HSBC Securities Services operates in more than 50 countries and has a sub-proprietary network in 40 markets. Our services include the processing and settlement of cross-border securities trades, safe-keeping of financial assets and the servicing of the associated portfolios. The wide range of assets held for corporate clients include exchange-traded funds, equities, government and corporate bonds, debt instruments, mutual fund investments, warrants and physical certificates.
Institutional investors are increasingly expected to participate actively in corporate governance, typically through proxy voting. HSBC is able to assist clients with notification of meetings and ballots. Votes are relayed to the registrar, central securities, depositary or sub-custodian.
We supply reports on your investments in any base currency. The reports include information on securities and cash transactions, trade status reports, tax certificates, and statements of cash and holdings. Accessible online, the reports can be viewed in real-time on HSBCnet or by SWIFT messaging.
