#1 HSBC tests cash machines in Athens for drachmas06-03-2012, 06:58 PMHSBC has tested its cash machines in Greece to check whether they could cope with the reintroduction of the drachma if the country drops out of the euro.
It is the clearest sign yet that the international financial sector believes Greece is on the brink of quitting the single currency and returning to its former currency.
An HSBC spokesman said: ‘Like all banks, we have been working with regulators to undertake preparatory work at multiple levels in the event of a sovereign default, an exit from the euro, or any other eventuality.’
