HSBC to Remain Head Quartered in London

HSBCYou may have been keeping a close eye on the recently unfolding Binary Options related news story in regards to HSBC threatening to leave the UK and basing its Head Office in another country.

The main reason why HSBC decided that a possible relocation elsewhere was perhaps the best move was a potential increase in taxes and levies that would be imposed on this banking giant if they remained in the UK.
