HSBC is here to help you navigate the unique ecosystem of healthcare in MENAT

Looking to the Middle East

At HSBC, we are ideally-placed to support businesses in the healthcare sector.

We are working with customers across the healthcare ecosystem: pharma/medical manufacturers, distributors, pharmacies and hospital groups. We are supporting your growth and strategic needs: M&A, IPO, bond issuances, financing e.g. for new hospital and manufacturing facilities, acquisitions, capex, working capital and export credit agency backed structures. We also support your everyday banking needs such as liquidity and cash management, employee banking or even partnerships to attract mutual customers.

Healthcare is a burgeoning sector in MENAT and HSBC is at the heart of many initiatives, supporting healthcare groups on their COVID-19 related projects, new investments and IPOs. We would be glad to support you too in your growth.

A collaborative approach

We anticipate greater collaboration between public and private sector across the UAE.
