HSBC would be a real alphabet soup if the company's name reflected its geographic diversity. The international bank is one of the world's largest banking groups and the largest in Europe by assets under management (at around $2.6 trillion). Alongside its home markets of Hong Kong and the UK, HSBC has subsidiaries throughout Europe, the wider Asia/Pacific region, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. All told, the company serves about 40 million customers in more than 65 countries. Its activities include consumer and commercial banking, credit cards, private banking, investment banking, and leasing. HSBC was founded by the Scot Sir Thomas Sutherland in Hong Kong, then a British colony, in 1865 as was incorporated in the UK in 1991.
