You can fund your account in a currency other than the account currency.
Note: a conversion fee will be added which can vary depending on your region. The fee is calculated by using the mid-spread FX spot rate at the time of transfer, plus/minus the conversion fee.
Example of currency conversion by Saxo:
Mid Spot Rate USDSGD = 1.3510
Conversion Fee +/- 0.75% (for illustration purposes only)
Converting SGD to USD
FX rate used = 1.3510 * 100.75% = 1.361133
USD receive = SGD 1000 divided by 1.361133
= USD 734.68
Converting USD to SGD
FX rate used = 1.3510 * 99.25% = 1.340868
SGD receive = USD 1000 multiply by 1.340868
= SGD 1,340.86
