HSBC may be liable for another $650M+ in Household case
- The $2.46B that HSBC (HBC) must pay to settle a case involving its Household International unit may not be the end of the matter.
- HSBC was told to pay the sum after Household was found to have misled investors about the quality of its loans and to have carried out predatory lending.
- However, the money doesn't account for 25,000 pending claims of over $650M, lawyers for the plaintiffs said.
