Currency Linked Investment

Earn attractive returns with a Currency Linked Investment that allows you to receive your principal amount and yield maturity in the base currency or an alternative currency of your choice.


  • Freedom to determine the principal and alternative currencies, time periods and the desired level of conversion
  • Provides potentially higher yields than traditional banking products
  • Can be used as a tool to convert one currency into another based on the expected price level
  • Flexible investment amount with a minimum of USD 20,000 or equivalent in other foreign currencies
  • Short-term investments ranging from one week to six months1

How it works

Step One:Determine the base currency you want to invest in
Step Two:Choose an alternative currency that you prefer to leverage on
Step Three:Select the agreed conversion level (strike price) at the time of placement

How to apply

  • Contact your Treasures Relationship Manager or visit any of our branches
  • Call our DBSI Customer Centre at 1 500 327 / 69 327 (via mobile phone)


At maturity, you will receive the principal and yield in either the base currency or the alternate currency, depending on the movement of underlying currency pair.

If upon maturity of the CLI, you receives the principal amount in the alternative currency and converts the amount back to the base currency at the time when the base currency is continuing to appreciate against the alternate currency, the investor is likely to receive substantially less than the original amount invested.
