Key considerations

Global Investment Centre doesn’t offer any investment advice. This means we don't give advice on trading shares and we are not required to assess the suitability of this product for you. If you’re not sure about investing, please seek financial advice.

Bear in mind that the value of investments and any income they generate, can go down as well as up, meaning you may get back less than what you invest. And investments should be considered as a medium to long-term commitment. This means you should be prepared to hold them for at least 5 years.

You can apply for Global Investment Centre if you’re:

  • an HSBC current and/or savings account customer (excludes Online Bonus Saver and Fixed Rate Saver)
  • a UK resident with a permanent UK residential address
  • aged 18 or over

Please note, accounts cannot be held in joint names. If you’d like to invest with another person, or to make regular contributions rather than investing a lump sum, please call the number below to discuss your options.

This service is available to personal account customers only. Investing via a business account or any other non-personal account is not permitted.
