I had a time deposit in Australian Dollar. Why was my deposit converted to Hong Kong Dollar upon maturity?
If you choose to receive the proceeds of your time deposit in a HKD account, it will be exchanged into HKD at the prevailing rate upon maturity. If you want to redeem your time deposit in the same currency upon maturity, please ensure you select an account of the same currency (i.e. AUD) as your time deposit.
