Asian Fixed Income

By providing access to the developing and inefficient fixed income markets in Asia, our Asian Fixed Income strategies aim to seek attractive risk-adjusted returns with an emphasis on income and yield for our investors.

RMB Fixed Income

Aims to provide long term capital growth and income in RMB terms by investing in RMB denominated debt securities

Our philosophy

  • We believe RMB fixed income markets are developing and inefficient. Through a focused and disciplined investment process we can exploit investment opportunities arising from these inefficiencies to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns

Our process

  • The investment process of RMB fixed income, in line with overall Global fixed income process, seeks to add value through active management of all key variables in the RMB bond markets
  • It combines qualitative top-down analysis of macroeconomic and market dynamics, with structured bottom-up research into individual bond issuers and fixed income securities

HSBC strengths

  • As a pioneer pivoting on China, HSBC is one of the most recognised global banks in the country, facilitating clients' needs and winning series of awards
  • With over two decades of investment experience in Chinese assets, we are a well-resourced team with in-depth local insights and established investment process

Risk considerations:

The value of investments may go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Fixed income is subject to credit and interest rate risk. Investments in high yield securities (commonly referred to as “junk bonds”) are often considered speculative investments and have significantly higher credit risk than investment grade securities. The prices of high yield securities, which may be less liquid than higher rated securities, may be more volatile and more vulnerable to adverse market, economic or political conditions. Investments in emerging markets are by their nature higher risk and potentially more volatile than those inherent in some established markets. Derivatives can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and may have a potentially large negative impact on performance.

Asian Currencies Bond

Aims to capture opportunities in the growing Asian fixed income universe by investing primarily in fixed income securities issued in Asia and denominated in Asian currencies

Our philosophy

  • We believe the local currency Asian fixed income markets are developing and inefficient. Through an in-depth analysis of both the technical and fundamental drivers of rates and currencies in this market, we believe we should deliver superior risk-adjusted returns

Our process

  • We manage this strategy against the customised Markit iBoxx Pan Asia ex HKD and CNY (100% government)
  • We maintain flexibility in this strategy by taking off benchmark positions in corporate bonds, non-benchmark currencies and dollar bonds hedged back into local currencies

HSBC strengths

  • We have been managing Asian fixed income since 1996
  • Our team benefits from our global credit research platform which utilises the expertise of over 48 seasoned sector specialists across the world
  • We benefit from the goodwill and strong relationships that come with being a part of the HSBC Group, and our strong insight into client needs through on-the-ground presence
