Household International PAC contributions continue at HSBC

How is the HSBC political action comittee doing these days? Do you remember when John Bond was in charge at HSBC, when Bond claimed HSBC did not try to influence politics in any way? That doing so was against HSBC policy?

At that time William Aldinger was in charge of HSBC North America and HSBC Finance. H-PAC was the original name of Household International’s PAC. Aldinger’s PAC actions are still ongoing long after both men disappeared from HSBC:
