Risk Disclosure
The principal protection feature is only applicable if this product is held to maturity.
Investment involves risks. The prices of investment products fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, and may become valueless. Investors should not invest based on this web page alone. Before making any investment decisions, customers must 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 Linked Deposit - Principal Protected Deposit (“FXLD”)
The FXLD is an unlisted investment product and subject to the credit and insolvency risks of the Bank. Its return is limited to the interest payable, which will be dependent on movements in some linked exchange rate. Whilst the possible return may be higher than conventional time deposits, it is normally associated with higher risks. 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. The FXLD is principal-protected but is not the same as directly buying the currencies of the currency pair. It is not protected by the Investor Compensation Fund. If the FXLD is approved by the Bank to be withdrawn before its maturity, the customer may also need to bear the costs involved which may reduce the return and the principal amount of the FXLD he may get back. There is no secondary market for the FXLD and it is not collateralized. The Bank can early terminate the FXLD.

RMB Currency Risk
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.

American Range

Range Bound
American Range Principal Protected Deposit is an FX Linked Deposit that pays:

high interest if the spot exchange rate of the designated Currency Pair trades within a pre-determined range (above the Floor Rate and below the Ceiling Rate) during the entire pre-determined period (“Fixing Period”); or

low interest if the spot exchange rate of the designated Currency Pair trades beyond a pre-determined range (below the Floor Rate or above the Ceiling Rate) at any time during the Fixing Period.


Customer’s View Expect AUD/USD to trade within 0.6805 and 0.8805 during the next 6 months (low volatility of AUD/USD)

Principal Amount AUD100,000
Deposit Period 6 months
Ceiling Rate 0.6805
Floor Rate 0.8805
High Interest Rate 8% per annum
Low Interest Rate 1% per annum

The investment return depends on the AUD/USD spot exchange rate during the Fixing Period:


Scenario Payoff at Maturity
BEST
The exchange rate moves along with Customer's View.
During the entire Fixing Period, AUD/USD trades within 0.6805 and 0.8805 and never touches or goes beyond 0.6805 and 0.8805. Principal + high interest
=AUD100,000 + AUD4,000
=AUD104,000
Worst
The exchange rate moves against Customer's View.
At any time during the Fixing Period, AUD/USD touches or goes beyond 0.6805 and 0.8805. Principal + low interest

If the bank becomes insolvent or defaults on its obligations, the customer may get nothing back and suffer a total loss of the Principal Amount.

In addition to the movement of the linked Currency Pair, if the customer’s home currency is not the Deposit Currency, the customer’s total realized gain or loss (in terms of the home currency) will also depend on the fluctuation of the exchange rate between the Deposit Currency and the customer’s home currency. If the Deposit Currency depreciates against the customer’s home currency, the potential loss arising from such exchange rate movement may offset (or even exceed) the potential return received from the product. To the extreme, if the Deposit Currency becomes valueless on the Maturity Date, then the customer will still suffer total loss (i.e. 100% loss) when the customer converts the maturity proceeds back to the customer’s home currency on the Maturity Date. Conversely, if the Deposit Currency appreciates against the customer’s home currency, the potential profit arising from such exchange rate movement may enhance the customer’s total realized return.
