HSBC has provided a start-of-the-week boost to the FTSE 100 as it continued last week's gains.
The bank was up 4.3% in early trading on Monday morning, having risen 2.9% on Friday after revealing that it was considering moving its headquarters out of London, and even the UK.
Standard Chartered, one of HSBC's main rival as a UK bank with a strong foothold in Asia, saw its share price rise by 3.2%.
Overall, the FTSE 100 was up slightly, by 0.47% to 7,104.17.
