About HSBC Bank India

In 1853, the Mercantile Bank of India was set up in Mumbai. The source of HSBC Bank India goes back to the incorporation of this bank. From that time, the bank has gradually developed in accessibility and portfolio of services and facilities, to be on a par with the fast changing economic and financial requirements of its clients.

The Mercantile Bank began its journey in Mumbai with an authorized capital of Rs.5 million. By 1855, the Mercantile Bank started banking operations in other cities in India such as Calcutta (Kolkata) and Madras (Chennai).

In 1959, the Mercantile Bank was taken over by the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited. This acted as a major stepping stone for the present day HSBC Bank India banking division. HSBC, a leader in retail and corporate banking, started functioning as an international bank since the time of its inception in 1865. It facilitated the financing requirements of the traders in Europe, China, and the United States.

The head office of the bank is situated at the Flora Fountain Building in Mumbai.

Over the decade of the 1990s, Hong Kong Bank has converted itself as one of the major financial services providers in the world. The bank takes pride for introducing the first ATM (automated teller machine) in the country in 1987. It is also celebrating 150 years of service in India.
