HSBC Private Bank champions women in business

Running your own business can take up all of your time, but as a successful entrepreneur or business partner, the benefits often make up for the impact on your work-life balance. Nevertheless, the rewards and challenges aren’t necessarily the same for men and women.

As a businesswoman, we know you may also need to cope with the extra roles of mother and wife too. What might be less clear is how your role in the business empire will pan out in the longer term and how these work alongside your family commitments. Will you assume the mantle of business head or pass on responsibilities while continuing to steer from behind the scenes?

Recognising the value of shared experiences, HSBC Private Bank recently celebrated the entrepreneurial achievements of successful businesswomen with a Women’s Forum in Singapore, featuring Banyan Tree co-founder Claire Chiang. This was followed by a Women in Business Breakfast at London’s Chelsea Flower Show at which Virginie Taittinger shared her experience of being the only woman in the world to launch a champagne brand, Virginie T. At the heart of these events are topics that focus specifically on the needs of our female clients including managing your business and protecting your family’s wealth.

“Women have got a fantastic place to play in banking and in business but it’s one we haven’t actually seen develop nearly enough,” believes Peter Boyles, CEO of HSBC Private Bank. It’s a situation we are committed to help change.
