They work across the global network together with our product partners to deliver working capital, financing, trade, cash and financial markets solutions for our clients. The solutions cover a wide range of products and services from sustainable trade finance to credit derivatives to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisory.
Our clients include large corporations, governments, banks and investors headquartered, operating or investing in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. While our corporate banking clients consist of large multinational and local corporates, our commercial banking clients represent a large and important portion of the economies we serve and are potential future multinational corporates. Our strong and deep local presence across these markets enables us to facilitate trade, capital and investment flows, in and for our footprint.
A key theme that is increasingly driving our business globally is decarbonisation and energy transition. Our teams are taking a leading role in this area, and we’re working with many of our key clients on their transition plans. We’ve allocated $300bn of financing between now and 2030 to support this crucial area.
