Benefits

  • Hedge against exchange rate fluctuations
    A good option to hedge against exchange rate fluctuations by keeping money in the account until the rate is beneficial to you.
  • Funding for your child's future education
    If you plan to send your child to study overseas, for example in Australia, saving your child's education fund in an Australian Dollars denominated FCA-i will potentially save you the worries of Australian Dollars appreciating against the Malaysian Ringgit. This may help you better manage your budget to support your child's education.
