    HSBC is to increase its dividend as strong growth in Hong Kong and other core Asian markets boosted its capital even though annual profit fell short of expectations.

    Europe's largest bank said it made a pretax profit in 2012 that was the equivalent of fifteen point 15.8 billion euros.

    That was down six percent from the previous year.
