Awards for Excellence 2013: Best Risk adviser

Simple solutions for a highly complex market have driven HSBC to the top of the risk advisory ladder, together with an active approach to new regulations and a diversity of business that is hard to beat.

Awards for Excellence 2013

Best Risk adviser: HSBC

Also shortlisted: Citi and Deutsche Bank

Risk advisory isn’t what it used to be. Sure, clients still have risks that need to be sold or mitigated. They need advisers to help them to find ways do it and to use their balance sheet to finance those means where necessary.

But the risk management industry is becoming increasingly bespoke, rather than product driven. Structuring deals remains at the heart of the business, but structuring is a word the industry does not like to use after the financial crisis, in particular where derivatives might be involved.

And when it comes to helping a broad group of clients solve risk management problems across asset classes, sectors and geographies, no firm is more impressive today than HSBC.
