As the topic of sustainability becomes more and more mainstream, the demand for investment solutions that have positive impacts are rapidly growing. By combining HSBC Global Asset Management’s experience in passive investing and socially responsible investing expertise, they have launched the HSBC Sustainable Equity ETFs, designed to take a step beyond traditional sustainable ETF solutions.

As the World’s Best Bank for Sustainable Finance*, HSBC Global Asset Management has collaborated with FTSE Russell to develop indices with an innovative approach which goes beyond the typical market offering. Designed to offer cost-efficient investment solutions to clients, the range of sustainable ETFs integrates ESG, carbon emissions and fossil fuel reserves considerations, while focusing on closely tracking customised FTSE Russell indexes.

Olga De Tapia, Global Head of ETF Sales at HSBC Global Asset Management comments:
“Our new ETF range takes a step beyond traditional sustainable ETF products by tracking indices, developed by FTSE Russell, that follow an innovative three-tilt approach. This approach allows us to capture the benefits of positive inclusion and access companies that are transitioning towards a lower carbon economy. 
Due to the evolution of the energy industry, the indices aim to capture stocks with lower fossil fuel reserves intensity, including alternative energy companies. The indices’ target of a 50% reduction on fossil fuels reserves allows them to include those companies that are at the forefront of this transition.”

Stéphane Degroote, Managing Director, Head of ETFs & Derivatives business EMEA, FTSE Russell adds:
“FTSE Russell worked closely with HSBC Global Asset Management to develop bespoke indexes that integrate ESG ratings, carbon emissions and reserves considerations, paving the way for a new generation of ETFs. HSBC selected FTSE Russell because of our unique index construction approach that incorporates climate and ESG metrics while minimising off-target, consequential exposures – a smart, transparent solution to weighting companies. The index construction is complemented by a robust and traceable ESG scoring methodology. These ETFs enable investors to participate in the transition towards a low carbon economy, while also balancing governance, social and environmental concerns.”
