U.S. Dollar High Rate Savings Account

A high rate savings account with flexibility and benefits

A convenient way to save and manage your U.S. Dollars

If you travel to the United States or need to make transactions in U.S. dollars, you'll appreciate having funds readily available. Plus, you can purchase U.S. dollars whenever rates are favourable and keep them in your account until you need them – reducing the need to exchange funds when it may not be as financially advantageous.


You can transfer money between your other HSBC accounts through Online Banking, Telephone Banking and in-branch.


You don’t pay a monthly administration fee, so your savings work harder. And no minimum balance means even a little can grow a lot.
