Foreign currency accounts (FCA)

We offer foreign currency accounts in a number of major currencies for investment and rand hedging purposes, subject to the usual Exchange Control regulations for offshore investments.

Foreign currency accounts are denominated in a foreign currency and conducted in our books. Interest is earned on credit balances at the market rates applicable to that currency. Contact your nearest foreign exchange outlet to find out more about FCAs.
