The HSBC brand has been established in many markets all over the world. A programme of change and consolidation of our name began in the late 1990’s and has continued ever since. We have established the brand and its trademark so that it is now a globally recognised icon. It is a powerful asset across all our business lines and gives us strengths and values that help us to grow our business and enter new geographic areas. The values of our brand are clearly expressed in the ‘Brand Book’ and this helps guide us and differentiate us in our highly competitive markets. The integrity in our trade mark corporate signature is a vitally important asset and one which every colleague should feel duty bound to protect. The integrity of this asset is to be governed by this manual and standards. It is the ultimate responsibility of every business head and CEO to ensure these guidelines are followed.
