HSBC launches new global emerging markets equity freestyle fund

HSBC Investments has launched a new global emerging markets equity freestyle fund within its global investment funds range.

The launch should allow investors to capture the substantial opportunities available from markets that are expected to see growth outpacing those of developed economies.

The fund is managed by the groups specialist investment business HSBC Halbis Partners and says its freestyle approach allows the fund flexibility to invest in the most promising emerging markets and attractive stocks within these markets without benchmarking constraints.

HSBC Halbis Partners global head of emerging markets Nick Timberlake says: Global emerging markets are demonstrating a new maturity which is helping to support a strong investment case for the asset class. Historically emerging countries have relied heavily on exports to the developed world to drive their growth. Rising incomes and rapidly growing workforces are both helping to stimulate domestic demand today. We see this as a key new theme for the asset class.
