HSBCnet users are customer representatives entitled to perform transactions or enquire information for customers. There are multiple user types in HSBCnet, each with their own responsibilities.
Initial System Administrators are the first of a customer's registered users of HSBCnet and are responsible for setting up access for any additional users (end users or System Administrators). Customers need to identify their Initial System Administrators and have them register online.
Note: Before you begin HSBCnet registration, identify your Initial System Administrators first.
To register as an Initial System Administrator, go to www.hsbcnet.com, click on the Log on/Register button > Register for HSBCnet and complete steps 1 to 4 of the HSBCnet user registration form.
