HSBC Makes $800m Provision for U.S. Money-Laundering Probes

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- HSBC Holdings Plc said it had set aside an additional $800 million to settle U.S. regulatory probes into potential money laundering.

The bank could face corporate criminal charges and the fine could be “significantly higher” than the $1.5 billion in total that has been provisioned so far, HSBC said in a statement today.
