HSBC fined 10.5m for mis-selling to elderly in care
HSBC has been fined 10.5m by the City watchdog for mis-selling investment bonds to elderly people in care.

Some 2,485 customers of the bank's subsidiary NHFA were advised to invest, in order to fund care costs.

Unsuitable sales of this product were made to 87% of NHFA customers, prompting the largest retail fine to date from the Financial Services Authority (FSA).

The bank estimates that an additional 29.3m in compensation will be paid.
