HSBC said it is targeting mid-single-digit percentage growth in lending over the medium to long term for its Asia business but is more cautious in the short-term. It aims for mid-teens return on tangible equity.

For the group as a whole, HSBC targets a RoTE of at least 12% from 2023. For 2022 it had reported a return on average tangible equity of 9.9%.
"All parts of HSBC Asia are now motoring," said HSBC Chief Executive Noel Quinn. "In mainland China, we are ideally positioned to facilitate business with the rest of the world; in South and Southeast Asia, we have invested heavily in Singapore, and we have significantly bolstered our growing business in India."
HSBC shares were 1.5% higher at 608.90 pence each in London on Monday morning.
