The world is changing rapidly, but some things endure


These values describe how we interact with each other, with our clients, regulators and the wider community.

The HSBC values shape our approach to investment business which is characterised by four key beliefs.




We believe:

  • In connecting clients with opportunities - we are in the markets that matter most to our clients, both developed and faster growing and share expertise and thinking across all our markets
  • In doing the right thing for our clients - we don't believe in taking undue risks with our client’s money and try to make costs and processes as transparent as possible
  • In long and successful client relationships - we seek to provide investment solutions that meet our client’s long-term needs and follow a disciplined investment process
  • Being part of the HSBC Group brings strengths that benefit our clients - we share HSBCs culture and attitude to risk and strong insight into client needs through on-the-ground presence

These beliefs are further supported by an investment philosophy which demonstrates clarity and focus, discipline and application and high standards of investment governance, integrity and longevity of client relationships.

A cornerstone of HSBC Global Asset Management’s strategy is a focus on corporate 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.
