Asia Risk

HSBC has won two awards in this year's Asia Risk Awards 2007.

  • Islamic Products House of the Year

    In commenting on this award, Asia Risk said:

    "Islamic financing has developed from a niche business into a thriving global franchise. More dealers are coming in in the hope of tapping a market that participants estimate to be worth US$300 billion globally and growing by 15% a year. But while many banks have strengthened their teams in this area, only a handful demonstrate true innovation in products and techniques. The most impressive for Asia Risk this year was HSBC which wins the inaugural Islamic Products House of the Year award."
  • House of the Year, Hong Kong

    Asia Risk awarded HSBC its House of the Year, Hong Kong for the following reasons:

    "Despite increased competition from international banks in Hong Kong and the positive developments in China's banking industry in the past six years, HSBC remains the bank of choice for companies in the territory. Statistics released in March by US research company Greenwich Associates show that HSBC controls close to a quarter of foreign exchange business in Hong Kong and
    more than a third of the interest rate derivatives market with Hong Kong corporates."

Lloyd's List Asia

HSBC has won this year's Financier of the Year award in the Lloyd's List Asia Awards 2007.

The award is given to "the financial institution, boutique or adviser that has made the most notable contribution to the maritime market."
