• Frontline Analytics - Provide timely, precise and data-drive insights to our front-line to deepen our customer relationships, release capacity and support growth, leveraging the large wealth of HSBC data and tapping into external data sources
• Frontline Experience - Identify the required up-/re-skilling of the frontline to meet client expectations
