The HSBC bank, the largest in Europe, announced Monday that its net profits increased by 18.6% year-on-year in the first six months of 2019 to reach 8,507 million dollars (7,651 million euros).
In the income statement for the first semester, published today on its official website, HSBC celebrates "strong inertia" in turnover – up 7.6% – although it warns of uncertainties in the coming months due to the types of interest in the United States and geopolitical problems.
The group also announced today the departure "by mutual agreement" of John Flint, until now CEO, who leaves the company after 30 years "at a good time for change" and "prepared for a new personal challenge."
