    Baiduri Twin Currency Deposit is a foreign exchange linked deposit that can meet your foreign currency needs while offering the potential for greater interest than a traditional fixed deposit.

    Whether you frequently travel for business, have children studying abroad, or are simply interested in diversifying your investments with foreign currency, Baiduri Twin Currency Deposit may be the perfect solution for you.

    To start investing, you will need to determine your second currency you wish to hold and must agree to terms including investment amount, currencies involved, maturity, and strike price. 

    Interest is earned in the originating currency, but the principal has the possibility of payment in the second currency, set the exchange rate, your deposit amount and your preferred deposit tenor.

    Upon fixing date, if the prevailing exchange rate for the base currency matches or is higher than your pre-agreed rate, you will receive your initial deposit plus interest in your base currency.

    If the prevailing exchange rate for the base currency is lower than your pre-agreed exchange rate, you will receive your initial deposit plus interest in your alternate currency at your pre-agreed rate.

    A risk profile assessment will be conducted first to see your suitability for the product

  • Step-by-step Guide

    A step by step guide on how it works:

    Step 1

    • Choose a pair of currencies: Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR), Pound Sterling (GBP) or New Zealand Dollar (NZD)
    • One will be the Base Currency in which your deposit will be denominated, the other your Alternate Currency 


    Step 2

    • Decide on your investment amount (principal)
    • The standard tenor for deposit below BND100,000 is one month 
    • Option of 1 to 2 weeks tenor is available for deposit of BND100,000 and above 


    Step 3

    • Choose the pre-agreed interbank rate or strike rate between the two currencies based on your views on foreign exchange movements
    • The interbank rate for the base currency will also be fixed 


    Step 4

    • Receive your principal plus yield in the Base or Alternate currency depending on whether the pre-agreed interbank rate or strike rate is reached on the fixing date i.e. two business days before maturity and the interbank rate for the base currency will also be fixed
    • The pre-agreed interbank rate will apply should your principal and yield be converted into the Alternate Currency.
