Secure your loan against your assets
It’s not easy getting a loan in the country where you're an expat if the savings, investments or cash you'd like to use as security are held elsewhere. If you're a Premier customer with a minimum relationship balance of GBP 500,000, you can apply for a loan in a different currency from the assets the loan is secured against.
Choose the currency of your loan
We offer interest only and repayment secured loans in GBP, EUR, USD, and HKD1. A loan could be suitable if you want to avoid converting assets from elsewhere into another currency. Instead, you could leave your assets untouched and secure a loan against them.
You're a British expat in the United States and you'd like to buy a property there, but your savings are in GBP. You don't want to convert your savings as the exchange rate isn't favourable at the moment. To fund the purchase, you could take out a loan in USD that's secured against the savings you have in GBP.
If your salary is paid in USD you could get a repayment loan and make monthly repayments until the loan is paid off. Or if the exchange rate improves, you could convert some of your savings to pay off the loan.
If you're a new or an existing Premier customer and you're aged 18 or over, you can apply for a loan of GBP 50,0002 or more. To be eligible, you must hold HSBC Expat accounts and investments with a minimum relationship balance of GBP 500,0002.
The maximum age at the end of the loan term for a capital repayment plan is 753. For joint applications it's the age of the oldest applicant.
