hi everyone, I’m about to move to Taiwan next month from the US, and I’m planning to open a HSBC Direct Taiwan savings account once I’m there. I read the forum threads on this bank but couldn’t quite make out these details I want to know.
My questions are:
is there a better way, other than wiring, to move USD from my HSBC Direct US savings account to the Taiwan savings account?
is 1.5% interest (offered by HSBC Direct Taiwan) the market leader in the island?
what is a good checking account in Taiwan with no or low monthly fees? I don’t care about interest in this account.
thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.
