Online fund platform 

Research, buy, sell and switch investments online with our Global Investment Centre.

Research, buy, sell and switch investments

Our Global Investment Centre is our online fund platform that's designed for more confident investors, as you can make your own decisions.

Explore our entire range of funds from HSBC and other leading fund managers. And, use a handy research tool to compare up to 5 funds.

New to investing? Our ready-made portfolios could be more suitable if you're getting to grips with investing. 

Be sure to also have some money saved for emergencies – ideally 3-6 months of living expenses. That way you won't need to sell your investment to cover any unexpected costs. Remember, the value of investments can go up and down, so you may not get back what you invest. Eligibility criteria and fees apply.

Investment goals

Discover a smart way to invest and track your long-term goals in the app. Investing carries risk – so you could get back less than you invest.
