Noel Quinn, HSBC Group Chief Executive: “We are pleased to agree the sale of HSBC Argentina. This transaction is another important step in the execution of our strategy and enables us to focus our resources on higher value opportunities across our international network.   HSBC Argentina is largely a domestically focused business, with limited connectivity to the rest of our international network. Furthermore, given its size, it also generates substantial earnings volatility for the Group when its results are translated into US dollars. Galicia is better placed to invest in and grow the business.  We remain committed to Mexico and the US, and to serving our international clients throughout our global network with our leading transaction banking capabilities.”

21st December 2023 – Royal Bank of Canada (TSX: RY) (NYSE: RY) (“RBC”) today welcomed the federal Minister of Finance’s approval to proceed with the acquisition of HSBC Bank Canada (“HSBC Canada”).  With this approval received, RBC and HSBC Canada will work together to facilitate a smooth transition to RBC for HSBC Canada’s clients and employees, who will receive further information in the coming days regarding what they can expect as both banks work towards completing the transaction.  The acquisition will strengthen RBC’s premium domestic business and position on the global stage.

RBC’s Commitments to Canadians – RBC today announced significant investments across Canada and particularly in British Columbia, where many HSBC Canada employees are located.

Growing Our Canadian Workforce

  • Over the next five years, RBC will build out a Global Banking Hub in Vancouver, representing the bank’s commitment to making Vancouver a leading city for financial services. The hub will be supported with over 1,000 jobs across multiple disciplines including those with technology skills in digital, data science, and cyber; client-facing, multilingual advisors; fraud experts; risk managers; and client credit adjudication experts.
  • RBC will increase its client operations and advice centre teams in Winnipeg, Manitoba, leading to the creation of 100 new jobs.

Meeting Community Needs

  • RBC will provide $7 billion in financing for the construction, retrofitting and renovation of affordable housing1 and sustainable housing in Canada, to be committed over five years. We believe this would translate into approximately 25,000 housing units. In addition, RBC will begin offering lending that assists homeowners in redeveloping single family residences into duplexes, triplexes, multiplexes and laneway homes by June 30, 2024.
  • RBC remains committed to donating 1 per cent of its Canadian net income before tax each year. The addition of HSBC Canada will allow us to increase our support of Canadians and their communities from coast to coast.
  • RBC will commit $5 million over five years to support Manitoba’s agricultural and agri-processing sector, contributing to innovation and security in Canada’s food supply. This builds on RBC’s commitment as a founding member of the Canadian Alliance for Net-Zero Agri-food (CANZA).

Ensuring a smooth transition for clients and employees

  • RBC is looking forward to welcoming all employees from HSBC Canada, enabling their client-facing advisors to continue to serve their existing clients and deliver exceptional advice and service, and showcasing the opportunities available at RBC. To allow RBC and incoming HSBC Bank Canada employees an opportunity to work together, understand talent and skills, and to explore roles within RBC’s organization, RBC will provide continued employment for HSBC Bank Canada employees2 for a minimum period of six months after the transaction closes.
  • RBC remains committed to ensuring clients get significant value, exceptional service and competitive rates.
  • HSBC Canada clients will have access to the largest network of branches and ATMs in Canada, giving them exceptional convenience in their everyday banking.
  • HSBC Canada clients will have a dedicated toll-free number to call should they have questions about their transition to RBC. RBC will also maintain in-branch service in Cantonese and Mandarin as well as offer Cantonese and Mandarin service in our Advice Centre and through telephone banking.

HSBC Sells Canada Banking Operations to Royal Bank of Canada for $10.1 Billion

HSBC London Headquarter Riverview

HSBC – We’ve agreed to sell our banking operations in Canada to Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) – one of the largest banks in the country.  The deal is worth CA$13.5bn (US$10.1bn) and is expected to be completed in late 2023, subject to regulatory and governmental approvals.  As a result of the deal:

  • HSBC Group will generate an estimated pre-tax gain of c.US$5.7bn
  • Our common equity tier 1 ratio is expected to get a boost of c.130 basis points over and above existing capital plans
  • The HSBC Board will consider opportunities for organic growth and investment and how much of the proceeds should be used for a one-off dividend and/or share buybacks (in addition to any existing share buyback programme)

We continue to target a return on average tangible equity of at least 12% from 2023, excluding the gain on this transaction. We remain committed to this target after completion of the sale.

 

Noel Quinn, HSBC Group Chief Executive: “HSBC Canada is a high performing and profitable bank, with strong leadership and exceptional people. I am grateful to the whole team for their hard work in supporting our clients over many years.  The deal makes strategic sense for both parties, and RBC will take the business to the next level. We look forward to working closely with RBC’s leadership team to ensure a smooth transition for our clients and colleagues.  Our Group strategy is unchanged, and closing this transaction will free up additional capital to invest in growing our core businesses and to return to shareholders.”

 

Strategic review

The sale agreement follows a strategic review of HSBC Canada, which is among Canada’s premier international banks with more than 130 branches and over 780,000 retail and commercial customers.  The review took into account:

  • Our relatively low market share in Canada
  • Our ability to invest in HSBC Canada’s expansion and growth in the context of opportunities in other markets
  • Strong expected interest from other banks in purchasing a successful business

It’s business as usual for HSBC in Canada until the transaction completes.

Linda Seymour, HSBC Canada CEO:  “Thank you to our valued clients in Canada who have trusted us to fulfil their ambitions in both good and challenging times for over 40 years.  It’s our privilege to work with you and we look forward to serving you through the transition and beyond.”
