Exchange rate risk is the risk of fluctuations or change in the value of the foreign currency, which are inherent in foreign exchange markets. Foreign currency valuation may be impacted by numerous economic, political and social factors as well as supply and demand and government intervention, control and adjustment. Clients should be aware of the risks involved and are solely responsible for any and all decisions relative to foreign currency transactions.

A service charge may apply on a transaction under a stated U.S. Dollar amount. Orders for currency cancelled following confirmation but before delivery are subject to reversal at City National's then current purchase rate. Special orders for currency not carried in stock must be prepaid. Other transaction minimums and service fees may apply. Ask us for details.
