For example, Standard Chartered Bank lowered its previous one-month U.S. dollar deposit interest rate from 10% to 8%.
However, in order to attract mainland high-net-worth individuals, Standard Chartered recently launched two fixed deposit products, 7-day and 14-day, for priority private financial management and platinum foreign exchange members.
Among them, the annual interest rate of 7-day short-term time deposits for Hong Kong dollars and US dollars is 10%, but for British pounds, Australian dollars, etc., it is as high as 13.8%.

Fixed deposit interest rate coupons.
Finally, we also want to remind you of the risks.
Some experts said that cross-border deposits need to pay attention to exchange rate risks to avoid losses due to exchange rate fluctuations.
Dong Ximiao, chief researcher of the China Merchants Union and part-time researcher at the Institute of Finance at Fudan University, said that currently, the financial markets, financial systems and financial products of the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao are quite different.
Investors, whether from the Mainland or Hong Kong and Macao, should learn more about the financial markets, systems and products of the Mainland, Hong Kong and Macao, and on this basis make rational investments based on their own investment capabilities, needs and risk preferences.
Mainland investors, in particular, must fully understand and anticipate the systems and risks of the financial markets in Hong Kong and Macao.
At the same time, financial management departments also need to adhere to the qualified investor mechanism arrangements and properly protect the legitimate rights and interests of investors.
