Making healthcare sustainable

HSBC GIF Global Equity Sustainable Healthcare

HSBC Asset Management is proud to announce the launch of its first Sustainable Healthcare Equity fund, a thematic fund that aims to achieve a sustainable investment in healthcare without sacrificing financial performance over the long term

Sustainable Solutions

Nathalie Flury and Michael Schröter on how HSBC’s Global Equity Sustainable Healthcare fund addresses key challenges.

In partnership with Citywire


We are delighted to collaborate with the Financial Times on a series of four articles exploring the state of the healthcare industry – the paradigm shift it’s undergoing and the implications; debunking commonly shared mindsets; examination of cost constraints; how, why, and where the industry is changing; and touching on the companies driving sustainable innovation. Read the full articles below.

A thematic fund that aims to achieve a sustainable investment in healthcare without sacrificing financial performance over the long term

¹ Formerly managed under a Swiss certificate before the launch in the HSBC GIF Luxembourg SICAV
² United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
³ Article 8 Product under the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation = A financial product promotes, among other characteristics, environmental or social characteristics, or a combination of those characteristics, provided that the companies in which the investments are made follow good governance practices

Why invest in sustainable healthcare now?

  • Global demographic trends, combined with rising healthcare costs straining healthcare systems globally, are enhancing the demand for sustainable healthcare solutions and products
  • Because of rising healthcare costs, payers around the world (i.e. insurances, governments) are increasingly denying patients access to innovative treatments, which in turn negatively impacts company revenues
  • The healthcare system has begun to undergo massive and rapid changes to become more sustainable from a cost point of view
  • This macro-economic trend opens new investment opportunities in scientific, technological and business innovation that address both improved patient outcomes and cost effectiveness at the same time

Key risks

The value of an investment in the portfolios and any income from them can go down as well as up and as with any investment you may not receive back the amount originally invested.

  • Counterparty Risk: The possibility that the counterparty to a transaction may be unwilling or unable to meet its obligations.
  • Derivatives Risk: Derivatives can behave unexpectedly. The pricing and volatility of many derivatives may diverge from strictly reflecting the pricing or volatility of their underlying reference(s), instrument or asset.
  • Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging markets are less established, and often more volatile, than developed markets and involve higher risks, particularly market, liquidity and currency risks.
  • Exchange Rate Risk: Changes in currency exchange rates could reduce or increase investment gains or investment losses, in some cases significantly.
  • Concentration Risk: The Fund may be concentrated in a limited number of securities, economic sectors and/or countries. As a result, it may be more volatile and have a greater risk of loss than more broadly diversified funds.
  • Investment Leverage Risk: Investment Leverage occurs when the economic exposure is greater than the amount invested, such as when derivatives are used. A Fund that employs leverage may experience greater gains and/or losses due to the amplification effect from a movement in the price of the reference source.
  • Liquidity Risk: Liquidity Risk is the risk that a Fund may encounter difficulties meeting its obligations in respect of financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or other financial assets, thereby compromising existing or remaining investors.
  • Operational Risk: Operational risks may subject the Fund to errors affecting transactions, valuation, accounting, and financial reporting, among other things.
