Risk Disclosure

Foreign Exchange Risk Disclosure

  • Currency conversion risk - the value of your foreign currency and RMB deposit will be subject to the risk of exchange rate fluctuation. If you choose to convert your foreign currency and RMB deposit to other currencies at an exchange rate that is less favourable than the exchange rate in which you made your original conversion to foreign currency and RMB deposit, you may suffer loss in principal.

Risk of trading in leveraged foreign exchange contracts

  • The risk of loss in leveraged foreign exchange trading can be substantial. You may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. 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.

  • Risks relating to RMB - Margin FX Trading Contract is denominated in offshore RMB rates as traded in Hong Kong. CNH is different from that of RMB traded in Mainland China. You should note that the value of RMB against other foreign currencies fluctuates and will be affected by, amongst other things, the PRC government's control (for example, the PRC government regulates conversion between RMB and foreign currencies), which may adversely affect your return under this product. The value of your investment will be subject to the risk of exchange rate fluctuation.

Renminbi related products Risk Disclosure

  • If the deposit currency and/or linked currency is not your home currency, you may make a gain or loss due to exchange rate fluctuations.
  • RMB 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.
  • In general, RMB equity products are exposed to the usual kind of default risks that might be associated with equity products denominated in other currencies.
  • CPI (if denominated in RMB) will be denominated and settled in RMB deliverable in Hong Kong, which is different from that of RMB deliverable in Mainland China.
