HSBC Sri Lanka has once again being recognised for its digital capabilities by winning the Best Consumer Digital Bank Country Award by Global Finance at the Best Digital Bank Awards 2018. This is the 12th time that HSBC has won this prestigious award.

Currently, most of the Retail Banking transactions are being performed through the Bank’s automated channels including HSBC Online Banking, HSBC EasyPay and ATM network. HSBC’s Online Banking platform is built on world-class technology with high security and equipped to perform a range of banking services such as balances enquiries, online statement viewing, transferring of funds between own or third party accounts to bill payments and management of personal accounts (i.e. cancelling any direct debits, amending standing orders and other). 

These capabilities were further enhanced with the HSBC Mobile Banking App, enabling customers to access their accounts on the go. Through the HSBC Mobile Banking App, HSBC has introduced a Digital Secure Key, Touch ID and Face ID.

These features also allow HSBC customers the convenience of banking from anywhere at any time with peace of mind.
