In recent years, the bank has been investing heavily in digital transformation and has launched a number of new initiatives to improve its digital banking services and customer experience. HSBC’s future plans include:

Continuing to invest in digital transformation initiatives, such as its Open Banking API and mobile banking services.

Expanding its global footprint and growing its customer base, particularly in emerging markets.

Focusing on sustainable finance and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing, as part of its broader commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility.

Restructuring its corporate and business operations to improve efficiency and profitability, including a recent decision to shift its focus to Asia and other high-growth markets.

HSBC operates as a global organization with a complex corporate structure that includes a holding company in the UK and numerous subsidiaries and branches around the world. The bank is organized into four business segments: Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Commercial Banking, Global Banking and Markets, and Global Private Banking.
