 Dual Currency Investment
Want potentially higher returns than fixed deposit? Dual Currency Investment (DCI) can prove more rewarding for you. It is a short-term Currency Linked Structured Investment that offers you the flexibility of selecting

  • the currency pair of your choice
  • tenure
  • target conversion rate
for guaranteed enhanced returns upon maturity.

Here's how DCI works:
Assuming you place RM300,000 as your base currency in DCI for 30 days and choose AUD as the alternate currency. If the spot rate for AUD/MYR is 3.2500 and your target conversion rate is 3.2400, you will receive an enhanced return of 8% per annum upon maturity
Scenario 1*
 
AUD/MYR is 3.2450
 
(above target conversion rate)
 
You will receive your principal and enhanced return in MYR = RM300,000 + RM1,972.60
Scenario 2*
 
AUD/MYR is 3.2350

(below target conversion rate)
 
You will receive your principal in AUD (converted at the target conversion rate) and enhanced return in MYR = AUD92,592.59 + RM1,972.60
