How we help you invest in hedge funds
We focus on the needs and challenges you face. It’s the way we’ve always worked, and it’s this experience and the insights we have gained over the past quarter of a century that have contributed to HSBC becoming a centre of excellence for hedge fund investing.
Strong industry relationships
Our hedge fund research team has long-standing relationships with many of the world’s leading and specialist hedge funds, as well as access to new launches. We are able to leverage these relationships and enjoy a high level of engagement with all of the managers on our approved platform. This increased interaction helps to create a greater level of transparency between us and the manager, which in turn provides a greater insight into the investment and non-investment risks associated with each fund.
Global investment infrastructure
Our global investment infrastructure includes proprietary systems and is supported by experienced support and development teams. It is partly through this infrastructure that we can implement strong governance and comprehensive risk oversight across invested hedge funds, commingled and customised client portfolios.
With over 20 years’ allocation experience behind us and a proven track record, we are today one of the largest hedge fund investors globally (source: InvestHedge, Billion Dollar Club Survey, December 2012). We offer you a deep, well-researched manager platform and our expertise has been recognised by industry awards, and our investors and peers alike.
We believe that markets contain inefficiencies which can be exploited by hedge fund managers who exhibit the skill necessary to deliver excess returns. We believe that such investment skill can be identified by the global, dynamic and repeatable research process we have been developing for over 20 years.
We believe that we are able to identify the most talented managers across what we consider to be the best strategies globally, and ensure that we capture these managers during their best periods. We are able to manage investment risk through ongoing monitoring and due diligence, which helps us to avoid unrewarded risks.
