It’s why we’re here
For more than 150 years we’ve been helping our clients get to where they want to be.
Our global presence has made established and emerging markets accessible to multinationals, midcaps, family-owned businesses and startups. Right now, we are connecting businesses large and small to the support they need to get through this challenging time.
From the railway to the internet to the electric car, each time the world has moved from old to new we’ve helped make that happen by providing pioneers and entrepreneurs with global finance expertise and access to funding.
When important projects need finance, we find the investors to back them. That’s enabled construction of roads, bridges, transport networks and neighbourhoods, expanded digital connectivity and launched new energy projects, all over the world. We will help our clients to keep on doing that.
Our personal loans and mortgages open up new possibilities for private customers, while our deposit accounts and investment portfolios provide ways to save for tomorrow – and to withstand the unexpected too. Through our advice and planning we help protect wealth through all times, so it can be passed on safely from one generation to the next.
Our innovations in financial services have made it easier to manage money, raise finance and do business everywhere. We continue to look for ways to improve banking.
From the beginning, this bank has been here for those who want to move forward. By supporting the plans, ambitions and dreams of our clients, we create positive impact for them, the economy and society as a whole.
Now and tomorrow, we are with you.
