A cornerstone of HSBC Global Asset Management’s strategy is a focus on governance to ensure that we fulfil our fiduciary responsibilities to clients. The aim of focusing on governance in everything we do is to ensure that we are responsibly fulfilling the trust that our clients are placing in us. The interests and indeed ultimate success of our clients is integral to our business strategy and governance approach. As a result, the beliefs we adhere to, and which are core to our culture, include:

  • We don’t believe in taking undue risks with our clients' money
  • When necessary we close funds to new inflows in an effort to protect existing investors and say 'no' to business we believe is not in the interests of our existing clients
  • We try to make our costs and processes as transparent as possible
  • We champion our clients' interests when engaging with regulators

Our focus on governance is not only confined to the inner workings and operations of our organisation, as we recognise that responsible investment factors can impact long-term corporate performance and investment returns. We therefore take an active interest in how companies manage these issues and, on behalf of our clients, encourage them to adopt the highest standards of business conduct.
