What happens next?

Our representatives are able to resolve most of our customers' concerns. However, if you’re not satisfied with how our representatives resolved your concerns, you can escalate further following steps 2 and 3 below.

Start with an HSBC Representative

We’ll acknowledge your concern and get back to you once our investigation is complete.

We will automatically escalate your case (Step 2) if we haven’t finished addressing your complaint within 14 days.

Escalate if your complaint is not resolved

If you’re not satisfied with how our representative handled your concerns in Step 1, you can escalate further (or ask our representative to escalate on your behalf).

Escalate to HSBC Client Complaints Office

If you’re not satisfied with the resolution after following Step 1 and Step 2, you can escalate further to the HSBC Client Complaints Office.

This office will only investigate once you’ve tried to resolve your concerns through the previous two steps. The Client Complaints Office will review your complaint and provide HSBC’s final decision and an explanation about how and why this decision was reached.
