The FX App built for your expat life

As an expat you’re always on the move, and managing foreign currencies is part of your daily life. Our HSBC Expat FX App, designed specifically for our customers, is here to help.

The App gives you the smart tools and insights to make more informed FX decisions. It also acts as a convenient hub for all of your HSBC bank accounts – wherever they are. It's easy to convert currencies for paying local bills and other existing commitments, such as university fees.

If you'd like to convert your currency at a specific rate, you can set up a Limit Order1 which will automatically convert your chosen amount once the desired rate is met. There are even live Market Insights to help you track your chosen currencies.
