Guarantees

Conduct business with confidence, even where you lack established relationships, through the use of guarantees and standby letters of credit. An HSBC guarantee could enable you to negotiate favourable terms with buyers and suppliers by protecting them from non-performance under a contract while addressing your financing needs. HSBC offers tailored solutions including performance, advance payment, tender, warranty, financial guarantees and standby letters of credit as well as others upon request.

Financial guarantees

Use our lease, customs and other financial guarantees as a substitute for cash deposits with your counterparties, freeing your working capital and potentially securing favourable contract terms.

Non-financial guarantees

Open up new tender opportunities with HSBC-issued tender bonds, negotiate better contract terms via our performance and warranty guarantees and secure up-front payments via our advance payment guarantees.

Standby letters of credit

In markets where your suppliers and buyers are less comfortable with guarantees, HSBC can support your business via both financial and non-financial standby letters of credit.

Managing trade risk

Globalisation has seen a huge increase in the number of small and medium sized businesses starting to trade internationally. While this is a worthwhile step in terms of profitability and diversification, it does involve taking on new risks. However, as Mark Hussain, Global Head of Commercial Insurance & Investments at HSBC explains, it is possible to mitigate these risks economically

Risk

Businesses of all sizes face a wide variety of risks every day. Some of these risks may be trivial, while others have the potential to close down the business. A key skill is therefore the ability to find a way of mitigating these critical risks. As Mark Hussain, Global Head of Commercial Insurance & Investments at HSBC explains, it may not be feasible to completely neutralise all these risks, but it is possible to devise a strategy that reduces them to a level acceptable to the individual business

Employee benefits and retention

The loss of key employees has an impact on any organisation, but the consequences can be particularly acute for small and mid-sized businesses. Apart from the costs of replacement, the disruption involved can also have a disproportionate operational impact. Fortunately, as Mark Hussain, Global Head of Commercial Insurance & Investments at HSBC explains, there are various incentives and benefits that can be used to maximise employee retention
