HSBC Asset Management for Corporates

We work with more than 2,000 corporations of varying sizes and complexities across the globe to create, develop and execute bespoke and holistic strategies to help them reach their investment objectives. Our global platform provides unique access and solutions to the needs of multinational corporations.

Our approach

Our clients have diverse needs and we provide holistic solutions to help solve their challenges through a consultative approach, often starting from corporate treasuries and extending to pensions. To cater to a corporation’s various functions and requirements, we are able to offer a vast product suite from cash management to long term investment solutions.

Our clients

We have been serving a broad range of client types within the corporates space, across industries, geographies and sizes, from large multinational corporates, to small local businesses. We also extensively work with family offices, foundations and educational institutions.

More information about our solutions for managing pension assets can be found on our dedicated page for Pension Schemes.

Corporate Treasury

Four solutions for Cash Management:

Liquidity solutions:

  • To diversify counterparty risk while maintaining daily liquidity, we offer International AAA-rated money market funds in 5 currencies
  • To meet global corporates’ needs, we also have domestic funds in 11 currencies. These can also solve our clients’ need to manage trapped cash
  • For more information on our Liquidity solutions, head to our dedicated Liquidity page

Low duration fixed income:

  • Corporates are segmenting their cash needs in order to earn higher yields. A low duration strategy can vary from 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. We usually manage these portfolios through a bespoke segregated mandate

Short duration fixed income:

  • For strategic cash with slightly longer duration of 12-36 months, corporates can consider our short duration solutions. We offer segregated mandates and also funds (in selected countries).

Securitised credit:

  • In addition to higher yields, securitised credit is a solution which offers our clients lower levels of correlation with other fixed income asset classes. Plus they benefit from rising interest rates thanks to their floating rate nature

Corporate Pensions

We manage assets for pension clients globally, and are experienced in developing solutions for defined benefit and defined contribution schemes

We understand that pensions have local differences due to the regulatory environment. As a global asset manager, we can offer a centralised investment strategy with local vehicles. This affords pension schemes ease of oversight, with reduced fees.

Family Offices & Foundations

Every Family Office has unique investment objectives.

Here are some of the ways we have engaged with our clients:

Dynamic asset allocation

  • We advise families on part or all of their portfolios, on the fundamental drivers of returns and risk over the long term

Cash management

  • Our clients have expressed acute awareness to counterparty risk and increasingly demand greater diversification, for which our AAA-rated money market funds provide a model solution

Efficient implementation of strategies

  • We also offer a range of strategies across fixed income, equities and alternatives dependent on objectives

Client Testimonial: Why Lufthansa chose HSBC

We were looking for a partner that was global… someone who was flexible enough to provide us with a tailor-made solution that would cover the needs of Lufthansa. And this is when we hired HSBC.

Our key credentials

  • Global network of local experts: With presence in 26 countries and territories, we have a unique combination of experience in developed and developing markets
  • Robust risk management: We adopt a prudent and relatively low-risk cash management approach

Our commitment to Responsible Investing

  • We believe that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues can have a material impact on company fundamentals and performance over the longer-term
  • ESG issues are linked to opportunities and risks that financial markets may not be pricing appropriately
  • Therefore responsible investment is put into practice in 3 primary ways:
    1. Integrated ESG Research: ESG analysis is incorporated alongside financial analysis to quantify a company’s potential risks and returns over the longer-term
    2. Active Ownership: We are active stewards of the assets we manage on behalf of our clients.
    3. Policy & Advocacy: We actively engage with regulators and policy makers individually and collectively with other investors on systemic sustainable investment issues
