Sustainable investments

At HSBC Asset Management, we believe the future needs to be self-sustaining for positive change. Besides taking into account climate risks in managing clients’ portfolios, we are committed to opening up a world of sustainable investment opportunities for our clients through the development of innovative products.

Being an early mover in the sustainable investing market, our track record in ESG dates back to the launch of our first Socially Responsible Fund back in 2001. From 2010, ESG considerations have been systematically integrated into our Equity, Fixed Income and Multi-Asset capabilities, and is progressively applied in Liquidity & Alternatives. With our proprietary ESG database now covering more than 17,000 financial instruments, we are one of the ‘firms who are among the industry’s strongest ESG proponents’ – as recently recognised by the Morningstar award of ‘ESG Advanced’.

Risk Warning

The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Where overseas investments are held the rate of currency exchange may also cause the value of such investments to fluctuate.

Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risks, read all scheme related documents carefully.
