Foreign Exchange Risk Considerations
Before undertaking foreign exchange transactions, clients should understand the associated risks. Engaging in foreign currency transactions entails more varied
risks than normally associated with transactions in the domestic securities markets. Attention should be paid to market, credit, sovereign and liquidity risks. The
foreign exchange transactions and deposits discussed in this material may not be suitable for all clients. The appropriateness of a particular investment or strategy
depends upon a client's particular circumstances and objectives. This material does not provide individually tailored investment advice. Clients can review the
GlobalCurrency Disclosure Statement at for more details.
Eligible brokerage accounts include Active Assets Accounts SM (“AAAs”), Business AAAs, Basic Securities Accounts (“BSAs”), Business BSAs and

Based on market conditions, Savings Deposits in some currencies may pay no interest. Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC will charge a client a markup for
converting USD in the client’s brokerage account or foreign currency in a Savings Deposit to another currency, which will reduce the client’s net earnings.
The markup is the difference or “spread” between the price we pay for a currency and the price at which we sell the currency to a client. Please refer to for full availability. Incoming and outgoing wire capabilities (and account to account journals) are not available for
Individual Retirement Accounts ("IRAs") and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts ("CESAs"). Please note that not all currencies are available via Time Deposits.
FDIC insurance does not protect against losses due to exchange rate movements. For more information about FDIC insurance, please visit the FDIC website
