HSBC Holdings Plc has said it will buy the investment management unit of India’s L&T Finance Holdings Ltd, the latest push to build up the Asian wealth and investment business that is at the forefront of the bank’s turnaround plans.

The London-headquartered lender said it had agreed terms to acquire L&T Investment Management, which had looked destined to be bought by Blackstone Inc. after the US fund management group was reported to be exploring a bid.
