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.
  • Additional risks are disclosed in the Risk Disclosure section. Please refer to it for details.
