You can also execute independently on HSBC Evolve, our digital execution platform, which is available 24 hours a day, 5.5 days a week.

Access to local expertise

Leverage our global network

Our Markets business is one of the largest of its kind, active in more than 60 countries and territories worldwide. This gives us a unique position to offer presence and knowledge to help you spot international opportunities. We have a special focus on connecting clients to Emerging Markets — something we are always open to exploring with you.

Having a Foreign Currency Account means I can control the FX conversion and exposure myself. I find it seamless working with the HSBC FX Team and using the Evolve online platform. The people provide an excellent service and the Evolve platform is excellent – I can’t praise their overall FX service enough.
