When it comes to choosing the best high yield savings account, many of us look for different things - placing greater weight on certain bank features than others. For myself, when I'm deciding which bank presents the top savings opportunity for my money, I tend to go with the bigger financial institutions - banks that have been around the block a few times and have proven themselves capable of surviving, even thriving during the worst economies. Perhaps one of the oldest, largest, and most established financial institutions in the market today, and one that has indeed joined the "too big to fail" community of super giants, is British banking conglomerate - HSBC Bank. Founded during the mid 1800's by the British and based in Hong Kong and Shanghai during the early years, the HongKong and Shanghai Banking Corporation grew out of a pressing banking need to facilitate the rapidly growing trade between China and Europe. After the handover of Hong Kong to China, the British banking giant moved its corporate headquarters back to England, and shortened its name to HSBC Bank. To this very day, HSBC continues to maintain a significant presence in East Asia where it had its roots, but has significantly expanded the reach of its multi-national operations, making its banking presence felt in other parts of the world, including Europe and the Americas.
