Global Equity Volatility Focused

A Volatility Focused strategy can provide a smoother performance pattern for an equity investment. By taking less investment risk compared to the benchmark, a Volatility Focused strategy can help preserve asset value in down markets, helping investors to stay invested to achieve long-term investment returns.

Our philosophy

We believe the market can misprice and undervalue companies. Our local and global specialists work together in searching for and uncovering investment opportunities.

Why this strategy?

  • The strategy invests in a breadth of quality companies from around the world
  • We conduct extensive research into the fundamental prospects and outlook for each company, including Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) analysis
  • We combine these companies into a portfolio that aims to have lower investment risk than the benchmark
  • The strategy is actively managed

HSBC strengths

  • We harness the extensive resources of our global investment network of over 200 equity specialists in 20+ countries and territories
  • We have created proprietary research tools specifically designed to support our disciplined investment framework
