Hi I am looking to deposit 85k for myself and 85k British pounds for my wife on the 1 year fixed 4.3% savings account. Could you confirm that you would open an internet account that we can access to see our funds_ I have a total of 500k to invest however cut off at 170k as this is protracted. I ask this question as the posts voice concern that the IT system is archaic, and that you send out in the post proof of payment, sorry! Kind Regards David — John David Simpson

Do you charge for current account banking services if yes. What are these charges — Syed Ali

“My wife & I made 2 almost identical applications to open deposit accounts”

My wife & I made 2 almost identical applications to open deposit accounts.
My wife's application was accepted but HBZ requested additional information for mine.
I supplied the information, twice, followed up by email but no reply.
I tried phoning, but nobody answered the phone.
I have decided that it would be unwise to deposit money with a bank that does not communicate.
