A Currency Linked Investment is a dual currency investment involving a currency option which confers on DBS the right to repay the principal amount and interest at maturity in either the base or the alternate currency, regardless of your preference.  All or part of the interest received on the Currency Linked Investment represents the premium on the currency option. Currency Linked Investments are subject to foreign exchange fluctuations, which may affect the return of your investment. Exchange controls may also be applicable to the currencies your investment is linked to. You may incur a loss on your principal sum in comparison with the base amount initially invested.
