Sustainable investments

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.

From 2010, ESG considerations have been systematically integrated into our Equity, Fixed Income and Multi-Asset capabilities, and is progressively applied in Liquidity & Alternatives. 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 recently recognised by the Morningstar award of ‘ESG Advanced’.

How we define sustainable investments:

ESG enhanced



Covers the spectrum of approaches to intentionally invest in companies based on relative ESG performance

E.g. ESG improvers, ESG tilt, ESG positive

Actively investing in ESG related growth areas and trends by seeking out companies or sectors that align with specific sustainable outcomes

Investing to deliver a direct, positive and measurable impact on society and/or the environment

Responsible investments

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 industry best practices and thought leadership. They oversee the integration of ESG risks and opportunities across asset classes, as well as the firm’s voting policy and engagement.
