Investment capabilities

We believe in connecting clients with opportunities by providing solutions which are consistent with our clients' objectives.

Our investment capabilities span all the main asset classes – equities, fixed income, multi-asset and liquidity – and we offer a focused range of developed and emerging market investment strategies. We believe that HSBC Global Asset Management is well placed to provide a globally-consistent, disciplined, investment process across these capabilities, which draws on the local knowledge and expertise of our team of over 500 investment professionals and approximately 2,200 employees based in c. 26 locations around the world.

Investment Philosophy

All our investment teams share a common philosophy. Our core investment belief is that good governance – clear investment beliefs and a well-executed process – is the key to delivering long-term value to our clients. We recognise that best-practice investment governance is essential to deliver on our fiduciary responsibilities and to help meet the objectives of our clients. Our clear and consistent investment beliefs are appropriately and consistently applied via a disciplined, long-term approach.

Our collaborative, global processes are complemented by a focus on priority capabilities and geographies, alongside governance infrastructure and management information. We have developed and continue to maintain robust investment processes and capabilities that are delivered within appropriate control and decision-making frameworks.

Investment Risks

Of course, there is no assurance that any strategy or portfolio will achieve its investment objective. Asset allocation does not protect you against a loss in a particular market; however it allows you to spread that risk across various asset classes. Investing is not without risks and you should be aware that the value of any investment can go down as well as up and that you may not get back the amount originally invested. Furthermore, any investments in emerging markets are by their nature of higher risk and potentially more volatile than those inherent in some established markets. Fixed income investments are subject to credit and interest rate risks. You should always consider seeking professional advice when thinking about undertaking any form of investment.
