Not a deposit
"Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) Limited 3 Years SGD Step Up Fixed Rate Structured Deposit Series 18 is a Structured Deposit and not a traditional deposit and it does not qualify as an insured deposit under the Singapore Deposit Insurance and Policy Owner’s Protection Schemes Act 2012. Unlike traditional deposits, Structured Deposits have an investment element and returns may vary.

Return of principal only at maturity
Because the Structured Deposit is structured with the objective of returning your initial investment amount only at maturity, repayment of your initial investment amount does not apply if you terminate the Structured Deposit prior to maturity. You may potentially lose the principal sum invested if the investment is not held to maturity. There is no unconditional guarantee of repayment as repayment is subject to the creditworthiness of the SCBSL i.e. if SCBSL defaults, you may lose your initial investment amount.

Prior to maturity, SCBSL may agree to you withdrawing or terminating the Structured Deposit but SCBSL is under no obligation to do so. In calculating a termination price, SCBSL will factor in the costs of terminating hedging and funding arrangements and other costs relating to the Structured Deposit which may result in a termination price that is substantially below the amount of your initial investment amount.
