Our team in Ireland provides a range of financial solutions to ambitious businesses trading internationally. Our partnership approach offers bespoke solutions that can help take businesses further.

We are proud of our long history, tracing our origins to Hong Kong and Shanghai where we opened for business in 1865. Since then, HSBC has thrived, successfully adapting in times of political and economic turbulence and stability. We continuously assess how we can best serve our customers as they meet the challenges and opportunities of business.

Today, economic power is shifting from north and west to east and south. Economic analysts predict that by the middle of this century the collective size of economies currently labelled ‘emerging’ will have increased five-fold and surpassed those we now call ‘developed’.

HSBC is well placed to help businesses seize the opportunities presented by this trend. We have a strong capital base, deep expertise in banking and an unrivalled presence in all of the world’s major developed and emerging markets.

We aim to be recognised as the world’s leading international bank.
