Offshore Renminbi Time Deposit Account
At present, Renminbi is not freely convertible and conversion of Renminbi is restricted. The government of the People's Republic of China continues to regulate conversion between Renminbi and foreign currencies. No physical deposit or withdrawal of Offshore Renminbi is permitted. There is no physical delivery of Offshore Renminbi. All placements/deposits into your Offshore Renminbi Time Deposit account can only be effected by converting funds denominated in a freely-convertible currency into Offshore RMB. A withdrawal of funds from your Offshore Renminbi Time Deposit account can only be effected by converting your Offshore Renminbi funds to a freely-convertible and available currency .You may therefore suffer loss from the foreign exchange conversion. In addition, you could potentially receive less than the full value of the principal amount. All currency conversions are subject to availability and will be effected based on Citibank's prevailing exchange rate. Currency conversions from Offshore Renminbi to a freely-convertible currency and vice versa will be effected at Citibank's prevailing exchange rates which will be based on the Offshore Renminbi interbank rates. The Offshore Renminbi interbank rates may be driven by various factors including market demand and supply and may be significantly different from the onshore Renminbi market rates. Citibank may at its discretion include a spread or markup in the exchange rates quoted. The Offshore Renminbi Products and Services terms and conditions apply. You should also be aware of the risks involved in placing an Offshore Renminbi Time Deposit.
