Alternative investments services
HSBC’s Alternative Investment Group is responsible for creating hedge fund, real estate and private equity solutions for both private and institutional clients. Today, we manage or advise on USD27.8 billion (as of 31 December 2013) of clients’ assets.
Founded on the stability of the HSBC Group and combining over 25 years of alternative investing know-how, clients can benefit from our experience, global industry knowledge and institutional investment platform.
We offer a range of investment choices and services – including commingled funds, customised segregated mandates, and club deals and co-investment opportunities.
We believe that investment skill can be identified by our global, dynamic, repeatable research process, which helps us to identify the most talented managers across what we consider to be the best strategies globally. Reinforced by our strong industry relationships, we seek to combine our industry experience and investment skill to capture select managers during their best periods and avoid unrewarded risk.
Our conviction-led approach is driven by investment performance and the needs of our clients. We have a long history of identifying and working with what we consider to be ‘best-in-class’ managers, and we focus on identifying exclusive opportunities that we believe will deliver returns that reward an illiquidity premium.
We seek to bring our clients institutional-calibre real estate investment opportunities that leverage our expertise and HSBC's global network. Our philosophy is to bring our clients as close to the assets as possible, either through club deals or partnerships with what we consider to be ‘best-in-class’ managers.
