Significantly increase your returns by leveraging FX market performance.

Who Should Invest

  • You want to enhance your returns via FX market performance.
  • Losses due to currency fluctuations are acceptable.
  • You prefer a short investment tenure and have no interim liquidity needs.

How to Invest

  • The investor sells an option to the bank, which earns a considerable option premium. This option enables the bank to pay back the principal and yields to maturity either in the principal currency or alternate currency based on a pre-agreed conversion rate.
  • The investor selects a principal currency, an alternate currency and investment tenure. The bank quotes conversion rate and investment return options, which the investor can then choose from.
  • On the fixing date, the bank compares the conversion rate with the relevant market rate to determine whether the principal and yield will be repaid in the principal currency or an alternative.
