With mobile banking users to grow 2 billion large this year and expected to reach 3 billion by 2021, it’s no wonder HSBC Bank Malaysia is stepping up its banking innovation this year by introducing its newly improved HSBC/HSBC Amanah Online Banking and HSBC Malaysia Mobile Banking app.
Aiming to provide a simpler, easier, and faster banking experience, here’s how HSBC Bank Malaysia is designing its banking experience for the convenience of fellow Malaysians.

The HSBC Malaysia app allows you to view, transfer, and manage all your financial matters at your fingertips. But besides the usual features allowing users to save their favourite beneficiaries for future transactions, Instant Transfer, Bill Payment via JomPAY, paying for groceries using DuitNow QR – what makes HSBC Malaysia app different from the others?
You Can Remit Money Both Locally & Globally In Just 6 Seconds
Staying true to its tagline Banking Anywhere, HSBC Bank Malaysia’s Global View & Global Transfer (GVGT) and Global Transfer for Family & Friends (GTFF) features will truly benefit frequent travellers and those regularly remit money to family and friends overseas. The best part? It only takes 6 seconds!
As its name suggests, GVGT allows you to move your money between your local and overseas account (for example, Hong Kong) without having to log on to your separate off-shore account. Besides that, you can also easily view and manage your funds with HSBC Online Banking.
Meanwhile, GFTT lets you transfer funds to your family and/or friends overseas. For example, transferring funds to your children who are studying overseas or if you’re the one who’s working overseas, you can easily send money to your family at home.
But what about the applicable Foreign Exchange (FX) rate when you transfer money across the globe? HSBC has got you covered with its access to real-time FX rates where you can get real-time quotes whenever you exchange foreign currency using HSBC Online Banking or HSBC Malaysia app.
