HSBC Germany takes the next step towards a European platform

Today, HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt's assets and customers were moved to the newly created HSBC Continental Europe SA, Germany.

Also the employees are now formally part of the continental European entity. The business in Germany, Europe’s largest and most export-orientated economy, has thus been fully integrated into HSBC Continental Europe.

This branchification of HSBC Germany is part of HSBC’s strategy to become the leading international wholesale bank in Europe, complemented by a targeted wealth and personal banking business. “This is an important milestone in building a unified, simplified and strengthened bank in Europe to serve our customers more efficiently,” said Andrew Wild, CEO of HSBC Continental Europe.
