    HSBC were top of the Forbes list for world's largest companies a few months ago, but I believe that was based on a composite score across a number of possible measures of size, meaning that some companies would be bigger if you took just the total value of held assets, for example.

    That's what I meant! Lol!

    I opened an account with the Midland Bank way back in 1967 when I started my first job. Their service was always impeccable, so I reacted to their being taken over by HSBC with some trepidation.

    I needn't have worried. I have continued to receive superb service from HSBC and I consider them to be the safest bank out there.

    Let me just fill you in on something to help you sleep tonight.

    1) HSBC does not stand for anything


    :rotfl: Yep. When I used to work for them and the name change (not the takeover) went through, we got a lot of phonecalls from Daily Mail reading customers I suppose. This is what they told us to tell customers when they asked what HSBC stood for.

    I always thought that maybe Honest and Integrity might have been a better business building answer:confused:

    That or maybe the Hot Sausage and Bacon Company.

    Indeed-LOL! Had to laugh.. Maybe you're right but I think HSBC has taken honesty literally in this case and has just chosen to go with the obvious. Very funny your reply though-amused me after my Sunday morning fallout with my Fiance! :j

    I'd agree - customer service was very good - the only reason I left was because they couldn't match the rate that I am now receiving on my current account.
