HONG KONG (Reuters) - HSBC Holdings Plc
The bank will offer private banking services to Australian clients, including high net worth individuals (HNWIs) and family offices, with investable assets of more than A$10 million ($7.47 million), it said.
Australia has the third-largest population of HNWIs in Asia Pacific with around 29,500 Australian households that have a net worth of over A$10 million, HSBC said in a statement, citing external research reports.
"Australia is a priority growth market for HSBC, and having a private bank office here will complement and enhance our existing retail, commercial and investment banking businesses," said Tony Cripps, chief executive of HSBC in Australia.
