Timothy Yu - Founder of tutoring app Snapask

HSBC customer since 2008

Building a personalised learning journey for every student has always been the mission and goal of my business. With mobile technology, learning becomes even more effective without time and geographical boundaries. Now that my business has expanded its footprint globally, overseas property investment became an apparent opportunity. Not only does it fulfil my business needs in the short-run, it also paves the way to our international presence. With the support of HSBC Premier, I am able to manage my investments flexibly here in Hong Kong despite being pressed for time, as I have a reliable partner along the way that makes everything possible.
