Features and benefits
Gain the potential to benefit from your view on future currency movements with a Dual Currency Account (DCA):
The ability to pair currencies is what sets the DCA apart from traditional accounts, as it allows you the potential to earn higher returns.
You should be comfortable with holding either of the paired currencies at maturity, and also be willing to accept the risk of loss of principal in exchange for the possibility of an enhanced total return.
The interest rate you will earn on your Dual Currency Account (DCA) investment is primarily determined by four factors set at your discretion:
If your expectation of future currency movements is correct, and the base currency is weaker than the alternate currency at maturity, your investment will remain in the base currency at maturity. If the base currency is stronger than the alternate currency at maturity, your investment will automatically convert to the alternate currency.
