Risk Disclosure

Investment involves risks. The prices of investment products fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, and may become valueless. Investors should not invest based on this website alone. Before making any investment decisions, customers should consult their own independent financial advisors and read the relevant offering documents for further details including the risk factors in order to ensure that they fully understand the risks associated with the investment products.

FX options are not principal-protected and are unlisted. There may not be an active or liquid secondary market. They are subject to the credit and insolvency risks of the Bank. If the Bank becomes insolvent or defaults on its obligations under this product, customers can only claim as an unsecured creditor of the Bank. Investing in FX options is not the same as investing in the reference currencies. FX options are not covered by the Investor Compensation Fund and may be early terminated by the Bank. The risk of loss in FX option trading can be substantial. Customers may sustain losses in excess of their initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. A customer may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, the customer’s position may be liquidated. The customer will remain liable for any resulting deficit in the customer’s account. Customers should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in light of their own financial position and investment objectives. The maximum potential loss for an option seller is theoretically unlimited if the market movement is unfavorable to his position. Exchange rates are affected by a wide range of factors, including international finance, economics, politics, central banks and other bodies intervention and natural events, and may rise or fall rapidly.

RMB is subject to the PRC government's control (for example, exchange restrictions). Besides, there is no guarantee that RMB will not depreciate. If customers convert Hong Kong Dollar or any other currency into RMB so as to invest in RMB denominated investment products and subsequently convert the RMB redemption proceeds back into Hong Kong Dollar or any other currency, you may suffer a loss if RMB depreciates against Hong Kong Dollar or other currency.

Exchange controls or other monetary measures may be imposed by a government, sometimes with little or no warning. Such measures may have a significant effect on the convertibility or transferability of a currency and may have unexpected consequences for a FX Transaction that the Customer is holding.

Please refer to the risk disclosures in the specific documentation of these products before making a decision to invest using margin or leverage.
