Important Risk Warning:
  • The mention of any investment product should not be construed as representing a recommendation to buy or sell that product, nor does it represent a forecast on future performance of the product.
  • Unit Trusts are investment products and some may involve derivatives. The value of investments and units may go down and up, and the investor may not get back the original sum invested. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. In a worst case scenario, the value of the fund may worth substantially less than the original amount you have invested (and in an extreme case could be worth nothing).
  • Investors and potential investors must not solely rely on the content in this website to make investment decisions and should read carefully and understand the offering documents (including the prospectus and full text of the risk factors stated therein), available at HSBC branches and at the fundhouses' webpages, before investing.
  • Before you make any investment decision, you may wish to consult a financial adviser. In the event that you choose not to seek advice from a financial adviser, you should carefully consider whether the investment product is suitable for you.
