HSBC Global Asset Management has launched two global sustainable funds to cash in on the growth in ESG-related investments.

The two funds, HSBC Global Sustainable Multi-Asset Conservative Portfolio and HSBC Global Sustainable Multi-Asset Balanced Portfolio, will sit alongside the company’s existing $87bn multi asset range.

Apart from adding sustainability considerations, both the funds follow the same methodology used in the company’s multi-asset range.

Carrying around 35% equity exposure, the Conservative portfolio aims to provide lower volatility compared to the Balanced portfolio, which has around 60% equity exposure.

To be made available from this month, the two portfolios will seek higher average ESG score as well as lower portfolio carbon intensity than the market.

It will consider asset classes in long term allocations where sustainable characteristics can be measured and follow at least one industry recognised sustainable investment methods, set out by the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance.
