HSBC Sustainable Fixed Income ETFs

Our drive to embed ESG thinking into all of our products led to the development of our sustainable fixed income product range. Our objective is to incentivise change and to encourage companies to think about ESG best practice in all that they do.
Michael Ridley, Director of Responsible Investment

Going the extra mile – our ESG screening process

A holistic screening process; Socially Responsible Investment filter - Removes any issuers that may be involved in one or more of a range of controversial industries or industry practices; Best in Class* filter - Removes companies with exceptionally poor ESG practices and little hope of changing them any time soon; Carbon screen - Tackles the most immediate of environmental issues at this current time by excluding the weakest companies in terms their carbon emissions profile; Tilt factors - Magnifies the weights of issuers that have better ESG credentials and reduce the weights of those with weaker credentials

 

Why invest in our sustainable fixed income range?

Designed to take a step beyond market offering, our ETFs incorporate all three of Bloomberg’s existing ESG index approaches, alongside an additional carbon screen to tackle the most immediate of environmental issues.Our ETFs meet the letter and spirit of the Article 8 SFDR classification. In addition, our broad-based stewardship and engagement practices ensure that we are focused on governance related issues at the companies our products invest in.Our new fixed income ETF range harnesses our extensive experience in passive fixed income investing, combined with our socially responsible investment expertise.We believe that the right combination of embedded tilts and exclusions ensures that our products will remain relevant into the future even as the sustainable fixed income landscape continues to evolve.

Key risks

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.

  • 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
  • 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”)
  • Interest Rate Risk When interest rates rise, bond values generally fall. This risk is generally greater the longer the maturity of a bond investment and the higher its credit quality
  • 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. Investments in emerging markets are by their nature higher risk and potentially more volatile than those inherent in some established markets. Stock market investments should be viewed as a medium to long term investment and should be held for at least five years. Any performance information shown refers to the past and should not be seen as an indication of future returns.
