With the recent depreciation of the yen and rising prices, many of you may be thinking about investing your assets for the future.
The weak yen has become a hot topic these days, with prices falling as much as 149 yen per dollar.
Many people are thinking of starting asset management for the future due to the price increase of imported goods and the rising prices of things.
In fact, you can increase your assets even in a weak yen situation by managing foreign currencies well.

Up your interest rate with foreign exchange gains and limited interest rates!

Foreign exchange gains

When you make a foreign currency deposit or exchange money, you may consider " foreign exchange gains".
Foreign exchange gains are gains that arise from daily fluctuations in exchange rates.
For example, if you buy US dollars at 100 yen per dollar and exchange them for dollars at 105 yen per dollar when the yen is weak, you will make a profit of 5 yen.
Conversely, if the yen appreciates to 95 yen per dollar and you exchange yen for dollars, you will lose 5 yen.
If you currently have a foreign currency deposit, you will earn a foreign exchange profit equal to the difference between the exchange rate at that time and the rate at which you exchanged your money!
Note that you may also incur a foreign exchange loss depending on the exchange rate.

Sony Bank's "Limited Interest Rate Service Starting with Yen" offers higher interest rates than usual!

Limited interest rate service starting from JPY

For those who have started a Yen Savings Deposit for asset management, we recommend Sony Bank's "Limited Interest Starting from Yen " service!
This service is available when you apply for a foreign currency time deposit directly from your Yen Savings Deposit, and the interest rate will be higher than usual.
Deposits can be made from 100,000 yen, and after 100,000 yen, the deposit amount can be specified in 1 yen increments and the deposit amount can be adjusted as desired.
Seven types of foreign currencies, including the U.S. dollar, are currently offered for Foreign Currency Time Deposits.
Since you can choose from a wide variety of foreign currencies, you can select the foreign currency you wish to deposit by comparing the exchange rates at that time.

You can choose what to do after maturity!

You can choose from the following three patterns for your maturing deposit.

  • Automatic continuation of principal and interest
  • Automatic cancellation (deposit into Foreign Currency Savings Deposit)
  • Automatic cancellation (deposit into Yen Savings)

You can choose one of the following three options: "Automatic Renewal ", in which the deposit amount continues to be invested at the normal foreign currency time deposit interest rate upon maturity; " Automatic Cancellation ", in which the deposit amount is credited to the foreign currency savings account after maturity and can be converted to yen at any time; or "Automatic Termination", in which the deposit amount is automatically converted to yen at the exchange rate at the time of maturity and credited to the Yen Savings Account. Automatic Cancellation " is a type of savings account that is automatically converted to yen at the exchange rate at maturity and credited to the Yen Savings Account.
Since the handling after maturity is different for each of these options, it is nice to be able to choose the one that best suits your profit and loss based on the exchange rate at that time.

Sony Bank also offers a service called " Foreign Currency Deposit Profit and Loss Status Tool " that allows you to track your foreign currency deposit profits and losses.
This service allows you to instantly see how much profit or loss you are making, and how much profit or loss you have made so far.
This kind of management becomes more and more complicated over time, so you should take advantage of this service to help you keep track of it!

If you are looking for a high interest rate, Sony Bank is the place to go!
