Detailed description of the stages of the account opening process*

STAGE I

upon your completing a special questionnaire, we get to know you and your business closer and offer several banks to choose from:

we help you to collect the necessary package of documents required for account opening

we arrange an interview for the director at the bank of your choice (or several banks, because it is better to apply to more than one bank, to increase the chances of opening at least one account) – BUT a very important point to note is the peculiar nature of how Hong Kong banks operate: they may not even respond to the application at all (for example, if you do not offer a deposit straight away on your application, some banks will definitely not reply)

STAGE II

we accompany you to a personal meeting with a banker, or we instruct you in detail about what questions the bankers usually ask and what they expect to hear from you (because, unfortunately, some banks prohibit introducers from attending the meeting)

we prepare you for the interview, going again through the list of necessary documents and accentuating necessary points;

we take care of further interaction with the bank after the interview (for this, when meeting with the banker, you will need to leave him our contact details for communication)

STAGE III

consists in the successful opening of an account when you receive your account details and Internet banking codes. After that, the process can be considered completed.
