Local and Foreign Currency Bonds
If you are looking for returns on your local or foreign currency, HSBC offers local and international investment grade bonds with investment terms of 12 months to 10 years to suit your investment needs.
Bonds are issued by governments and corporations and promise to pay a stream of interest payments, usually semi-annually, over the term of the bond, and the face value of the bond on maturity.
HSBC offers bonds exclusively through the Markets Desk to individuals who are 'wholesale clients' or 'sophisticated investors'1.
If bonds are part of your investment strategy, call the Markets Desk today, the one stop that opens up the world of FX and investment opportunities to you.
