Our footprint in ASEAN

HSBC's footprint in ASEAN for the past 150 years

We have played an active role in the development of the Southeast Asia economies and infrastructures for almost 150 years, having first established a presence in Vietnam back in 1870. Since then, we have continually broken new ground, from issuing the first public overseas loan to the government of Thailand in 1905, to helping finance new trade commodities such as rubber and tin in the 1920s and launching the first computerised accounting system and automatic cash dispenser in Singapore in the 1970s. And now with the establishment of the AEC, we remain dedicated to the ongoing economic development of the ASEAN nations.

Our recent accolades

Over the years, we have been honoured with a host of awards and accolades from some of the world’s leading publications. We can help your business harness the power of this fast growing region with our award-winning cash, treasury, risk and liquidity solutions.
