STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF HSBC BANK

Background History Businesses are continuously evolving to respond in every customer’s needs. To be specific, the Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC), one of the best financial institution developed different marketing strategies to maintain competitiveness. Actually, HSBC Holdings, a British financial holding company with origins in Hong Kong and Shanghai, where offices were opened in 1865 under a special charter which allowed Hong Kong rather than London as a headquarter location (Johnson 2000). Yao (1998) related that the bank remained an eastern force until the 1950s, when overexposure to the crown colony and its textile industry pointed to a need for geographical diversification. HSBC was established to finance the growing trade between China and Europe, and is one of the largest banking and financial services organizations in the world. Its international network comprises over 9,500 offices in 76 countries and territories in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, the Americas, the Middle East, and Africa (‘Who is HSBC?’ 2010). HSBC was in intense competition all over Asia with Chase Manhattan which showed interest in a small bank in India and Malaysia. HSBC pre-empted by purchasing the bank in 1959 (Huat 2000). In the same year another defensive acquisition became necessary, when an investor group tried to buy the British Bank of the Middle East, strip its assets and sell the branches to HSBC, which did the bulk of its Middle East business through the bank (Ji 2003). A few years later a banking crisis erupted in Hong Kong. HSBC was not seriously affected but Hang Seng Bank, the colony's second largest, was about to flounder in a run. Chase offered help but Hang Seng preferred HSBC, because of its local roots, and sold it a majority stake in 1965 (Jones 2001). These three deals illuminate the difference between corporate strategy and the realities of the marketplace (King 1991). Faure & Pui-Tak (2004) stated that HSBC occupies a unique position in the Hong Kong banking sphere. Besides being responsible for the bulk of note-issue, HSBC has some other attributes, which are now associated with a ‘central bank’ in where it acts as a banker to the government, although not exclusively. With this consideration, this paper will be discussing the strategic practices of HSBC.

INDUSTRY COMPETITORS. In the banking industry in which HSBC belongs, regulatory and technological transformations are the major catalysts, making entrenched competitive structures obsolete and mandating the development of new products, new processes, new strategies, and new public policies toward the business under examination (Bond & Green, 2003). Financial centres, in dynamic competition with each other, have undergone further regulatory change in their efforts to capture a greater share of international trade in financial services, even as common efforts at the regional and global level have tried to support safety and soundness and a reasonably level competitive playing field. Banks and securities firms have had to devise and implement new strategies--sometimes leading events or (perhaps more often) responding to them--and the financial services industry has seen a wave of mergers, acquisitions, and strategic alliances in virtually all parts of the world. There are numerous major banking players in the industry, included in the list is HSBC, who strive for market leadership in all their business aspects. As such, the level of industry competition is very stiff and very aggressive. 

Potential Entrants Natural barriers to entry in the banking industry contain the need for capital investment, human resources, and technology and the significance of economies of scale. It also comprises the function of contracting costs avoided by a close relationship between the vendor and its client, which in turn is related to the avoidance of opportunistic behavior by either party (Bond & Green, 2003). The competitive structure of the industry therefore depends on the degree of potential competition. This represents an application of the ‘contestable markets’ concept, which suggests that the existence of potential entrants causes existing players to act as if those entrants were already active in the market. Consequently, pricing margins, product quality, and the degree of innovation in this industry exhibits characteristics of intense competition even though the degree of market concentration is in fact quite high.



Buyers: Banks have a extensive history--a history loaded in product mixture, international range, and, above all, incessant transformations and revision. These competitive changes have forced alterations, and in general have improved the level and competence of services banks offer to clientele, thereby escalating transactional degree (Bond & Green, 2003). Coupled with these, the customers have become informed and savvy users of financial services that banks offer. 10

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF HSBC BANK They have required that service providers meet their very specific individual needs, therefore showing that clients to this industry have shaped what it is right now. This means, on an overall note, that buyers have a high influence on the workings of the global banking industry, as they have the ability to affect it.



Suppliers: The suppliers to this industry are mostly the providers of technology that banking firms use in the manner of their businesses (Bond & Green, 2003). There is an massive variety of new ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ technologies at work within the banking industry (Bond & Green, 2003). Hard technologies consist of advances in telecommunications, computers, analytics, software tools, and video communications, which are enabling participants to have better information at lower cost; to integrate this information with thinking, communication, and analysis; and, finally, to use the resulting knowledge along with other technologies to distribute services to clients more efficiently, effectively, and economically. Soft technologies, or financial innovation - things like, say, the use of derivative instruments such as interest rate and currency swaps - often use these hard technologies to rethink the delivery of services. Out of these hard and soft technologies have come the securitization and globalization movements so often talked about in the press. From the above enumeration, it could be said that suppliers significantly affect the banking industry through their tools of trade.



Substitutes: There is a high level of substitutes for the banking industry, evidenced by the numerous numbers of major players in the market (Bond & Green, 2003). The cost to transfer to another banking firm is also relatively low, so the substitution rate is pretty high.

THE KEY SUCCESS FACTORS FOR THE CHANGE TO STRATEGY 

Internal Condition The most important will be the human factor as it is the heart that’s drive the company. Having the right culture and people to create conducive environment, and be lead by strong visionary leaders and champion management that capable to manage its people and process.



External Condition The external condition will be on the PEST analysis that been done. With strong and stable external environment will contribute for the need to change strategic option. Furthermore, the full support from our Group and re-alignment with our other Hub is important without it it’s impossible to achieve the vision and mission.

It structure management is important to execute the strategic option. c) Market External market trend is more into technology with faster and reliable system. With high speed connectivity the market had been more competing and broaden it market widely. d) Risk 12

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF HSBC BANK Each strategic option has very own risk but with stern control and better risk management can mitigate any potential risk and minimize the impact. e) Potential Barriers to Be Overcome Change management will be the potential barrier since HSBC is still in it comfort zone. By doing an organisational development and learning it can identify the risk and overcome the barrier of change. f) Recommendations HSBC is passionate with customer importance and makes every effort to be an "all-weather umbrella" to its clients, by considering diverse strategies for varying situations. It had to branch out in order to equate revenue and expenditure, reduce risk and stay profitable, with an equal importance in its ability to anticipate change. The investment banking business of HSBC has begun a strategy of major expansion and growth with one clear objective, which is to establish themselves as one of the world’s top three investment banks, and these strategies are based around a philosophy of organic growth and a transition towards becoming a clientoriented investment bank. With this detail, the business must go on to find innovative software programs and relate effectively to other companies that produce these software programs to become updated with the latest improvement in the World Wide Web. The business must economically and efficiently generate a good connection with their clientele and shareholders, to incessantly operate. HSBC must constantly conceptualize and execute good projects to be able to set trends in the banking industry. Apart from developing business strategies, the business have to focus on building employee and customer associations, in harmony to strategic management concepts, for it is necessary to establish and focus on the needs of the clientele, as clientele are the motive for being alive in the business.

CHAPTER 6 Assessment of the Usefulness of Strategic Management Models According to Andrews, (1980) in his book entitled “The Concept of Corporate Strategy”, “Corporate strategy is the pattern of decisions in a company that determines and reveals its objectives, purposes, or goals, produces the principal policies and plans for achieving those goals, and defines the range of business the company is to pursue, the kind of economic and human organization it is or intends to be, and the nature of economic and non-economic contribution it intends to make to its shareholders, employees, customers, and communities. With this, the models help in identifying the complex web of thought, ideas, goals, and expectations that provides general guidance for specific actions in pursuit of a particular ends. Strategy also is at once the course chart and the journey imagine, and the voyage that has purpose, and an end to be kept in view. Actually, Bowman (1994) quote on Strategic Management: “Strategic management is the process of making and implementing strategic decisions. (It) is about the process of strategic change” With respect to the usefulness of the strategic models, it enables this paper consider the process that involves planning and operationalizing the strategy of an organization. The involvement of teams in the strategic management process greatly facilitates its successful implementation. Moreover, the nature of strategic management for an organization is to be successful, and it is very important to chalk out a sound strategic system. Strategic management helps in the formulation of effective organizational goals. The effective formulation and implementation of strategic management techniques can lead an organization to the path of success. From the discussion of the strategic practices of HSBC which are outlined by different strategic models such as PEST and Porter’s Five Forces Model, it is evidently to say that technology can actually contribute in an industry or it is possibly the cause of burden. The strategic practice of HSBC shows effectiveness but still it has drawbacks to consider. The strategic practices of HSBC g shows can provide value to customers. This can be done by offering a service or product line that is attractive to potential customers. However, in the 14

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF HSBC BANK case of HSBC, it is not advisable to rely so much in technology when giving services to the customers in order to maintain a good banking experience. In the end, businesses engaged so much in technology has its share of good and bad impacts, socially, economically and even environmentally. In addition, it has to be noted that banking is not one industry but many. Hence, the achievement of sustainable special intention business or its continual development for the collective benefits of the world, may therefore depend on a change in strategy and planning of the industry in order to identify common ground more easily, and to exploit further returns without sacrificing the one that lays the golden egg, in manner of speaking. All said, future research may have to focus on participatory planning involving business, governments, host communities and campaigners with a greater view to common ground.

Competitive advantage of HSBC Briefly, competitive advantage is a position a business occupies against its competitors. HSBC follows some strategies for creating a competitive advantage. Likewise

Differentiation and sustaining the brand image: HSBC has already created a brand image in the customers mind and that makes them different among others. It is a renowned bank not only in Bangladesh, but also throughout the world. So customers have a trust on this name and they feel secure to bank with HSBC. Retaining this brand position is one of the key policies of HSBC to differentiate themselves among others.



Quality leadership: Quality advantage occurs with HSBC when it delivers the same services as its competitors but at a better quality. It has an approach that focuses on providing the same quality service to all of their customers. So even they have specific number of branches compare to the main competitors, but they believe to ensure the quality services over there; rather than going with lots of branches.

Through the use of information technology, competitors of HSBC may outgrow the company by using all its resources to develop new products and services that will be appealing for the customers. Moreover, the alliances of larger organization may also be considered as one of the strengths of HSBC’s competitors. The competitors of HSBC may also have strength in terms of having powerful brand image as well as strong market leadership. Weaknesses 18

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF HSBC BANK One of the weaknesses of the rival companies of HSBC is its lack of resources to sustain their competitive advantage. In addition, rival companies of HSBC may also lack the ability to reach different customers because of distance barrier. Poor management systems may also be considered as one of the weaknesses of competitors of HSBC. The rival companies of HSBC may also have weaknesses in terms of having weak marketing approaches and brand image.

Opportunities The opportunities of the rival companies of HSBC may include the following. 

Major productive and favourable market conditions.



Alteration in line with regulatory or competitive market environment



Changes and advancement of technological aspects and enhances buyer/supplier relationship Threats



Major adverse and unfavourable conditions in an industry’s market settings representing obstacles to the company’s desire competition position and advantage.



The threats of new entrants or new industries which will compete effectively in the market.



The slow growth of the market in which the industry belongs



Rapid technological changes and the existence of new revised policies and government regulations.

Recommendation 

HSBC is already a brand name which is recognized all over the country. Yet I have come up with my own assessment and some recommendation for HSBC, on the areas that I have covered so far. Like- HSBC has very few numbers of branches in Bangladesh.

19

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF HSBC BANK 

They should expand their branches more in Dhaka as well as in the whole country. This will not only increase their business area but also give chance to serve more customers.



They are more concerned with the global and corporate customer group.



In addition to that, they can also give some special service and facilities to other customer groups as well.



HSBC has always stepped ahead in terms of bringing new technological advantage in products and services.



They also put focus on providing and ensuring quality service to all of their customers.



Even though Bangladesh Bank has many rules and regulation for the banks operating in Bangladesh, but then also competitors are increasing day by day in this sector.



So considering this factor they should have proper strategic plans, both short term and long term, so that they can face any type of challenge and their business can have smooth running.
