Must you call, or can you walk into branch? I'm in the states often and rather not play tag over the phone.angel_wing0 wrote: ↑Aug 8th, 2018 1:46 amcall IBC: https://www.hsbc.ca/1/2/personal/bankin ... nt-opening

Yes. Make sure to take advantage of the welcome offer to pick up an extra $700 or so and get referred by a friend for another $200.foreigncontent wrote: ↑Aug 18th, 2018 8:48 amCurious, as the international part would have value to me, so to open an account all I would need is to go to a branch with a $100,000 of investment to put in their direct brokerage, and provided I meet eligibility I should be able to get the associated credit card?

Interesting, thanks. I qualify and hold bank accounts in a a few countries and it works for me now but I'm just wondering if it is worth moving assets around. Maybe I will make a appointment to speak with someone.bend3r wrote: ↑Aug 18th, 2018 5:32 pmBanking is free for most stuff. 5 chequing accounts included
Forex transfers can be instant if you got hsbc accounts in other countries
Forex transfer to banks other than hsbc can have reduced fees
No fx fee on debit card or WE credit card
If you move around a lot, HSBC can transfer your credit histories abroad
They also can help with international mortgages - for example buying a house in UK while you live in canada
And an RM that helps you manage things if needed - mine has been great. Others have had complaints.
Biggest benefit I find with hsbc is that they’re brick and mortar but pretty much everything I need to do including wire transfers can be done online. Last time I visited the bank was last September to open invest direct account.
Invest direct isn’t that good for self service clients. If you just buy and hold stuff - it could work for you. Over the phone they are pretty good however.
