Copied from PBB website:

PB Dual Currency Investment (DCI) is a short term currency linked structured product investment that aims to provide the opportunity to capitalize on foreign exchange movements that potentially allows you to earn a higher interest rate on your money than traditional fixed deposits.

On the Maturity Date, you will receive the DCI Interest Amount in the Investment Currency (initial Investment Currency) and the Investment Amount may either be repaid in the Investment Currency or the predetermined Alternate Currency (nominated Alternative Currency), converted at the pre-agreed foreign exchange rate (Strike Rate).
Features & Benefits
Low minimum investment amount i.e. MYR50,000* (in multiples of MYR5,000) or foreign currency equivalent
Short Investment Tenure, ranging from 1 week to 3 months
Wide range of currencies to select i.e. Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR), Great Britain Pound (GBP), Japanese Yen (JPY), Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), New Zealand Dollar (NZD), Singapore Dollar (SGD) and U.S. Dollar (USD)
Enjoy potentially higher return than traditional fixed deposits
Flexible in personalising to your Investment Tenure and specific currency view
* DCI is only offered to High Net-Worth Individual / High Net-Worth Entity / Accredited Investor as stipulated in the Capital Markets and Services Act (CMSA) 2007 (Amendment of Schedules 5, 6 and 7) Order 2012 or any amendment of CMSA from time to time

Cant remembered local bankers asking for assets and liabilities in USD when applying for loans.

If local bankers can accept, who cares whether is useless to a local American.

This article appeared in the Malay Mail in Oct 2018.

https://www.malaymail.com/s/1685061/malaysi...-whos-wealthier

Gives you an idea of how many millionaires there are in Msia. For comparison purposes they have used USD as a common benchmark.

Nonetheless I believe Bank Negara uses RM1 million as a yardstick to define high networth. Networth as in TA-TL=NW.

From the article;

"Malaysia also has a relatively high Gini index value of 82 per cent based on the wealth distribution patterns among Malaysian adults, which suggests high wealth inequality."

Malaysia has fewer high net worth individuals than most thought. many people feel or appear rich from debts, which is consistent with elevated level of household debts.

I think quite a lot what. For e.g. 3% has between USD100k to USD1mil. That's RM400k to RM4mil. This is much more than your wrongly quoted 3% has USD100k.

685,000 households earn more than RM400k per annum. Wah, if one household has 4 members, it means about 10% of household earn 400k and above per annum. That's pretty high.
