banking transfert uk to ch

Good morning, i'm new there and new in Switzerland

I made a transfert from hsbc last week to ubs account, i still havent receive anything.
ubs send me back to uk
hsbc charged me £25 to a do a check and came to me with "you need to call back on wednesday or news"

it is the first time a do an international transfert and i'm very surprise the way i have to pay fee and chase them.

With your own experience, how many day it should take?
PS: we will open a hsbc swiss account as it will be easier to manage.

Many Thanks for advise

If you kick off and complain to HSBC you will usually get your money back. Especially based on the duration it has taken. Complain. They will send you a letter saying sorry, but then give them a call and they will make a token gesture.

I use Currency fair. This is really good. you can hang on till you see the exchange rate you want or transfer immediately. The transfer is quick. Ive only done it CH to UK not the other way, and the delay is from UBS to Currency Fair. Its instant on the UK side.

LLoyds Bank UK charge £9.00 per transfer to a Stirling account in Switzerland with a transfer limit of £100,000.

If you are transferring £ to CHF, then expect to be skinned...
