Financial planning

Make the most of your money, whatever stage of your life

Plan your financial future

In today's fast-moving world, effective wealth management is key to achieving success. But sometimes it can be hard to tell what investment solutions are ideal for you. That's where our financial planning service comes in, you'll get comprehensive investment support to help you on your way.

International wealth expertise

Our Wealth Managers help expats living and working around the world, at all stages of expat life. Many of our Wealth Managers are expats themselves, so we understand how hard expats work for their money, and the sacrifices they and their families have to make.

To benefit from our Financial Planning service, you'll need to open an HSBC Expat Premier bank account.

Get started with a financial review

The way you manage your money now could have a big impact on your future. Our priority is to understand what's going on in your life - and where you'd like to be in 5, 10, or even 50 years. Whether you're looking for a comfortable retirement, to secure the best start in life for your children, or simply want to make the most of your disposable income, we could help you make financial decisions that suit your current needs and future aspirations.

Reviewing your finances with one of our experienced wealth advisers can be the first step in helping you to achieve your goals.

What happens during a financial review?

  • Getting to know you

    We'll look at the complete picture, and discuss everything from your current savings and investments, to financial goals and plans for the future which helps us recommend the right solutions for you.

  • Discovering your options

    We'll discuss the proposals for you which will capture protection and investment solutions, as appropriate. Any investment recommendations will reflect the level of risk you're prepared to take to achieve your financial goals.

  • Discussing your plan

    We'll compile a financial plan with recommendations1, based on the information you've provided. You'll be able to discuss your financial plan and ask any questions you may have at this stage.

  • Taking action

    We'll send our recommendations in writing and arrange a follow up meeting to discuss the content, answering any further questions you may have. If you're happy to go ahead, your Wealth Manager will put your agreed plan into action.

  • Complete and sign documents digitally

    Our digital tool allows you to complete and return documents online, without needing to print and scan them.2

How we continue to support you

Following your initial financial review and setting up your investment portfolio, your Wealth Manager will provide advice support when your needs and circumstances changes. Because they've helped you build your portfolio, they understand your situation and your approach to investing.

Many things can change in an expat's life - promotion, relocation, starting a family, taking early retirement. All these factors have an impact on your financial plans and the way your portfolio should be structured. That's why regular reviews are essential, so we can check your investments are on target. You can call your Wealth Manager whenever you want to discuss your portfolio and check how your investments are performing. You can also review your balances through online banking with our International Investment Centre.

Nominee Service

Your investments will be held in our Nominee3 which is an administration service that streamlines the buying and selling of your investments.

With Nominee you can:

  • apply for investments and transfer assets with minimal paperwork
  • instruct to buy or sell funds via your Wealth Manager or online via our International Investment Centre
  • maintain a single point of contact for your investment transactions
  • consolidate your mutual fund investments for a portfolio view
  • view the value of your portfolio via our International Investment Centre

3The Nominee is an administration service, not an asset management service. Not all countries are covered by the service - and some investments are excluded, such as stock market traded shares/funds, bank deposits and some collective investment schemes. Applications to transfer current or future investments into the service will be evaluated on an individual basis.
