HSBC experiences?
« on: May 13, 2019, 11:29:34 PM »
Hi everyone!
We just opened up an HSBC account and will call on my next day off to get a UK account.
Has anyone gone with them? Was it an easy financial move?
Thanks in advance!

We already had an HSBC account in the UK so didn’t need to open one from the US.

Our son opened an US HSBC account first but to open an HSBC account in the UK required visiting an HSBC branch to sign paperwork and show id. Since they didn’t have a branch within a 1000 miles of him he waited until he got to the UK.  A friend of mine in Alabama went the same route, and fancied a holiday in New York before he moved back so he  went into a branch there.

I've used HSBC since first moving over in 2013 and have had no issues (and didn't really hit any road bumps with getting the account opened like others have but not sure if that was because maybe there were a few less rules and regs?). Not opened one in the US and tried to move over to the UK though so can't comment on that - sorry.
My, how time flies....
