There are hundreds of thousands of traditional commercial banking clients at HSBC in Hong Kong. These accounts were opened with HSBC since the 1970's due to their business presence in HK and other countries. The advantage of having a bank account with HSBC is that the money transfer is easy, quick and reliable.
According to some financial research reports regarding HSBC’s commercial banking business, nowadays quite a number of corporate accounts are actually family-owned accounts and are no longer doing business-related trading transactions actively. Those accounts in general are managed by the 2nd or 3rd generation of the family members and mainly for wealth management and investment purpose.
However, there are some accounts trading actively in the capital market such as equity stocks and ETFs. Some are strategically more conservative than others and only trading fixed income products such as government bonds. So, how do you know if your client needs a relationship manager? Can we know your customers better before asking your sales staff to approach a potentially underserved client?
