HSBC completes rebranding

HSBC completed its rebranding of Midland Bank branches on Sunday with the last of the new signs erected at the St Paul&#39s Churchyard London Branch.


HSBC is now the marketing name for Midland Bank and subject to regulatory approval, it is set to become HSBC Bank later this year.


The changes follow the company&#39s decision last year to market itself as a single global brand under the HSBC banner.


The HSBC group bought Midland Bank in 1992.
