Things you should know
How it works
- Open an investment account, then use our research tools to help make an informed decision about what to invest and when.
- Once you've invested, you'll see the current value of your investment and be able to track its performance whenever you log on to your online banking.
It's important to consider that the value of investments and any income they generate, may go down as well as up, meaning that you may get back less than what you originally invested.
You don't need to worry about transferring money into a separate investment account. When you are buying a new fund or topping up an existing fund, simply select the current or savings account you'd like us to take the money from.
Our International Investment Centre doesn't offer any investment advice. If you're not sure about investing, read our Financial planning guide.
You can choose from hundreds of open-ended investment companies (OEICs) and unit trust funds. As well as HSBC funds, we also offer funds from a number of other fund providers.
Once you've opened an account, you can use our research tools to help find funds that could meet your financial goals.
Before you buy a fund, you should be aware that fund providers apply an annual management charge.
In addition, the charge for a new investment is 1% of the value of the investment. This applies to:
- a lump sum purchase
- each monthly contribution when setting up regular savings
- a new fund purchase involved when selling and repurchasing
This charge is taken from your account, in addition to the investment value. There's no charge to use the International Investment Centre, and no charge to surrender your investments.
Learn more about our charges in our Investment & Wealth Terms (PDF).
Who can apply?
You will also need to retain the joint bank account throughout your investment. If the joint bank account is closed within the period of holding your joint investments, you will not be able to transact on the investments you hold.

Remember, the value of investments is not guaranteed - you may not get back the amount you invested, and any income received from them can fall as well as rise. This could also result from changes in currency exchange rates, particularly where overseas securities are held or where investments are converted from one currency to another. We always recommend that any investments should be considered as medium to long-term holdings of least 5 years.
