HSBC to open jazzed up branches

HSBC is to build 60 ‘super branches’ in a bid to jazz up banking for a younger generation.

In a presentation to Skinners’ Company’s School for Girls in London last week, chief executive Michael Geoghegan let slip that in an attempt to make banking more exciting, the lender was planning to open around 60 large branches providing a whole range of financial services. Branches will have designer interiors, escalators and interactive TVs.
