Dural Currency Investment (“DCI”) is a non-capital protected investment product with floating returns. You may suffer significant loss of principal due to market fluctuation. Dual Currency Investment is not deposit product. The Bank does not provide any guarantee or promise on principal protection or investment return of the product. Structured Deposit is not a normal deposit, but rather is an investment which involves investment risks. You should act prudently in making the investment decision.

  • Return and Principal Risk: You must recognise the possibility of loss caused by exchange rate fluctuation. Such loss may offset the investment return earned on the investment and may even result in losses in the principal amount of the investment. If you choose Dual Currency Investment, under circumstance of extreme exchange rate fluctuation, the loss may even be the whole principal. 
  • No Early Redemption by Investors: You are not allowed to redeem all or part of the Dual Currency Investment prior to maturity (inclusive). Please ensure you have made adequate provision for emergency cash needs.
  • Foreign Exchange Risk: If the investment currency or the linked currency is not your base currency, and you choose to convert the investment proceeds back to your base currency at maturity, your returns could be affected negatively or positively due to exchange fluctuations. If you have to exchange from other currencies into the investment currency for the purpose of wealth management, there is also foreign exchange risk in this as well.
