HSBC opens 2nd premier centre

The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) Ltd in Bangladesh yesterday opened its second premier centre in the bank's Dhanmondi premises.

Steve Banner, chief executive officer (CEO) of HSBC Bangladesh, formally inaugurated the centre.

HSBC premier centres offer a wide range of additional services that include a preferential tariff structure, access to the exclusive premier lounge with reserved car parking facilities and access to HSBC premier centre globally.

HSBC premier customers can receive a higher ATM (automatic teller machine) limit of Tk 100,000 a day. The customers can also get some free services including commission free encashment of HSBC issued traveler's cheques, free foreign exchange services, and free endorsement of foreign currency for the customer and customer spouse.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, HSBC CEO said premier customers receive the same levels of exceptional service at all HSBC premier centres throughout the world.

Earlier, HSBC Bangladesh has opened its first premier centres at the bank's Gulshan office in 2005.
