A distinctive approach at our core



China: Promises, promises
The 'whatever it takes' moment

March 2022


Since 1 March 2021, HSBC Asset Management has been operating a securities lending programme for the benefit of ETF fund investors. Securities lending is a practice within capital markets whereby a holder of a security, such as an ETF, temporarily lends some of its securities out to a borrower in exchange for collateral and a fee. It is a well-established process within the investment management industry used to enhance fund performance through additional income earned.

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. For more detailed information on how the programme affects a specific ETF, please visit the Fund Centre and refer to the Securities Lending Programme within the Documents section.

Key risks and important information

The value of an investment in the portfolios and any income from them can go down as well as up and as with any investment you may not receive back the amount originally invested.

  • Concentration Risk: The Fund may be concentrated in a limited number of securities, economic sectors and/or countries. As a result, it may be more volatile and have a greater risk of loss than more broadly diversified funds
  • Counterparty risk: The possibility that the counterparty to a transaction may be unwilling or unable to meet its obligations
  • Derivatives risk: Derivatives can behave unexpectedly. The pricing and volatility of many derivatives may diverge from strictly reflecting the pricing or volatility of their underlying reference(s), instrument or asset
  • Emerging markets risk: Emerging markets are less established, and often more volatile, than developed markets and involve higher risks, particularly market, liquidity and currency risks
  • Exchange rate risk: Changes in currency exchange rates could reduce or increase investment gains or investment losses, in some cases significantly
  • Index tracking risk: To the extent that the Fund seeks to replicate index performance by holding individual securities, there is no guarantee that its composition or performance will exactly match that of the target index at any given time (“tracking error”)
  • Investment leverage risk: Investment Leverage occurs when the economic exposure is greater than the amount invested, such as when derivatives are used. A Fund that employs leverage may experience greater gains and/or losses due to the amplification effect from a movement in the price of the reference source
  • Liquidity risk: Liquidity Risk is the risk that a Fund may encounter difficulties meeting its obligations in respect of financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or other financial assets, thereby compromising existing or remaining investors
  • Operational risk: Operational risks may subject the Fund to errors affecting transactions, valuation, accounting, and financial reporting, among other things

Risk Warning

Index-based Investing - 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.
