Why choose a Foreign Currency Term Deposit account?

A Foreign Currency Term Deposit account offers you the certainty of a fixed rate that can be fixed from 30 days to 5 years.

 

There is no maximum Term Deposit amount, however minimum amounts apply. If no re-investment instructions have been received HSBC will auto roll the Term Deposit for the same period, at the prevailing rate for that day.
