We aim to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investment decisions to generate sustainable, long-term returns.
ESG factors can materially impact a company’s long-term performance. Put simply, we believe companies that conduct their business in a responsible and sustainable way are more likely to deliver value over time.
Responsible investing is integral to our investment philosophy and approach. We invest in, and engage with, companies committed to long-term returns: these are likely to focus on stewardship, take account of their broader impact on society and avoid excessive risk-taking.
As at 31 March 2020:
Responsible Investment AUM (i.e. assets managed according to at least one or more of the GSIA seven styles of sustainable investing*) - USD432.6 billion
Sustainable Investment AUM which contribute to HSBC’s USD100 billion commitment to combatting climate change - USD5.4 billion
Other (i.e. portfolios where we do not yet formally implement at least one of the GSIA seven styles of sustainable investing*) - USD55.1 billion
The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The value of the underlying assets is strongly affected by interest rate fluctuations and by changes in the credit ratings of the underlying issuer of the assets.
