HSBC Hong Kong today formally launched “HSBC Jade”, a new proposition offering a unique combination of personalised relationship management, advanced wealth solutions and luxury lifestyle services to support the needs of high net worth clients.

HSBC Jade launches as a distinctive standalone service for customers with complex investment needs and investible assets above USD1 million. Through Jade, HSBC seeks to further deepen its relationship with existing high net worth clients and attract new clients in Hong Kong, Asia’s leading wealth management centre.

Kevin Martin, Regional Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Asia-Pacific, HSBC, said, “Private wealth in Asia is growing faster than anywhere else, driven by the region’s dynamic economies, higher savings and new wealth creation. HSBC has an opportunity to work with this strategically important group of clients who are not only building their financial wealth, but are also increasingly focused on protecting and preserving prosperity for the next generation, fulfilling international ambitions and embracing new lifestyle experiences.

“HSBC Jade embodies our holistic approach to wealth management including family, mobility, international banking and health and wellness. We’re bringing together our leading expertise in retail and private banking, insurance and asset management, to offer the best of HSBC to provide a distinctive service in the high net worth space,” Mr Martin added.

HSBC Jade clients will be served by dedicated and experienced relationship managers – HSBC Jade Directors – alongside a team of multi-disciplinary wealth experts who will support clients on wealth management strategy, leveraging the insights of HSBC’s global wealth management franchise. Working alongside Jade Directors, Senior Wealth Planning Consultants will help clients set up their financial profile, complemented by a range of products including investments, insurance, lending and savings solutions, and track the clients’ holdings globally through digital tools.

Greg Hingston, Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Hong Kong, HSBC, commented, “Since we first launched Jade by HSBC Premier as an invite-only membership experience, we have seen solid growth in demand for this bespoke international wealth management service. Establishing HSBC Jade as a distinctive proposition enables us to extend Jade to new clients and further invest in dedicated resources to provide the first-class customer service and exclusive offerings to our high net worth clients, addressing their international and complex wealth management needs. In addition, we have an array of distinguished privileges to provide them unparalleled lifestyle experiences.”

Mr Hingston added, “The location of our first Jade Centre in Hong Kong has an added significance. This was where we opened our second branch in Hong Kong back in 1929. Jade clients visiting us here will be able to see some of the Bank’s precious historical artefacts from as far back as 1865, when the owner of The Peninsula hotel was already a client of ours. Drawing inspiration from our predecessors, we wish to cultivate long-term relationships with our clients to last for generations.”

HSBC has partnered with Ten Lifestyle Group to bring to our clients the HSBC Jade concierge service offering a range of tailored luxury experiences and lifestyle benefits, from direct booking for flights, hotels and travel experiences to invitations to private events.
