It is suited for you if you are indifferent to the two currencies chosen and you are comfortable receiving your money in either the base or the alternate currency.
FX Structured Investment, a type of structured product where the performance is based on its underlying FX currency pair or a basket of currency pairs.
It can be customised according to your risk-return profile and view of the market. If you hold a longer-term view on a specific currency pair or a basket of currency pairs, you can gain exposure through this at your preferred tenor.

Foreign Currency Investments
There are inherent risks involved in any investment, such as foreign exchange risk, sovereign risk and interest rate fluctuations. Adverse foreign exchange rate movements could erase your deposit interest earnings completely, reduce the original capital amount or increase the quantum of loan payment substantially. The value of your redemption amount/returns on deposits at maturity may be less than your principal investment amount on conversion if the prevailing exchange rate moves against your favour. Exchange controls may also apply from time to time to certain foreign currencies that may affect the convertibility or transferability of that currency.
Dual Currency Investment
Dual Currency Investment has risk and investment elements and is not a fixed deposit. This investment product offers premium interest rates as may be agreed between you and United Overseas Bank (Malaysia) Bhd (“UOB Malaysia”) with an embedded option granted by you to UOB Malaysia. In the event that UOB Malaysia exercises the said option, the value of your investment in the Base Currency will be converted into the Alternate Currency, regardless of whether you wish to be paid in this currency at that time. The value of your redemption amount at maturity may be less than your principal investment amount on conversion if the prevailing exchange rate moves against your favour.
Exchange controls may also apply from time to time to certain foreign currencies that may affect the convertibility or transferability of that currency. It is advisable for you to seek advice from a licensed or an exempt financial adviser before making a commitment to purchase the product. In the event that you choose not to have a licensed or an exempt financial adviser, you should consider carefully whether the product is suitable for you in light of your financial needs, investment goals and objectives and risk appetite. UOB Dual Currency Investment is an investment product that requires you to hold the product to maturity with a right given to UOB Malaysia to terminate prematurely upon occurrence of certain Extraordinary Events stipulated in the Dual Currency Investment Facility Agreement. Unless UOB otherwise agrees, the investment amount cannot be withdrawn by you, whether partially or in whole, prior to its maturity. If UOB allows for any early withdrawal, UOB Malaysia shall be entitled to deduct from the investment amount, any loss, costs, charges and/or expenses incurred by UOB Malaysia (including but without limiting to UOB’ Malaysia’s unwinding or termination of its hedging and/or funding position) and such other administrative and other charges as UOB may impose. In such instances, you may receive less than the principal investment amount.
