LONDON (Reuters) - Europe's biggest bank by assets HSBC <HSBA.L> announced plans on Friday to delist from the Euronext Paris exchange.

HSBC said it had taken the decision after a review of its trading volumes, costs and administrative requirements.

The bank said any delisting was subject to Euronext Paris approval and would have no impact on its operations in France or the rest of Europe.
