While I usually have a little knowledge about things, R trumped me when we were talking about the HSBC Bank. Its name is rather like saying PIN number that you use for your electric banking. As the the N in PIN stands for number, it is silly to say PIN number and it follows that is silly to say HSBS Bank. So just HSBS.
HSBC is the second largest company on the London Stock Exchange. We have HSBC in Melbourne and I have seen it in many parts of the world.
Oh yes, R trumped me by saying the bank has something to do with Hong Kong. He was quite correct. HSBC is the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. It took over the huge English bank, Midland.
I now know what HSBC stands for. I don't care to research any further.
