HSBC GIF Global Lower Carbon Bond

The HSBC GIF Global Lower Carbon Bond fund is designed to provide potential long-term gains with a reduced carbon footprint.

Key benefits

The HSBC GIF Global Lower Carbon Bond Fund boasts a number of key benefits:

  • It invests in the main fixed income markets to capture investment opportunities globally
  • It reduces the most carbon-intensive holdings to mitigate the financial impacts of climate change that could arise unexpectedly
  • It seeks to deliver risk-adjusted returns comparable to other high-quality corporate bond funds
  • It has the ability to invest in green bonds to promote “green” initiatives beyond just reducing climate change

A research-driven approach

  • Our fixed income specialists are supported by our global research platform (+45 analysts globally)
  • Engagement with issuers to understand their impact and encourage carbon reduction when necessary

Focused on reducing carbon exposure

Our custom process allows us to reduce the fund’s carbon footprint significantly, while at the same time seeking to generate returns that are better than the benchmark

  • We follow the Greenhouse Gas Protocol to measure companies’ greenhouse gas emissions, commonly measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e)
  • We first measure the carbon footprints of single securities, to tell us how many tCO2e are associated with each. Then we assess the carbon footprint of the overall fund
