A better view of emerging markets


20 Sep 2008

HSBC Global Banking and Markets is an emerging markets-led and financing-focused wholesale bank and our strategy means we are well positioned to support our clients as they explore investment opportunities in the emerging markets.

To illustrate the opportunities, HSBC Global Banking and Markets is publishing a series of special reports, focused on the emerging markets, the role that HSBC plays in them and key transactions we have advised our clients on: deals such as helping Ford sell Jaguar and Land Rover to Tata, and advising Borse Dubai in its landmark transactions with Nasdaq and OMX.

Each month we look at a different emerging market, from China to the Middle East, Vietnam and India. Stories in the series have included interviews with senior bankers and financial analysts, and features on commodities, shipping, Islamic finance and property.

Over the coming months our team of in-house emerging markets experts will publish new stories from Mexico, Brazil and Poland; offering a first-hand view of the opportunities available to investors in the emerging markets.
