Limited Performance Chequing Account | Details | HSBC Canada

HSBC Performance Chequing-Limited

A Low – Cost chequing account for people who make fewer transactions

Simplified day-to-day banking

Everything you need from a chequing account for a monthly fee of just $4.00. Your first 14 transactions are included and monthly statements help you monitor your account activity

Don’t pay for features you don’t use

It doesn’t make sense to pay a higher monthly fee if you don’t make a lot of transactions – or if you don’t want to keep a minimum balance in your chequing account.

Access your funds when you need them

Manage your money with Personal Internet Banking, Telephone Banking, Interac® Direct Payments, pre-authorized and electronic debits, and cheques as required. Your first 14 transactions are included (some exceptions apply. Please refer to our personal service charges brochure for details).

You also have access to all HSBC Bank Canada and THE EXCHANGE®1 network ATMs across Canada. Your first 14 transactions are included.

Monthly Fee Waiver

The monthly fee of $4.00 is waived for youth, students, seniors and Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) beneficiaries1.
