HSBC also disclosed its intentions to repurchase $200 million worth of its shares. Last year, the bank executed share buybacks three times, amounting to $7 billion. Reuters noted that this move is anticipated to gratify investors with “rewards.”

HSBC’s profits originate from various channels, including $2.5 billion from the divestment of their French banking operations and $1.6 billion derived from the temporary acquisition of Silicon Valley Bank’s UK operations. However, HSBC’s profits experienced a slight downturn due to losses incurred in China’s banking sector, where the bank holds investments.

Reporting a 30% upswing, HSBC stated that its income reached $61 billion in 2023. The bank attributed this surge to “high-interest rates everywhere,” which bolstered its international operations.
