HSBC Real Economy Green Investment Opportunity Global Emerging Market (REGIO)

Enabling investors to align their financial objectives with real economy impact to deliver against the Paris Climate Agreement and Sustainable Development Goal agenda


The UN-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Paris Climate Agreement set a long-term transformational framework for the global economy with meaningful investor consequences if they fail to deliver.

Emerging markets have an urgent need to attract investment to tackle climate-change mitigation and adaptation to meet these goals. However, these markets are more likely to suffer the cost of climate change whilst being less able to self-finance solutions. This means that investors are exposed directly and indirectly to climate and sustainability risks across the financial system and in emerging markets in particular.

Investment opportunity

HSBC Asset Management, together with leading Development Finance Institutions (DFIs), have created an innovative investment solution to these challenges. REGIO will seek to:

  • Invest in a diversified portfolio primarily comprised of emerging market green bonds and other similar bonds, principally issued by corporate issuers, on a buy-and- maintain basis
  • Deliver real economy impact in primarily lower Gross National Income (GNI) countries
  • Enable investors to achieve long-term, sustainable returns, whilst delivering on broader climate and environmental objectives in line with the SDGs and Paris Climate Agreement.
