British Pound High Rate Savings Account

If you travel to the U.K. or need to make transactions in British Pounds, you’ll appreciate having funds readily available. Plus, you can purchase British Pounds 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.
