HSBC extends JLL’s global real estate facilities management assignment to 2021

Early renewal of largest outsourcing contract demonstrates value of integrated facilities management services

​​​​​​Banking and financial services firm HSBC has extended the assignment for JLL (NYSE:JLL) to provide facilities management services across HSBC's 55 million-square-foot global real estate portfolio for an additional three years beyond the original five-year term.  JLL will remain HSBC's global provider until 2021.

The extension to this agreement, the largest global facilities management outsourcing contract in the financial services industry, allows both parties to build on the transformation that has taken place since 2013 and to deliver further savings.  JLL's global approach has provided consistent service delivery and global visibility of cost, compliance, and performance.  A key factor in achieving these results is the consolidation from 1,300 facilities management (FM) suppliers to one, JLL, covering 97% of the Bank's portfolio. 

"We've worked in partnership with HSBC to improve service, lower risk, and reduce costs," said Bill Thummel, Global Account Director.  "Employees' satisfaction with the service provided has increased steadily over the past two years, the management and control of key risks has been significantly enhanced, and sustainable savings created for the Bank are in excess of the initial target of USD50m."

​"We are able to commit to saving HSBC more money because we can see the value of the data we have collected and the tools we have developed," Thummel added.  "This data will help us deliver more efficiently and effectively."

“We’re delighted to be further strengthening our global partnership,” said Jordi Martin, CEO Corporate Solutions, Asia Pacific, JLL. “As a team, we look forward to continuing the journey with HSBC both in Asia Pacific and across the globe, delivering integrated facilities management to their banking platform.”​
