PESTLE and SWOT analysis of HSBC Bank 2018

By: Patricia Nanjekhe & Jonathan Kush

The UK banking industry is highly oligopolistic with the biggest four banks Lloyds Banking Group, Barclays, RBS and HSBC bank, also referred to as the “Big Four” controlling a combined market share of 77.17% for current accounts in the UK’s banking industry. Using Pestel, Swot, Porters five forces and BCG matrix, this report takes an in-depth look at the various internal and external factors that pose a risk factor to the growth of HSBC bank including Brexit and technological trends such as the rise of FinTech firms. Some macro trends in technology and demographics favor further growth for HSBC bank while others are likely to alter or shape the nature of competition within the UK banking sector with potential to cause serious disruption to all imcumbent UK banks. Using Swot and BCG analysis, we identify HSBC’s major internal strengths, resources, capabilities and strategic business units (SBUs) that can help it mitigate arising threats and internal weaknesses while taking advantage of new opportunity trends that are likely to shape the UK banking industry for the longterm.
