We manage our products and services through three global businesses: Global Banking and Markets (‘GBM’), which is further split into several segments MSS, GB ..., Commercial Banking (‘CMB’), and Wealth and Personal Banking (‘WPB’). These segments are supported by Wholesale Services, Digital Business Services, and 11 global functions, including Risk, Finance, Compliance, Legal, and Human Resources.
Markets & Securities Services ('MSS')
MSS is a products group that services all of the Bank's clients, from those in Global Banking to Commercial Banking and Wealth and Personal Banking. We offer clients a range of services and capabilities across asset classes and geographies, supported by dedicated sales, traders and research teams.
Our European teams play a key role in providing cross-asset services, bridging Emerging and Developed Markets, and collaborating with other global businesses to provide clients across the Group with bespoke products and solutions that support their growth ambitions. HSBC Continental Europe plays a key role as the Group's strategic platform for euro-denominated rates products, being primary dealer in all European debts, and has extended its risk management capacities, in particular to Equities products with European stocks.
We continue to invest in technology and digital transformation to enhance client experience, improve operational efficiencies and future-proof the business.

Our trade teams within CMB also provide import and export finance solutions to GB and MSS clients. We also enable customers to gain visibility over their liquidity positions, which in turn helps clients to unlock efficiencies in their treasury structures.
