At IndusInd Bank, we believe in serving you with the best banking experience, and give you more than just what's expected. In line with the above, we are pleased to present to you – 'Rupee Multiplier' that enables you to maximum your returns on your FCNR deposits.

Rupee Multiplier will be an asset to your investment portfolio and can be used as an effective diversification option.

Rupee Multiplier is a forward contract against an underlying FCNR deposit, which allows you to earn a higher effective yield* vis-à-vis a regular FCNR deposit or an NRE deposit.

A forward contract agreement is entered between the bank and you wherein the bank agrees to buy foreign currency (FCNR maturity proceeds) from you at a pre-agreed rate. Depending on the currency market rates, you would earn a premium and thereby a higher effective yield on your FCNR deposit.

Rational of customers to go for forward contract
  • Protection from exchange rate fluctuation.
  • End rupee value of the Deposit is known upfront.
  • Choice of currencies available vis-à-vis USD, GBP, EUR, JPY, AUD, CAD depending on their yields against INR.
  • Enhancing the yield through an interest rate arbitrage opportunity.
  • Maturity proceeds are available in repatriable form in your NRE Savings Account.
Enhancing the Yield

A customer who remits USD 10,000 for tenure of 1 year to invest in a deposit would evaluate the following yield/return.

  FCNR Deposit
Deposit Amount (USD) 10,000
Spot Rate 45.5
Deposit Interest Rate 1.84%
Interest Earned (USD) 184
Conversion Rate (Forward Rate) 47.57
Redemption Value (USD) 10,184
Redemption Value (INR) 484,453
Duration 1 Year
Actual Yield 6.47%

The above example indicates that the customer could enhance his yield by retaining the deposit in foreign currency and entering into a forward contract. The net impact would ensure that the forward rate + deposit rate can be used to gain a better rate by investing in a FCNR (B) deposit and then converting to INR at the end of the tenor.

The customer earns a yield of 6.47% by investing in FCNR deposit with Forward Rate option.

*Higher effective yield is basis the rates prevailing in the currency market for a given foreign currency vis-à-vis INR subject to the forward contract being in force till the maturity of the contract
