HSBC GAM unveils sustainable multi-asset funds

Multi-asset fundsHSBC Global Asset Management has launched three new funds in its sustainable multi-asset fund range.

The three funds – variously described as cautious, dynamic and adventurous – are available to UK investors and will complement the firm’s existing sustainable multi-asset balanced and conservative portfolios which launched in October 2018.

Each fund aims to provide long-term capital growth through investments which are globally diversified across different asset classes and regions.

The funds will invest in a range of sustainable investment strategies which aim to consider financial returns alongside environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.

Melissa McDonald, head of responsible investment at HSBC GAM, said: “As the global economy evolves to address sustainability issues, it creates opportunities and risks across multiple asset classes."
