Banks operating in different countries can also be preferred to open an account. You may not even need to open an account at all. For example, if you have a bank account with HSBC in your country, you can withdraw money from HSBC in the UK with low commission. Of course, this is an example. So you need to consult both HSBC in your country and HSBC UK to find out the right thing.
