    "Periferal" foreign currency accounts

    Does anyone know of Hong Kong banks that offer the possibility of setting up bank accounts with currencies other than the usual suspects (SGD, KRW, AUD, NZD etc.). In particular I'm looking for Norweigian Krone (NOK) accounts. An ex-colleague of mine placed his savings in NOK for a while several years ago so I know it is (or has been) possible but I don't know which bank he used. I know Hang Seng and HSBC don't offer this (as I bank with them already).

    To answer my own question, "advanced" use of Google suggested that Bank of Communications and DBS have a broader selection of currencies (including NOK).
