The new generation of Sustainable Equity ETFs
HSBC UK Sustainable UCITS ETF
The first UK sustainable ETF with a reduced carbon target
As the topic of sustainability has become even more essential to the investment world, the demand for solutions that have positive impacts are rapidly growing. By combining our experience in passive investing with our socially responsible investing expertise, we have launched the HSBC Sustainable Equity ETFs, designed to take a step beyond traditional sustainable ETF solutions.
As the World’s Best Bank for Sustainable Finance1, we have collaborated with FTSE Russell to develop indices with an innovative 3-tilt approach which goes beyond typical market offering.
Did you know?
Designed to offer cost-efficient investment solutions to our clients, our new range of sustainable ETFs integrates ESG, carbon emissions and fossil fuel reserves considerations, while focusing on closely tracking customised FTSE Russell indices.
Investors’ desire to initiate change through sustainable investing continues to grow and long-run equity returns are increasingly driven by companies that effectively implement strong environmental, social and governance practices. These foundations are the driving force behind our new sustainable equity ETFs, which will provide investors with a core sustainable building block for their portfolios.
An innovative approach
An innovative triple tilting process – developed in collaboration with FTSE Russell – allows the indices to target:
20% ESG improvement
50% Carbon Intensity reduction
50% Fossil Fuel reserves reduction
We are stewards of our clients’ money
Passive investing does not mean being a passive investor. One natural concern among the investors community when it comes to sustainable investing is shareholder engagement. HSBC Global Asset Management is an active steward of the assets managed on behalf of clients. As an early signatory of the PRI in 2006, we are committed to responsible investing and do so by driving positive behaviour and promoting high standards.
