Oh duh, SORRY DurhamLad & Christmas, my mistake...of course it's not a typo, makes total sense: LESS with HSBC, MORE with Transferwise.

Daft, can't think what my addled brain was thinking, got it backwards somehow. (Excuse du jour: allergies. Or: post-lockdown addlement.)

As you were.

We too have HSBC accounts in both countries and use global transfer (when exchange is right) to switch money over... very fast and easy.
Not happy about HSBC's stance in Hong Kong (have supported Chinese govt) but there doesn't seem to be any other bank tailored for expats like us where you can have accounts in both countries, easy transfers, etc etc.....or is there?

Exactly. Sorry for the confusion, but no typo. When I have the 2 screens up showing how many £s I am going to receive for the $s I am going to transfer HSBC will send me a lot less £s than Transferwise.

Thanks. Gotcha (see previous post). My mistake. Is this the "embarrassed" smiley?!

Please don't be embarrassed, I didn't make it absolutely clear.
