HSBC Kinetic combines our extensive banking expertise and infrastructure with an innovative approach to offer the best possible business banking experience for customers at a very competitive price point.”

The application has integration with other small business finance solutions including accounting software from providers such as Xero, QuickBooks, and Sage. The Kinetic account also comes with the Bank’s first vertical debit card. The app has been build on the Google Cloud platform and relies on HSBC UK security features.

Nadya Hijazi, Global Head of Digital Business Banking Channels said, “HSBC Kinetic is already helping thousands of small businesses across the UK transform the way they do business. More than just a bank account, HSBC Kinetic is a truly mobile-first banking service packed with features, useful insights, in-app customer support and offers all of the reassurances associated with being a part of a large bank that is able to support businesses at every stage of their growth.

“But we’re not done yet, in the coming months we’ll be introducing more features including a small business loan and International Payments. As the needs of small businesses evolve, we’ll continue to help them through HSBC Kinetic to create and support the next generation of businesses.”
