HSBC’s Saudi wing recently revealed a large provision for lawsuits, just as Moody’s predicted in mid-March
HSBC Holdings plc’s (ADR) (NYSE:HSBC) new fund inflows were blocked by the Saudi regulator in 2014-15, and we now know the reason. Yesterday, the bank’s Saudi unit revealed lawsuit provisions worth $42 million for the past two years. We seek to highlight how the bank is moving in the direction Moody’s recently predicted.
The figure could be one of the reasons HSBC stock fell 3% yesterday, and opened down 1.29% today. The provisions were accumulated over the past two years, and will be utilized to pay fines on violated regulations, from 2002 to 2014, and cater to future fines. The bank said it would not reveal details of settlements reached in the past.
The company has been inspected by various capital market authorities during the 2002-2014 period. On its website, it said the provisions were for the settlement of past issues, and a part of the provisions was put aside owing to high risk attached to the terms on which the remaining issues will be solved. The bank is uncertain about how much time the remaining issues would take to be resolved.
The ban on HSBC Saudi Asset Management Company was imposed in 2014, and lifted last year. According to Bloomberg, regulators found the company had breached local laws, but details over which ones, are unknown.
The revelations are a cause of concern for investors, since the bank has been involved in a lot of litigation around the globe. The company paid $618 million fines in 2014, over rigging foreign exchange benchmarks. It settled a US money laundering case in 2012, with $1.9 billion.
Business Finance News believes the company needs to tackle its risk management and compliance issues urgently, to be able to dispose off recurrent litigation. The company has improved compliance measure at a commendable pace, but needs to fortify the measures to improve profitability.
In Saudi Arabia, the bank’s profits last year were recorded at 279 million riyals, while the figure had come in at 229 million riyals in 2014. But profitability elsewhere is not pleasing. It recorded a net loss of $1.325 billion in fourth-quarter fiscal 2015 (4QFY15), while in 3QFY15, it had recorded net income at $5.23 billion. As a high priority growth market, Saudi Arabia gets special attention in matters related to expansion, but the aforementioned ban made it harder to pursue plans.
At the start of February, the Saudi unit was found to have hired two senior compliance employees, who held unaccredited business degrees. As such, they were ineligible even for an entry level position. This lifted the lid on the bank’s loopholes in checks and balances, which are bound to cause further issues in future.
Last Monday, a US federal judge rejected an appeal on the part of 14 large banks, to dismiss a private lawsuit, which accused them of rigging the interest rate benchmark, used in the derivative market, which happens to be worth $553 trillion. HSBC is one of those banks, which suggests we can reasonably expect it to incur further litigation expenses this quarter.
On March 22, 2016, Moody’s warned that legal fees and remediation costs will continue to add downside risks for large British banks. It has also warned that charges are on the rise, and profitability is likely to be affected.
The combined litigation charges for Lloyds, HSBC, Barclays, RBS, and Santander UK, rose 40%, to 15 billion pounds in 2015. Laurie Mayers, an associate managing director at Moody’s said: “This significant increase in 2015, despite some decline in 2013 and 2014, demonstrates that these charges continue to present considerable tail risk.”
The aforementioned banks paid 7.6 billion pounds for payment protection insurance (PPI), which is a 51% year-over-year (YoY) increase. At the time, Moody’s had said that these banks will continue to increase provisions for litigation, and that prediction came true in the case of HSBC’s Saudi wing. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)’s deadline for the filing of relevant PPI claims is 2018.
The bank has been reducing the size of its businesses around the world, to reduce financial-crime risk, having recently cut operations in 17 countries. It has also shut its branches in regions it is currently doing business in. The monitor looking after the settlement on HSBC’s money laundering case, has uncovered several potential lapses, from which we conclude that despite efforts to bring its compliance system up to US standards, it still struggles.
A five-year deferred prosecution agreement was part of the deal HSBC struck with the government in 2012. The government demanded that it improve compliance, and hire a monitor to keep an eye on progress. HSBC’s banking license in the US would be at risk if it fails to impress the US Department of Justice (DoJ). US authorities also found that HSBC was involved in the trafficking of $881 million worth of drugs, from Mexico to the US.
HSBC chief legal officer Stuart Levey said: “It’s as high a priority as anything in the bank, and we’re making the progress that we need to make.” He said he believed the bank would not be prosecuted after 2017.
Mr. Levey said the bank’s ability to detect fraud had increased manifold in the last few years. In 2015, the bank’s anti-financial crime program cost it $2.9 billion. He also said that the number of compliance officers at HSBC had been increased to three times as many as before, taking the current number to 9,000.
