HSBC stands for Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. The company traces its origins to Hong Kong and Shanghai, where the first branches were opened in the 18th century. The company was founded by a Scotsman, Thomas Sutherland, in Hong Kong which was then a British colony. A month later, an office in Shanghai was opened.

In 1980, the company acquired a U.S.-based bank, Marine Midland.

HSBC has four major businesses—investments, banking, loans, and insurance.


HSBC offers checking accounts, savings accounts, and certificates of deposits. It also has credit cards, debit cards, and overdraft protection.

HSBC checking accounts are divided into four types. Basic banking checking account is best suited for clients who write only a few checks every month. Choice checking has a monthly service fee of $15, with the fee waived if the monthly minimum balance is sustained.

The other checking account types are HSBC Advance and HSBC Premier which cater to high-earning clients.
