The preliminary settlement of HSBC’s 2005-2007 bond gimmicks is less than other similar settlements as Royal Bank of Scotland’s $4.9 bln or Barclays’ $2 bln.

The settlement information became known after the bank reported a jump in profits of 4.6% in the first six months before tax, which made up $10.7 bln, coming past several years of reorganization.
