HSBC to move to new Birmingham HQ

HSBC is to set up a new headquarters in Birmingham for its retail bank, moving around 1,000 employees from its London office. The move is in response to legislation that forces banks to ring-fence their riskier investment banking activities from their retail banking businesses. Birmingham was the original base of Midland Bank, which was taken over by HSBC in 1992.
