How do Dual Currency Investments work?

NAB Dual Currency Investments, or DCIs, are short term currency referenced investments issued by NAB. DCIs can offer you, the investor, the possibility of generating an enhanced income return, referred to as the yield by referencing your investment to an underlying currency.

Dual Currency Investments (DCIs) can give you the flexibility to customise the risk and return of your investment.

You select:

  • the investment currency that your DCI references,
  • the term, between 1 week and 1 year, and
  • the conversion rate at which your original investment amount is placed at foreign exchange risk at maturity, referred to as the Strike Price.

Regardless of the market exchange rate at maturity, the investment yield will always be paid on maturity and in the investment currency.

This video provides an overview of DCIs, highlighting key features and risks.
