    HSBC Opening Times And Branch Locations

    Their branches can be found in many high streets and major town and city centres. They also have a wide-ranging network of standalone ATMs that provide customers with 24-hour access to funds and other services. Many UK residents can access a nearby branch and some people living in more-populated areas can walk or drive to more than one nearby HSBC establishment.

    It is relatively easy to identify one of their branches because they have a distinct logo that has become recognisable among the UK public. It simply reads the bank name in black text and next to the text is a white and red rectangle design originating from Hong Kong. In 2018, they switched the text from the left side of the design to the right side of the design. Some branch signs may not have adopted the switch as of yet.

    A Brief History

    HSBC was established in Hong Kong while it was under the British rule in 1865. The person responsible for its formation was a Scotsman by the name of Sir Thomas Sutherland. It emerged into the UK by taking over the Midland Bank in 1992. Since then, it has continued to expand within the UK and in other territories. It remains one of the biggest banks in the world, making extensive use of the banking network that had grown in Hong Kong before it was handed back to the Chinese at the end of the period of British rule.
