We take your security very seriously. In order to protect you and our systems, we are making changes to all HSBC websites that means some of the oldest web browser versions will no longer be able to access these sites. Generally, the latest versions of a browser (like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, etc.) and an operating system family (like Microsoft Windows, MacOS) have the most up-to-date security features.

As a truly global organisation with local expertise, we are well placed to meet our clients’ ever-changing investment needs. HSBC Asset Management offers clients an extensive choice of ETFs that enable cost effective access to some of the world’s leading indices. Our ETF range combines our emerging market credentials, sustainable investing focus and our belief that thematic investing is becoming an ever increasing part of the investment landscape.
In times of volatility and change, investment strategies that can quickly respond to changing market sentiments through flexibility, specialist expertise and timely access to opportunities are paramount.
We have many years of experience in constructing ETFs that can capture opportunities in complex, fast changing investment environments.
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.
A dedicated team on hand to help with ETF execution
We understand that simple and cost-efficient execution of your ETF trade can be just as important as the performance of the ETF itself.
As such, we are on hand for all enquiries relating to buying or selling of the HSBC ETFs. The team is constantly monitoring liquidity and pricing and communicating with Authorised Participants and Liquidity Providers. We take care to understand your specific requirements and provide expertise to help in your decision-making.
Pre-trade analysis – Liquidity analysis looking at both secondary and primary market liquidity; Market impact and expected trade costs for buy, sell and switch trades

APs and liquidity providers – Connections with all key ETF liquidity providers in Europe; Facilitates access to axes, inventories and distribution trades
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
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.
