What happens next?

Our representatives are able to resolve most of our customers' concerns. However, if you’re not satisfied with how our representatives resolved your concerns, you can escalate further following steps 2 and 3 below.

Start with an HSBC Representative

We’ll acknowledge your concern and get back to you once our investigation is complete.

HSBC Escalated Complaints team

Contact this team only if you’ve followed Step 1 and you’re not happy with how your concern was handled. 

Where step 1 hasn’t been followed, your inquiry will be directed to the proper department.

The team will investigate and respond to you once their investigation is complete.

Escalate to HSBC Commissioner of Complaints

If you’re not satisfied with the resolution after following Step 1 and Step 2, you may escalate further to the HSBC Commissioner of Complaints.

The Commissioner of Complaints will get back to you with an impartial review of your complaint and HSBC’s final decision.
