This is a rant.
I’ve dealt with quite a few (bad) banks over the course of my life across countries and businesses.
And I think HSBC is one of the worst.
For various reasons. But mostly for being stuck in another century.
And you’d expect a tiny (Belgian) bank to be horrible. Not one of the biggest banks in the world with branches in almost every country of the world.
But no. HSBC pretty much tops it.
I have tons of other examples how and why HSBC failed me, and by the end of the year I think it’s time to part ways.
