Sky News - HSBC turns to Kissinger

HSBC Canary Wharf

Europe's biggest bank has turned to one of the world's leading statesmen for advice as it closes in on a decision about whether to move its headquarters from the UK.

Sky News has learnt that board members of HSBC have met Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State, to discuss the geopolitical implications of the ongoing review of the bank's domicile.

Sources said that Kissinger, who has a role with JP Morgan, the Wall Street giant, as well as his own consulting firm, had been asked to provide advice on a number of options being considered by HSBC directors.

The bank said in April that it would launch a formal review of the location of its headquarters in the wake of profound regulatory and tax reforms across the banking sector.
