HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) 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.
