FTSE LIVE: HSBC banks profit rise as digital overhaul gets underway; Sterling starts week in the doldrums; London stocks flat at the open

HSBC posted an uplift in half-year profits as the bank pushes ahead with a digital strategy implemented by new boss John Flint.  

The FTSE 100 opened flat at 7,600, and Sterling started the week under $1.30. The currency plummeted on Friday after Bank of England governor Mark Carney issued warnings about a ‘no-deal Brexit’.
