Corporate communications

Shareholders will be informed when corporate communications and actionable corporate communications (“Corporate Communications”) are available by electronic means if they have registered their email addresses. The Corporate Communications are also available on our reporting page and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange website (at The documents we make available electronically include the Annual Report and Accounts; Strategic Report; Interim Report; notices of shareholders’ meetings; and circulars.

Shareholders can sign up to receive Corporate Communications from HSBC by email on the Computershare website. Please register with Computershare as explained above and sign up for electronic communications.

Once you have signed up for electronic communication, we will send you an email each time a new document is made available. Email addresses will not be used for any purpose other than communicating with you as a shareholder.

Receiving Corporate Communications by email is more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than sending printed copies in the post.

You may revoke your registration or request a printed copy of any Corporate Communication from Computershare, at any time. Please contact Computershare (details above). Please note that such printed copy instruction shall be valid for one year starting from the receipt date of your instruction, or until the instructions have been revoked or superseded, whichever is earlier.

Please note that in certain circumstances we may be unable to send documents by email, for example, due to local laws that may restrict this. In such cases, we reserve the right to send printed copies of the relevant document or information.

If Computershare do not receive your electronic submission, you are deemed to have consent to receive the website version of all Corporate Communications, and a notification of the publication of the Corporate Communications on our website will be sent to you. If you have not supplied a functional email address or registered to be sent hard copies, or you are deemed to have consent to receive the website version, we will notify you by post when Corporate Communications become available on the website.
