HSBC’s ambition in Europe is to build a simpler and more efficient bank, connected to our global network. In line with this strategy, HSBC France will change its name to become HSBC Continental Europe on the 1st December 2020, subject to regulatory and shareholders’ agreements.
As a result, the legal name of our branch will then change from HSBC France, Athens Branch to HSBC Continental Europe, Greece.
Our integrated Continental European bank will help us better serve our clients, simplifying our organisation and making it more effective. The change offers our clients a name that better reflects our business, which is focused on providing access for the Group’s global clients to the region, and serving as a gateway to key international markets for our European clients.
As of the 1st December 2020, here is what will change:
We are in the process of filing those changes with the competent local authorities in accordance with local laws and regulations.
You will continue to receive the same service from the same entity and existing relationship, as well as your day-to-day interactions with HSBC will not change:
As of 1st December 2020 you will be serviced by HSBC Continental Europe, Greece in the same way as you were serviced by HSBC France, Athens Branch.
