FRANKFURT (Reuters) - HSBC
"If we wants to continue to grow we needs more capital," Carola von Schmettow said in remarks set for release on Thursday. "I am not authorised to talk about volume, timing and so on - but I am very confident."
HSBC Trinkaus has grown its loans business with German corporates, including the country's prized medium-sized companies, by 30 percent since 2013, Schmettow said.
It is now targeting handing out fewer plain-vanilla loans and selling more profitable, complex products, she added.
