hsbc ranks are inflated compared to the industry average. a band 7 is really just a analyst elsewhere. band 6 are considered as associates, some places even deem them only senior analysts.

word to the wise, for band 7 & 8, your pay package is spread across 13 months, not 12. This comes in the form of a guaranteed AWS. so your monthly paycheque will appear lesser, but the guaranteed AWS pays out in December, or pro-rated if you leave before that.
I can confirm HSBC band/rank is definitely more inflated. I am currently an AVP in DBS and was recently approached by HSBC for a SVP role. At first I thought they was an error and double check with their recruiter, but they confirm back that my experience and current pay match what they are looking for.
