Exchange rates

For immediate transfers, a live exchange rate will be displayed on the screen before you choose whether to go ahead with the transfer.

*Live exchange rates will be provided between the opening hours of the Hong Kong Market on Monday morning (local time) and the close of the New York Market on Friday afternoon (local time) - excluding public holidays and unexpected closures. Transfers made outside of these hours will be based on the most recent closing foreign exchange rates from New York or Hong Kong as applicable, and includes an additional premium in the exchange rate provided.
