To support the enthusiastic demand for home ownership in Indonesia, especially in the areas of Jakarta and Surabaya, HSBC is customizing its services to help new and established customers realize their financial goals through property investment. Providing innovative mortgage services integrated within its Wealth Management division, HSBC is a support system for upper middle class clients who wish to invest for the long term.
