The actual amount is subject to the receiving bank and will be set, and taken from your account, up to 7 days after you've confirmed transfer.

Seamless international banking

Your children can open a Premier Bank account in their new country/region, while still living in Singapore.

With an Premier Bank account, they'll receive a debit card, supplementary credit card and cheque book, all before their big move, for stress-free packing. So, they can access their money as soon as they arrive in their new country/region.

And they'll have a dedicated Relationship Manager to support them in their overseas country/region.

One global view and instant free transfers

Like you, they'll be able to see all their HSBC accounts through one single view. And you'll be able to send them instant free transfers with Global Transfers.
