HSBC Global Asset Management launches new fund

RELATED TOPICS​

HSBC Global Asset Management has launched the HSBC China Government Local Bond Index Fund.

The fund will track the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays China Treasury and Policy Bank 9 per cent Capped Bond Index. It will be domiciled in Ireland under HSBC’s ICAV platform, which facilitates access to fund globally.
 
The fund will be managed by HSBC Global Asset Management’s passive fixed income team, led by Head of Passive Fixed Income, Sebastien Faucher. The team currently managed around USD6.9 billion of assets in different strategies.
 
Faucher says: “With global yields at historically low levels, investing in China onshore bonds can offer investors the yield premiums they are searching for. At the same time, our view is that this asset class is far less impacted by global risk sentiment, offering compelling diversification benefits.
 
“As China opens up its bond market to overseas investors, foreign ownership in its onshore government bonds and policy bank bonds has picked up to around 8 per cent and 3 per cent respectively and is expected to rise further in the coming months. This presents significant opportunities, and our China presence and expertise mean we’re ideally positioned to help investors seize them.”
 
HSBC Global Asset Management currently manages USD84 billion in Asian fixed income and USD2.8 billion in onshore and offshore Chinese Fixed income as of June 2019.
