HSBC to Raise $8.5 Million With Equity-Linked Note in Australia

HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) plans to raise as much as A$8 million ($8.5 million) with a five-year equity- linked product it is offering to individual investors in Australia.

“We would be disappointed if we didn’t raise between A$5 to A$8 million,” Ian Collins, Sydney-based head of sales for global markets at HSBC Bank Australia Ltd., a unit of HSBC, said in a telephone interview on Jan. 31.

The product, called 100+ Series International Equity Investment, is linked to the S&P/ASX 200, Swiss Market Index, MSCI Singapore Free Index, and Taiwan TAIEX Index, according to an HSBC statement detailing the offering.
