The HSBC Global Emerging Markets Local Debt Fund and HSBC New World
Income will be available to investors via a collective fund format.

Both are part of the HSBC Group’s flagship Luxembourg-based Global

HSBC New World Income has an absolute return objective of Libor plus 5 per cent per annum over the long term, with modest volatility.

Local currency EMD already exceeds hard currency EMD four-fold by market capitalisation, and offers plenty of potential to exploit market inefficiencies as well as capture appreciating currencies.”
