Benefits of CLIs

In deciding the currency pairs, investors can choose from a variety of currencies, including AUD, CAD, CHF, EUR, JPY, NZD, SGD, and USD.


Risks of CLIs

  Foreign Exchange Risk
Investors face the risk of having their base currency converted to the alternate currency at a rate lower than the market at maturity.

  Liquidity Risk
CLIs are meant to be held to maturity. Early withdrawal may result in investors receiving less than their principal amount.

  Issuer Risk
CLIs are issued by financial institutions and investors are exposed to the issuers credit risk.
