What is Snowball？
Snowball is a non-principal-protected structured product. There are multiple observations during the term of the product, which could trigger early redemption at full principal amount plus a high interest rate. It allows investors to earn a high yield in various market environments, but carries the risk of the investment currency being converted to a different currency at the initial exchange rate when the market moves significantly in one direction.
