HSBC collapses in Hong Kong under pressure from several fronts

September 21, 2020 14:30

Shares of HSBC Holdings Plc plummeted this morning on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange by 4.4% to their lowest level since 1995 and below their latest low in March 2009, closing at HK $29.60. The British bank also closed Friday's session lower on the London Stock Exchange, with a 2.19% drop to 304 pounds.

Europe's largest bank is facing several conflicts that have led to investor mistrust. In China, it is a candidate for the "list of untrustworthy entities", according to Bloomberg, which means that the Chinese government has put this entity on a list of threats to national security.

These problems were exacerbated by the publication of a report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that revealed that several banks have breached the basic regulations in the fight against money laundering.

All of this is added to the problems that the international banking sector is already dragging on due to low interest rates and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
