Full service

Very full service - I have a sizeable sterling deposit, which is doing well in terms of FX, but the interest rate is derisory. So full service.

Competitive rate for 5 month terms

HSBC are extremely efficient in the way they operate the account. Their rate is competitive in respect of the length of the term. I wish they would offer better rates on longer terms.

The interest rates offered are the lowest around, there is clearly no attempt to even compete. When I called up to inquire about the rates while the consultant was friendly, she instead tried to sell me a high interest account without listening to my needs. Because HSBC is still a small bank in Australia there are limited branches which makes it much more trouble for the customer in terms of organising forms to be mailed or faxed (can you believe they don't allow you to email anything in!) and constant phone calls to chase things up!

The HSBC term deposit interest rate is not competitive at all. They should do some research to see what other banks offer and offer a better rate.
