Introduction Brand management The design elements Approvals

The HSBC brand has been established in many markets all over the world. A programme of change and consolidation of our name began in the late 1990s and has continued ever since. We have established the brand and its trademark so that it is now a globally recognised icon. It is a powerful asset across all our business lines and gives us strengths and values that help us to grow our business and enter new geographic areas. The values of our brand are clearly expressed in the Brand Book and this helps guide us and differentiate us in our highly competitive markets. The integrity in our trade mark corporate signature is a vitally important asset and one which every colleague should feel duty bound to protect. The integrity of this asset is to be governed by this manual and standards. It is the ultimate responsibility of every business head and CEO to ensure these guidelines are followed.

brand management
Introduction The principles outlined in this section relate to a key function of Marketing and are something that, when done well, will yield many tangible as well as intangible business benefits. A strong well-managed brand can yield positive preference for products and services in a competitive market, as well as command a premium price over competitors. It can allow cost effective entry into new categories, and can yield long term differentiation of the business as well as intangibles such as positioning us as a desirable employer to prospective employees and allowing us preferential negotiating positions with third parties. The benefits of a strong brand are many fold. The value of the HSBC brand is not something measured and accounted for in any formal way. However public studies such as the Interbrand valuation conducted in association with Business Week Magazine will be observed and followed as an indicator of some measure of progress.

brand management
Brand Schemes The strength of the global HSBC brand is not in any doubt and its sustained momentum is something that we must ensure for the future. There are some circumstances when leading with the HSBC Brand is not possible and where marketplace conditions demand a different approach. Any needs to develop new propositions that carry a differing or new brand identity must be thought through thoroughly and the business case developed with GHQ GMQ input. The areas of precedent that exist in the organisation for configuring brands exist in the following broad categories, these should cover all possible permutations of our business. Separate Brands In some jurisdiction and areas of operation the brand name will be used for a business that is totally separate and different from the HSBC parent and no references to the parent are manifest in any way the brand presents itself to its customers and marketplace. These are often for regulatory or cultural issues or businesses where we are not the majority share holder. There are currently no examples of any significance of this within the Group. Endorsed Brands This is where a name and identity is used that, in most cases has been acquired through the purchase of a business, and that has been deemed appropriate to continue to market under the brand name acquired. Appropriate circumstances might include such factors as heritage of the (acquired) brand, market sector in which it operates, customer equity in the brand etc. Any of these conditions benefit also from identifying this brand name as part of a greater whole and so an endorsement of Member HSBC (hexagon) Group is added to the brand name. This is carried as part of the logo scheme on all materials, employee business cards, advertising publicity material, internal communications, web-sites and all printed materials. Please note that HSBC (hexagon) Group is not a legal entity and is a descriptor only.

brand management
Surrogate Brands This form of using the brand identity is not very common and occurs in the business through historical reasons or local management requirements. It is often a transition form of branding moving to an HSBC identity. This scheme should not be used unless there is a very strong business based case. Proposals to use a scheme such as this must be referred to GHQ GMQ and will only be approved in very exceptional circumstances. Sub-Brands Using the HSBC brand against some market segments requires an identity that signals a different service level or change in the proposition that means a different stance for the HSBC brand. In these circumstances the core values of the HSBC brand and its strategy remain intact and clearly manifest. It is what is added to the overall HSBC brand positioning that comes through the sub-brand modifier. Sub-Brands will always use the full HSBC brand identity and conform to its guidelines and have the Sub-Brand title added, for example HSBC Amanah. Ownership of Surrogate Brands and Sub-Brands If you intend to register any surrogate brands and sub-brands (which GHQ GMQ has approved) as trade marks, please note that these trade marks should be registered in the name of HSBC Holdings plc.

Product Descriptors This final category of labelling uses a simple form of description with the HSBC brand and identity to give a clear indication of which element of HSBC a customer or member of staff is dealing with. This is very commonly used across many business lines to help guide and simplify the customer/staff members interaction with us. There are many examples and these include things such as HSBC Mortgage Services, HSBC Asset Management, HSBC Private Banking, HSBC Stockbrokers, HSBC Card Services, HSBC Vehicle Finance. Notification of variants or new descriptors must be communicated to GHQ GMQ. The essential rule is that they must be highly descriptive of the activity and must not be difficult or ambiguous to interpret. Use of HSBC + hexagon symbol in text The use or depiction of the hexagon symbol in text is not allowed. The letters HSBC may be used without the hexagon symbol as a descriptor. The Group brand (HSBC + hexagon symbol) may only be used when the full legal name is clearly displayed, and only with the specific approval on a case-by-case basis of GHQ COM, who will not consider requests that have not been previously been vetted by Use of the HSBC brand for Third Party Agents On the related issue of the appointment of third party agents, the use of the HSBC brand in any way (on business cards, marketing or promotional material etc.) should not be allowed without prior GHQ GMQ approval. This is to prevent any confusion or potential liability if unauthorised parties pass themselves off as part of, or endorsed by, the HSBC Group. Testimonials/Endorsement Testimonials should be granted on a case-by-case basis. Each should be referred to the appropriate authority in any local business unit and GHQ GMQ informed. Issues such as reputational risk and business benefit to HSBC must be considered carefully. the local LGA and COM. GHQ GMQ should be advised of all existing arrangements and new ones require approval. Further guidance can be found in the Group Marketing FIM. Trademark Licences Except where agreed otherwise by GHQ GMQ, a third party who has been given approval to use the HSBC Corporate Signatures should enter into a trade mark licence agreement. Trade mark licences can be prepared by Group Legal Department once GHQ GMQ approval has been obtained and the relevant information concerning the licence is provided to Group Legal.

brand management
Co-branding Co-branding is defined as any circumstances where the HSBC appear with any other brand, including joint promotions, advertising, marketing materials and sponsorship. All co-branding opportunities are reviewed individually and should be agreed with local legal departments, marketing/public affairs departments before sending to GHQ GMQ for approval. Co-branding publications and literature In the majority of cases the third party branding should be placed either on the back cover or the inside front cover. In exceptional circumstances, and with prior approval from GHQ GMQ, the third party brand can appear on the front cover. In this situation the other brand should be less prominent than the HSBC brand and placed as far away from it as possible.

corporate signature with strapline


The marketing strapline is added to the HSBC corporate signature (see 3.02) to form the HSBC corporate signature with strapline. The relationship of the elements is fixed. The strapline must never be used on its own. The HSBC corporate signature with strapline is used to brand all marketing material unless there is a legal reason precluding its use (eg HSBC Insurance) - in these circumstances the corporate signature should be used without the strapline Language variations

corporate signature
The corporate signature is the major visual element of the brand identity and comprises the letters HSBC and the hexagon symbol in a fixed relationship. The horizontal corporate signature is the primary and preferred mark and should be used for the majority of applications The centred corporate signature may only be used in limited circumstances where the horizontal width available precludes the use of the horizontal mark, and only then with prior written approval of GHQ GMQ. Usage The corporate signature is used to brand all corporate stationery items and it should be used in marketing material for businesses which are precluded from using the marketing strapline, for example when the legal entity being advertised is not a bank (eg HSBC Insurance).
