  • The Spot Price equals the exchange rate determined by SMBC Trust Bank based on the exchange rate as quoted on the interbank market.
  • The Strike Price is calculated by subtracting/adding your selected differential from/to the Spot Price. If the exchange rate at 3:00 P.M. on your maturity date indicates deposit currency appreciation equal to or beyond your selected Strike Price, your principal will be converted into your selected counter currency at your selected Strike Price when paid.
  • The differential is the rate range to be used to set your Strike Price from the Spot Price. Selectable differential is within the range set by SMBC Trust Bank and subject to market conditions and may change without prior notice.
  • Deposit currency: USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD, CAD, CHF
  • Counter currency: USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD, CAD, CHF (Counter currency must be different from the deposit currency.)

Point 1

Whether the currency conversion occurs or not depends on the spot rate at 3:00 P.M. on the maturity day. Even if the market exchange rate exceeds the strike price during the deposit period, funds will neither be exchanged for the counter currency, nor will a decision be made to exchange for the counter currency, at that time.

Point 2

  • Even if you receive your funds in deposited foreign currency, the Yen-equivalent value you would receive may be less than the amount of Yen-equivalent value you initially deposited in the event the deposit currency has depreciated against Yen.
  • When you convert your received foreign currency funds in Yen, the TTB rate specified by SMBC Trust Bank will be applied to the conversion. The TTB rate includes the foreign exchange commission prescribed by SMBC Trust Bank.

Point 3

  • Please note that your principal will be converted into your selected counter currency at the Strike Price preset by you at the time of deposit, not at the exchange rate prevailing on the maturity date. Since the Strike Price is usually more unfavorable than the foreign exchange rate prevailing in the market at maturity, a loss of principal may occur when you convert your received foreign currency funds back into your deposit currency on the maturity date.
  • The Yen-equivalent value you would receive may be less than the amount of Yen-equivalent value you initially deposited in the event the counter currency has depreciated against Yen.
  • When you convert your received foreign currency funds in Yen, the TTB rate specified by SMBC Trust Bank will be applied to the conversion. The TTB rate includes the foreign exchange commission prescribed by SMBC Trust Bank.
  • When you convert your received foreign currency funds back into your deposit foreign currency, the TTB and TTS rates specified by SMBC Trust Bank will be applied to the conversion. The TTB and TTS rates include the foreign exchange commission prescribed by SMBC Trust Bank.
  • Please note that the foreign exchange rates and interest rates shown above are used as examples. Actual foreign exchange rates and interest rates that will be applied to your transactions will differ from these examples.
  • In principle, interest is subject to a 20.315% withholding tax (National tax 15.315% and Local tax 5%) for individual customers. Comprehensive income taxation applies to corporate customers. The tax rate etc. may change in the future due to reasons such as the revision of tax laws.
