HSBC Asset Management to implement 19 new fixed income ETF share class listings


HSBC Asset Management has announced 19 new ETF share class listings within its fixed income range, as part of its move to issue listed and unlisted share classes to meet growing investor demand for flexibility. The ETFs were recently renamed “UCITS ETFs” to reflect regulatory requirements in Ireland and are issued by the HSBC Global Funds ICAV platform.

The new listings include variations of the Global Sustainable Government Bond UCITS ETF, China Government Local Bond UCITS ETF, Global Government Bond UCITS ETF, and Global Corporate Bond UCITS ETF. The listings will begin on Monday 10th July 2023 and will continue through July and August 2023. Most of the funds will be listed in the United Kingdom, with others to be listed in Germany and Italy.

The new listings mark a significant expansion of HSBC Asset Management’s ETF product range and the firm writes that it is expected to confirm HSBC Asset Management’s position as one of the top 10 largest fixed income ETF providers in Europe by assets under management (AUM). HSBC Asset Management’s total AUM for fixed income ETFs is predicted to increase to c.USD6 billion as part of the listings.

The newly listed funds will aim to meet different investor requirements through well-established existing funds and offer a variety of unhedged and hedged exposures to accommodate specific client requirements.

Olga De Tapia, Global Head of ETFs & Indexing Sales, HSBC Asset Management, says: “The large number of listings cements our commitment to serving the rapidly growing ETF market as we look to expand this project. By listing funds designed to suit the varying requirements of investors, HSBC Asset Management aims to offer clients greater choice and flexibility when constructing their portfolios.”
