How does DCI work?

Step 1

Choose your preferred investment currency and alternate currency

Step 2

Decide on your investment tenure of either 1 week, 2 weeks or 1 month

Step 3

Decide your investment amount (minimum MYR250,000)*

Step 4

Decide on your preferred returns or FX conversion rate.

*For Preferred customers with HNWI (High Networth Individual) declaration, the investment amount can be a minimum of MYR100,000.

HNWI - For Individual Networth (Total Assets – Total Liabilities) exceed RM 3mil (or its equivalent in foreign currencies)

HNWI - For Corporate Networth (Total Assets – Total Liabilities) exceed RM 10mil (or its equivalent in foreign currencies) based on last audited accounts

Example

Assuming that an investor invests MYR250,000 in a 1-month DCI, with MYR as the investment currency and AUD as the alternate currency. Investment currency MYR
Alternate currency AUD
Investment amount MYR250,000
Tenure 1 month
Investment returns 13.70%p.a.
Conversion rate (AUD/MYR) 3.1000

On the fixing date, the Bank will advise you on the repayment currency as to whether it will be in the investment currency or alternate currency.

Scenario 1

If the conversion rate (3.1000) is lower than the prevailing spot rate of 3.1300, AUD has strengthened against MYR.

Investor will receive principal and interest in MYR.
Principal MYR250,000
Interest MYR250,000 x 13.70% p.a. x 31/365 = MYR2,908.90
Principal + Interest MYR252,908.90

Scenario 2

If the conversion rate (3.1000) ishigher than the prevailing spot rate of 3.0600, AUD has weakened against MYR.

Investor will receive principal and interest in AUD.

Principal MYR250,000
Interest MYR250,000 x 13.70% p.a. x 31/365 = MYR2,908.90
Principal + Interest MYR252,908.90/3.1000 = AUD81,583.52

Please note that an immediate conversion back to MYR may result in loss of Investment Principal as follows:

Principal Conversion AUD81,583.52 X 3.0600 = MYR249,645.57 (Loss of MYR 354.43)

What are your options if your initial DCI is converted into the alternate currency?
If your investment currency is in MYR and it is converted into AUD upon fixing, you may consider the following options:

1.     Reinvest into a DCI, with AUD as your investment currency and MYR as the alternate currency to potentially earn higher yield on your investment and conversion back into MYR.

2.     Transfer the funds to Australia for your personal use (e.g. property investment or children’s education).

3.     Place your AUD into our Foreign Currency Fixed Deposit (FCFD) account while waiting for a reinvestment opportunity with DCI or convert the funds back into MYR with a potential opportunity of earning foreign exchange gains.

Upon maturity, investors are assured of the enhanced yield returns. The scenarios and options given above are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent any possible outcomes or actual returns.
