Financial Regulation

There is an unparalleled level of regulatory reform taking place globally across financial services.


Following the global financial crisis a range of regulatory reforms were introduced with the aim of making global markets safer, more transparent and more efficient as well as restoring investor confidence in those markets. These reforms have seen new rules introduced on tax transparency, enhanced investor protection and increased transparency across markets.

HSBC is committed to supporting these regulatory reforms and raising awareness among our clients of what these mean in terms of the products and services we provide.

Please visit our dedicated webpages for further information on specific reforms.
