HSBC Acquires 100% of HSBC Life China

David Liao, Co-CEO, Asia-Pacific at HSBC:

“Growing our insurance business is key to delivering on our strategic priority of being a leading wealth manager in Asia. Full ownership of HSBC Life China brings us closer to this goal, and shows our commitment to expanding our broader wealth offering in mainland China.”


Greg Hingston, CEO designate, HSBC Global Insurance and Partnerships:

“With full ownership, we will have greater flexibility in accelerating our growth plans. In tandem with HSBC Pinnacle, our digital and mobile wealth planning and insurance platform, we will be able to significantly expand our capabilities to serve the growing wealth and insurance needs of our customers in China, particularly in the Greater Bay Area.”


HSBC in Mainland China

In addition to taking full ownership of HSBC Life China, HSBC continues to invest in its insurance business in mainland China, including in Pinnacle. Through Pinnacle, HSBC has already launched a new personal financial planning business in July 2020, to provide Chinese clients with a differentiated, needs-based financial planning proposition. Nearly 700 digitally-enabled wealth planners are already onboard in Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shenzhen, and HSBC aims to recruit up to 3,000 wealth planners in total by 2025.

In February 2020, HSBC combined its retail banking and wealth management, asset management, insurance and private banking businesses to create Wealth and Personal Banking (WPB) which serves over 39 million customers globally. HSBC’s ambition is to be Asia’s leading wealth manager by 2025, opening up a world of opportunities for Asian, international and HSBC-connected clients, wherever their wealth is created, invested and managed. Asia generates around half of HSBC’s US$1.6trn global wealth balances and nearly 65% of the Group’s wealth revenues. HSBC’s insurance business globally contributed to around a third of overall WPB profits and 12% of Group profits in H1 2021.
