HSBC Navigator Survey

HSBC Navigator is the most comprehensive insight into what businesses like yours are thinking now, what is next and how HSBC can help you navigate the global business environment.

We have compiled data from over 8,500 businesses in 34 markets into one global report and reports from every surveyed market. Each report gives you an understanding of what businesses like yours are thinking now, next and how you can continue to grow and be future fit.

  • The 2018 HSBC Navigator survey shows businesses are upbeat about their prospects, encouraged by customer demand and favourable economic conditions, but are revising their strategies as protectionism dents the outlook for international trade.
  • 78% of global firms are positive about the international trading environment, rising to 86% in ASEAN markets and 82% in the EU
  • Four out of five (81%) companies are confident that they will succeed in the current international trading environment
  • Political headwinds are gaining strength as 63% of firms think governments are becoming more protective of their home economies

HSBC integrated ECDS solution

An increasing number of corporates in different industries are using electronic commercial drafts (E-drafts) in their daily operations thanks to wider adoption of the ECDS. The ECDS, established by the People’s Bank of China, is an online platform for corporates to handle commercial drafts. It can help corporates minimise operational and fraud risks compared to paper commercial drafts.

As part of HSBC’s efforts in digital innovation, the integrated ECDS solution will enable customers to handle E-drafts in a simpler way as well as manage their working capital more efficiently.

Through the new solution, customers can easily access the ECDS through HSBCnet, simplify the process of handling E-drafts, and make use of a range of products to improve management in both accounts payable and accounts receivable.
