How much will this loan cost me?
The cost will depend on the loan amount, terms and APR — which you’ll have to get through an HSBC representative. HSBC considers each loan unique and sets its terms on a case-by-case basis. Everything is computed by the bank per application, making it difficult to pin down set minimums, maximums, rates or terms before applying.

How it works
HSBC’s term loans have a fixed APR, so you can expect a standard payment each month. Because HSBC has a high maximum revenue requirement, you are able to request large loans. The APR and term you’re given will be determined by your business’s financial information.
What do I need to qualify?
HSBC only has two requirements on its website:
- Annual revenue of $5 million
- Based in the US
You and your business may need to meet additional requirements depending on the amount you need to borrow and how you plan to use your funds.
What information do I need to apply?
The specific documents you need to provide will vary. In general, you will need to demonstrate that it is profitable and can easily repay your loan. An HSBC representative will be able to outline what documents you should bring when you book an appointment.
What industries does HSBC work with?
HSBC doesn’t have a list of industries it lends to. However, it’s unlikely that you will qualify for a loan if your business is involved in a high-risk industry like cannabis or adult entertainment.
What other types of financing does HSBC offer?
Alongside its term loans, HSBC has lines of credit and SBA loans.
Lines of credit
Lines of credit can be used for working capital when you need a short-term expense covered. HSBC offers flexible repayment options. However, its variable rate is based on a prime rate set by the HSBC, not the Wall Street Journal — and HSBC doesn’t give an average spread.
HSBC is an SBA-approved lender. However, it doesn’t state what types of SBA loans it offers. So like its term loan and line of credit programs, you will need to reach out to an HSBC representative to find the best option for your business’s specific financial situation.
