Responsible investing

Asset Management (AM) aim to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our investment decisions to generate sustainable, long-term returns. HSBC Global Asset Management (Canada) Limited is part of the group of companies that comprise the global asset management business referred to as HSBC Asset Management.

Our vision in Responsible Investment

Together with our clients, asset managers can help create a more sustainable world.

As trusted guardians, AM allocate capital and engage with holdings to encourage sustainable behaviour, helping our clients achieve their sustainability goals and fight against climate change.

The global shift towards sustainable investing means more opportunities.

AM see a multi-decade investment opportunity where new technologies, business models, investment products, alongside ESG integration, will facilitate both wealth creation and sustainable outcomes in the long term.

The net-zero transition will give rise to new, valuable asset classes.

Natural, human and social capital are the world’s most precious resources.  AM support their development into investible asset classes with the aim of directing capital towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainable investing is embedded into our fiduciary duty.

AM invest with purpose and discipline. Our approach incorporates valuation and materiality frameworks, constantly striving to improve risk-adjusted returns whilst integrating sustainability across the platform.

A sustainable world is fair and inclusive.

AM are committed to helping our stakeholders prosper – our clients, shareholders, employees and the societies which AM operate in, developing countries in particular. No one should be left behind in a just transition.

Engagement and stewardship are powerful tools of change.

AM hope to offer the best to our future generations by promoting positive behaviour throughout invested companies and advocating for a more sustainable financial system in collaboration with the industry.
