How HSBC World Selection funds work
Three-step investment process
Our fund managers select investments for all the different World Selection portfolios, using dynamic and strategic investment distribution techniques.
They combine global assets in order to achieve the optimal mix of characteristics for each portfolio. The fund portfolios range from conservative to aggressive in outlook, so you can find an investment to match your personal risk profile.
The funds are monitored around the clock by our investment managers in offices around the world. So we can respond by making necessary adjustments to the World Selection portfolios to ensure they reflect their associated risk profile at all times.
Things to know
- The distribution of risk rating for each portfolio is performed by HSBC France. The risk rating scale consists of five levels: very low, low, medium, high and very high. The position of the capital within the scale is calculated based on the capital's volatility in a period of five years. If the capital does not have a five-year historical performance record, the risk level is calculated based on the volatility of an index or based on volatility strategy. This particular risk scale is provided solely for explanation purposes and can be altered without warning. It's also established under normal market conditions.
- Every World Selection mutual fund is exposed to the risks associated with each of the different investment categories. Therefore it is possible that it shows greater volatility or lower liquidity from traditional investments.
- Low investment risk does not mean that your capital is not at risk.
- Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities (UCITS) don't have a guaranteed return and previous performance does not guarantee future performance.
- The information on this page is not and cannot under any circumstances be deemed as investment advice or an exhortation to invest.
- Prior to making any investment decision, verify that the investment products you are examining meet your financial requirements and investment goals and consider the legislation that applies to your case. It is recommended that you refer to your usual consultants (lawyers, tax advisors, notaries, etc.) for help with your decision. Participation registrations in the UCITS sub capitals of the Luxembourg law of the HSBC portfolios described here can be undergone only in accordance to the current informative report, which you can obtain after request from HSBC Greece, from the topic guardian, the financial department or the representative. Investors should read the informative report for detailed information about the risks associated with the UCITS sub capitals of the Luxembourg right HSBC portfolios. Previous performances do not guarantee future ones. Like any other investment that is exposed to market fluctuations, the price of HSBC portfolio shares may fall or rise.
