Important notices

  • Foreign currency deposit

    Foreign currency deposit

    Where applicable, the Bank will pay interest at its prevailing interest rate for the relevant account calculated on daily balances (excluding late cheque deposits). Interest will be credited at such intervals as determined solely by the Bank from time to time. No interest will be paid if the daily balance falls below the prescribed minimum as may be determined by the Bank from time to time for that account.

    Foreign currency investments or deposits are subject to inherent exchange rate fluctuations that may provide opportunities and risks. Earnings on foreign currency investments or deposits would be dependent on the exchange rates prevalent at the time of their maturity if any conversion takes place. Exchange controls may be applicable from time to time to certain foreign currencies. You should therefore determine whether any foreign currency investment is suitable for you in the light of your investment objectives, financial means and risk profile. Any pre-termination costs will be deducted from your deposit.
