HSBC Dual Currency Investment

Gain potentially higher returns up to 18.5% p.a.1 with dual currency investment.

More opportunities to potentially maximise your returns

HSBC’s Dual Currency Investment offers up to 41 currency pairings (as of 2nd January 2019) with real time pricing – giving you even more opportunities to maximise your investment potentials.

You can take advantage of the exchange rate and gold pricing movements to gain potentially higher returns compared to ordinary fixed deposits. Besides, you have the flexibility to choose the currency pairing (base and linked currencies), tenure (ranging from 1 week to 3 months) and the conversion rate you feel most comfortable with.

What’s more, earn potentially higher returns when we pay your investment amount together with investment returns at maturity, which may either be in the base or linked currency depending on the exchange rate movements in respect of the currency pair.

If you use foreign currency regularly for your child’s educational expenses overseas or business interests abroad, Dual Currency Investment may be right for you.
