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

  • Equity risk: Funds that invest in securities listed on a stock exchange or market could be affected by general changes in the stock market. The value of investments can go down as well as up due to equity markets movements.
  • Discretionary management risk: Discretionary management is based on anticipating the evolution of different markets and securities. There is a risk that the fund will not be invested at any time in the most efficient markets and securities.
  • Foreign Exchange risk: Where overseas investments are held, the rate of exchange of the currency may cause the value to go down as well as up. Variations in exchange rates between currencies can have a significant impact on the performance of the products presented.
  • Small caps risk: Please note that the fund is invested in securities issued by companies which, due to their small market capitalization, are less liquid and may present higher risks.

Important information

HSBC GIF Global Equity Sustainable Healthcare is a sub fund of HSBC Global Investment Funds, a Luxemburg domiciled SICAV. 

Before subscription, investors should refer to Key Investor Document (KIID) of the fund as well as its complete prospectus. For more detailed information on the risks associated with this fund, investors should refer to the complete prospectus of the fund.

The shares of HSBC Global Investment Funds have not been and will not be offered for sale or sold in the United States of America, its territories or possessions and all areas subject to its jurisdiction, or to United States Persons.

Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. Future returns will depend inter alia on market developments, the fund manager’s skill, the fund’s level risk and management costs and if applicable subscription and redemption costs. The return, the value of money invested in the fund may become negative as a result of price losses and currency fluctuations. There is no guarantee that all of your invested capital can be redeemed. Unless stated otherwise, inflation is not taken into account.

The fund uses the swing principle calculation method which determines the net asset value of the fund. Swing pricing allows investment funds to pay the daily transaction costs arising from subscription and redemptions by incoming and outgoing investors. The aim of swing pricing is to reduce the dilution effect generated when, for example, major redemptions in a fund force its manager to sell the underlying assets of the fund. These sales of assets generate transaction costs and taxes, also significant, which impact the value of the fund and all its investors. 

The fund has a redemption threshold (gate), the level at which the manager of an undertaking for collective investment in transferable securities can stagger the redemption of securities instead of proceeding immediately.
