You don't have to post your personal return. All you need to post is the little snippet in the fine print that says you're guaranteed
11.5% (or 11-14%, or whatever it says).
If you just posted a picture of a $500k account that accrued 11.5% in interest one year, that doesn't tell me anything. I don't care about that. That's what your 1099-INT would show me, but that doesn't tell me anything.
I only care about the part that talks about the guaranteed
11-14% APY. And I'm just curious as to why HSBC Australia's online account says something completely different for investments in the $1 - $1,000,000 range.
