The minimum deposit is 10% (5% if you take a Help to Buy deal), but the keenest rates are reserved for borrowers with the biggest deposits. Buy-to-let loans are also available, again with a choice of deals and deposits.
HSBC is one of the few truly international banks, with almost 60 million customers in 80 countries across the world, including Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and America.
It was founded in Hong Kong back in 1865, primarily to finance the growing trade between China and Europe – something as relevant today as it was 150 years ago.
It wasn’t until the late 1970s that HSBC began to push for expansion, moving into the UK in 1987 with a stake in Midland Bank, which set up first direct, the UK’s first telephone bank, in 1989. HSBC took full ownership of Midland Bank in 1992 and set up its HQ in London.
HSBC is now one of the world’s most recognised brands.
