Never lose a bank statement

Tired of misplacing your paperwork? Or are your financial files fit to burst? Switch to online statements and you'll never have to file your bank statements again. Once you opt-in, you can quickly and securely access digital copies of your statements any time.

Digital bank statements are in the same format as hardcopies. The only thing that changes is the way you receive them. And if you ever need a paper copy of a statement, you can give us a call or visit us at your local branch to request one.

Online banking security

Your safety is paramount to us. Our online banking service is protected by industry-leading security technologies, providing the strongest defence against unauthorised access. We offer two log-on options for your convenience.

Passwords

This allows you to log on with a user name and password. When you log on with passwords, you can carry out simple day-to-day banking tasks.

Secure Key

This is an electronic portable security device which adds an extra layer of security to online banking. When you log on with the device, you get access to the full online banking service.

Get started with online banking

 

Registering for online banking is easy and only takes a few minutes.

All you need is:

  • an active HSBC Expat account
  • your 10-digit Personal Banking Number (PBN)
  • your 6-digit Direct Banking PIN
  • an HSBC Expat Secure Key.

You'll find your PBN on the welcome letter (or email) we sent when you opened your account with us. We also posted your Direct Banking PIN and Secure Key to you separately in two other envelopes. As part of the registration process, you will need to accept our Online Banking Terms and Conditions. You can download a copy of our Online Banking Terms and Conditions from Forms and downloads.

Before you register, we strongly recommend that you install Trusteer Rapport security software. Rapport will lock down the connection between your internet browser and HSBC, preventing any malicious software from monitoring what you type. Rapport is designed to complement your existing anti-virus software.
