Capital Protected Investment Deposit(CPI) Risk Disclosure
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 higher payout on the deposit less the principal amount or the sum of the coupons of the deposits, when exchange rate of currency pair at fixing 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.


Renminbi Related Products Risk Disclosure
  • CPI (if denominated in renminbi) will be denominated and settled in renminbi deliverable in Hong Kong, which is different from that of renminbi deliverable in Mainland China.
