HSBC Real Economy Green Investment Opportunity Global Emerging Market (REGIO)
Enabling investors to align their financial objectives with real economy impact to deliver against the Paris Climate Agreement and Sustainable Development Goal agenda
The UN-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Paris Climate Agreement set a long-term transformational framework for the global economy with meaningful investor consequences if they fail to deliver.
Emerging markets have an urgent need to attract investment to tackle climate-change mitigation and adaptation to meet these goals. However, these markets are more likely to suffer the cost of climate change whilst being less able to self-finance solutions. This means that investors are exposed directly and indirectly to climate and sustainability risks across the financial system and in emerging markets in particular.
HSBC Asset Management, together with leading Development Finance Institutions (DFIs), have created an innovative investment solution
to these challenges. REGIO will seek to:
Invest in a diversified portfolio primarily comprised of emerging market green bonds and other similar bonds, principally issued by corporate issuers, on a buy-and- maintain basis
Deliver real economy impact in primarily lower Gross National Income (GNI) countries
Enable investors to achieve long-term, sustainable returns, whilst delivering on broader climate and environmental objectives in line with the SDGs and Paris Climate Agreement.
There is no assurance that a portfolio will achieve its investment objective or will work under all market conditions. The value of investments may go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Portfolios may be subject to certain additional risks, which should be considered carefully along with their investment objectives and fees.
Exchange Rate Risk Changes in currency exchange rates could reduce or increase investment gains or investment losses, in some cases significantly
Counterparty Risk The possibility that the counterparty to a transaction may be unwilling or unable to meet its obligations
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 may subject the Fund to errors affecting transactions, valuation, accounting, and financial reporting, among other things
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
Interest Rate Risk When interest rates rise, bond values generally fall. This risk is generally greater the longer the maturity of a bond investment and the higher its credit quality
Default Risk The issuers of certain bonds could become unwilling or unable to make payments on their bonds
Credit Risk A bond or money market security could lose value if the issuer’s financial health deteriorates
Green Bond Risk Investment in green bonds involves additional risks compared to other bonds, including that: (i) the market for green bonds is smaller and less liquid than markets for other types of bonds; (ii) projects for which the proceeds of green bonds are used are not always precisely defined; and (iii) green bonds may produce a lower yield than other types of bonds
