More about Single Asset Class funds

HSBC Global Investment funds are suited to investors who like to make their own investment decisions, or want to invest in a particular market.

They can be approached in 3 distinct ways:

  • By asset class
    You can invest through equity and bond funds, or other types of funds that invest in freely traded securities, money market instruments and other liquid assets.
  • By investment objectives or theme
    You can invest in markets that may be of particular interest to you, like climate change or regional and single country funds.
  • Emerging markets
    Our comprehensive global emerging markets offering is backed by our emerging markets and Asian equity research teams. It's managed by lead managers with local knowledge and regular access to the companies they invest in.

Questions you may have

Please remember that the value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not get back the amount you invested, and any income received from them can fall as well as rise. This could also happen as a result of changes in currency exchange rates, particularly where securities are held outside the UK or where investments are converted from one currency to another. We always recommend that any investments held should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment, at least 5 years.

Economies in emerging markets generally are heavily dependent upon international trade. They have been, and may continue to be, affected adversely by trade barriers, exchange controls, managed adjustments in relative currency values and other protectionist measures imposed or negotiated by the countries with which they trade.

By making investments yourself through our self-execution service, you will not benefit from the additional investor protections and assurances that form part of the benefit of obtaining professional investment advice through our advisory services.

If you are unsure about your personal tax obligations, you should seek professional advice. It is your responsibility to disclose your income to the tax authorities.
