ESG and RI strategies
At HSBC Asset Management, we believe the future needs to be self-sustaining for positive change. Besides taking into account climate risks in managing clients’ portfolios, we are committed to opening up a world of sustainable investment opportunities for our clients through the development of innovative products.
Being an early mover in the sustainable investing market, our track record in ESG dates back to the launch of our first Socially Responsible Fund back in 2001. With our proprietary ESG database now covering more than 20,000 financial instruments, we are one of the ‘firms who are among the industry’s strongest ESG proponents’ – as recognised by the Morningstar award of ‘ESG Advanced’1 for a third year running.
Our dedicated Responsible Investment team leads the development of new ESG, climate change and thematic products and solutions, and the delivery of thematic research contributing to thought leadership. They oversee the integration of ESG risks and opportunities across asset classes, as well as the firm’s voting policy and engagement.
