*SRI is an investment approach that aims to combine economic performance with social and environmental impact by financing companies that contribute to sustainable development in all business sectors.

The SRI label is awarded following a strict certification process led by independent bodies and forms a single indicator for savers looking to participate in a more sustainable economy. By influencing corporate governance and behaviour, SRI promotes responsible business practices.

How it works

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) approach

The investment approach is to select the companies with the best environmental, social and governance practice in each business sector. Companies doing business in the tobacco and arms sectors and those in breach of one or more of the UN Global Compact principles are excluded.

Today we finance a number of industries that significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. We have a strategy to help our customers to reduce their emissions and to reduce our own. For more information visit

A low risk portfolio

This portfolio is classified by HSBC as ‘low risk’. It’s rated as 2, where 1 is a lower level of risk and 5 is a higher level of risk. The lowest category does not mean a risk-free investment.

The base currency of the HSBC Responsible Investment Fund Range is Euro.

The HSBC RIF Moderate targets a low level of investment risk by investing in assets whose values are likely to fluctuate by less than that of a higher-risk fund. Over time, these types of assets may produce better returns than cash based investments with the aim of keeping pace with inflation. Low risk products can fall in value to below the amount you invest, it should be viewed as something to stay in for at least 5 years.
