HSBC to meet Hong Kong retail investors after spurning break up call

This comes a day after HSBC promised higher dividends.

Bosses of HSBC will meet retail investors on Tuesday in Hong Kong, its biggest market, just a day after it rejected a proposal by stakeholder Ping An to break-of its Asian business.

The informal meeting comes a day after HSBC rejected the break-up call, reported forecast-beating profit and promised higher dividends in 2023, sending its Hong Kong-listed shares to a one-month high.
