Tom Wolfenden, HSBC UK’s Head of Retail Banking, said: “The new year is a great time to reflect on the previous year, whilst also looking ahead to the next. We can recalibrate our thoughts, reset our priorities and make resolutions. Very many peoples’ finances will have changed in some way over the last year or so, and reviewing your finances could be a good way to spend a couple of hours over Christmas and New Year. It could even make you £150 better off if you switch your current account to our HSBC Advance or Premier current accounts. Switching a current account is easy and our app and our smart money tools will help you keep an eye on your spending and stay on top of your finances during the new year.”
