Breaking news: headline acquisitions

About this collection

In 1972, HSBC launched a group-wide staff magazine to keep employees informed about company news – from acquisitions and new products, to people appointments and sports fixtures. This selection of front covers charts our expansion through a series of notable acquisitions over two decades. Beginning with the full purchase of Marine Midland in the US in the 1980s, we also travel to Europe and Latin America, taking in HSBC’s global reach.
