Management Board of HSBC Germany. “Our transformation program, through which HSBC Germany will become a fully integrated part of the continental Europe unit, is progressing well. In this new setup, our customers will have access to an even broader range of products and services.

In a year-on-year comparison, the total assets of HSBC Germany went up from €31,5bn to €37,7bn. The tier 1 capital ratio increased to a comfortable 18,9 percent (end of 2021: 14,7 percent), while the equity ratio climbed to 21,7 percent (end of 2021: 16,9 percent). The adjusted result corresponds to a pre-tax return on equity of almost 8 percent.
