Risks relating to Renminbi: If Currency-Linked Capital Protected Investment Deposit involves CNY, the relevant exchange rate(s) or level(s) of the relevant currency pair will be quoted in offshore Renminbi against alternate currency. While both onshore Renminbi and offshore Renminbi are the same currency, they are traded in different and separate markets operating under different regulations and independent liquidity pool. Onshore Renminbi and offshore Renminbi are currently quoted in different markets with different exchange rates, whereby their exchange rate movements may not be in the same direction or magnitude. The offshore Renminbi exchange rate may deviate significantly from the onshore Renminbi exchange rate. You should also note that Renminbi is currently not freely convertible, the value of Renminbi 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 Renminbi and foreign currencies), which may adversely affect your investment return under the Currency-Linked Capital Protected Investment Deposit when you convert CNY into your home currency. Renminbi is subject to foreign exchange control by the PRC government and thus investors investing in Currency-Linked Investment Deposit involving Renminbi are subject to the currency risk of Renminbi.
