    Active ownership of passive ETFs

    • At HSBC, we are able to use our significant influence as investors to encourage corporate behaviour that enhances value, through company engagement, proxy voting, and as signatories to investor stewardship codes as the Principles for Responsible Investment, the UK Stewardship Code and the Hong Kong Principles of Responsible Ownership.
    • This paper provides a brief summary of our proactive engagement, voting, public policy and advocacy activity as active stewards for our passive ETFs, and gives an insight into how we leverage our extensive experience and depth of resources in these areas for the benefit of our ETF clients.
