Renminbi Bonds / Certificates of Deposit

Bonds / Certificates of Deposit (CD) can deliver a relatively stable and predictable stream of income and potentially deliver a better financial return than cash.

You can spread your risk by investing in bonds and diversifying your portfolio.

Important Risk Warning

  • Bonds are an investment product. The investment decision is yours but you should not invest in bonds unless the intermediary who sells it to you has explained to you that the product is suitable for you having regard to your financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives.
  • Bonds / Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are not equivalent to time deposits.
  • CDs are not protected deposits, and they are NOT protected by the Deposit Protection Scheme in Hong Kong.
  • Issuer's Risk - you rely on the issuer's creditworthiness. Bonds/CDs are subject to both the actual and perceived measures of creditworthiness of the issuer. There is no assurance of protection against a default by the issuer in respect of the repayment obligations. In the worst case scenario (e.g. insolvency of the issuer), you might not be able to recover the principal and coupon, if applicable, and the potential maximum loss could be 100% of invested amount and no coupon received.

Risk Disclosure

  • Bonds and CD are mainly for medium to long term investment, not for short term speculation. You should be prepared to invest your funds in Bonds/CD for the full investment tenor; you could lose part or all of your investment if you choose to sell Bonds/CD prior to maturity.
  • It is the issuer to pay interest and repay principal of Bonds/CD. If the issuer defaults, the holder of Bonds/CD may not be able to receive back the interest and principal. The holder of Bonds/CD bears the credit risk of the issuer and has no recourse to HSBC unless HSBC is the issuer itself.
  • Indicative price of Bonds/CD are available and Bond/CD price do fluctuate when market changes. Factors affecting market price of bonds/CD include, and are not limited to, fluctuations in Interest Rates, Credit Spreads, and Liquidity Premiums. The fluctuation in yield generally has a greater effect on prices of longer tenor Bonds/CD. There is an inherent risk that losses may be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling Bonds/CD.
  • If you wish to sell Bonds/CDs, HSBC may repurchase it based on the prevailing market price under normal market circumstances, but the selling price may differ from the original buying price due to changes in market conditions.
  • There may be exchange rate risks if you choose to convert payments made on Bonds/CD to your home currency.
  • The secondary market for Bonds/CD may not provide significant liquidity or may trade at prices based on the prevailing market conditions and may not be in line with the expectations of holders of Bonds/CD.
  • If Bonds/CD are early redeemed, you may not be able to enjoy the same rates of return when you re-invest the funds in other investments.

For renminbi debt instruments

  • Renminbi debt instruments are subject to interest rate fluctuations, which may adversely affect the return and performance of the renminbi products.
  • Renminbi products may suffer significant losses in liquidating the underlying investments if such investments do not have an active secondary market and their prices have large bid/offer spreads.
  • You could lose part or all of your investment if you choose to sell you renminbi bonds prior to maturity.

Renminbi Unit Trusts

By pooling your investments in a fund you can diversify your investments in both renminbi onshore and offshore markets.

You can invest a lump sum or contribute monthly using the Unit Trust Monthly Investment Plan (UTMIP).

Important Risk Warning

  • Unit Trusts (UT) are investment products and some may involve derivatives. The investment decision is yours but you should not invest unless the intermediary who sells it to you has explained to you that the product is suitable for you having regard to your financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives.
  • UT is not equivalent to time deposits.
  • Investors should not make investment decisions based on this material alone.
  • In the worst case scenario, the value of the UT may be worth substantially less than the original amount you have invested (and in an extreme case could be worth nothing).
  • Investment involves risk. Please refer to the offering documents of the respective funds for details, including risk factors.

  • Credit risk of the Bank - CPI is not secured by any collateral. When you invest in this product, you will be relying on the Bank's creditworthiness. If the Bank becomes insolvent or defaults on its obligations under this product, you can only claim as an unsecured creditor of the Bank. In the worst case, you could suffer a total loss of your deposit amount.
  • Currency risk - If the deposit currency is not your home currency, and you choose to convert it back to your home currency upon maturity, you may make a gain or loss due to exchange rate fluctuations.
  • Risk of early termination by the Bank - The Bank shall have the discretion to uplift a Deposit or any part thereof prior to the Maturity Date (subject to the deduction of such break costs or the addition of such proportion of the return or redemption amount, which may result in a figure less than the original principal amount of the Deposit) if it determines, in its sole discretion, that this is necessary or appropriate to protect any right of the Bank to combine accounts or set-off, or any security interest, or to protect the Customer's interests.
  • Market risk - The return of CPI will depend upon the exchange rates of currency pair against trigger rate at the fixing time on the fixing date. Movements in exchange rates can be unpredictable, sudden and drastic, and affected by complex political and economic factors. You must be prepared to take the risk of earning the lower payout/no return (if exchange rate performs against expectation) on the money invested.
  • Derivatives risk - CPI is embedded with FX option(s). Option transactions involve risks. If the exchange rate of the currency pair performs against expectation at the fixing time on the fixing dates, you can only earn zero / the minimum payout of the structure.
  • Limited potential gain - The maximum potential gain is limited to the sum of the coupons on the deposit, when exchange rate of currency pair at fixing time on the fixing dates moves in line with your anticipated direction.
  • Not the same as buying the linked currency - Investing in CPI is not the same as buying the linked currency directly.
  • Liquidity risk - CPI is designed to be held until maturity. You do not have a right to request early termination of this product before maturity. Under special circumstances, the Bank has the right to accept your early redemption request at its sole discretion and on a case by case basis. The Bank will provide an indication of the redemption price upon such request. Your return upon such early redemption will likely be lower than that if the deposit were held until maturity and may be negative.

You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
