Banking in an offshore jurisdiction

1Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. All mortgages are subject to status and eligibility criteria.

2Please remember that the value of investments, and any income from them can fall as well as rise, is not guaranteed and you may not get back the amount you invested. This could also happen as a result of changes in currency exchange rates, particularly where overseas securities are held or where investments are converted from one currency to another. We always recommend that any investments held should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment, at least five years. This service is not currently available in Hong Kong.
