HSBC Dynamic Fund
Why equity funds?
All of us aspire for enough wealth to be able to finance at least some of our dreams. Giving our family the very best, educating our children, indulging in a hobby - things that can make our lives more rewarding. One of the best chances of doing so is by investing wisely and regularly today. When one is investing for the long-term, one has to look at generating a return that is greater than inflation. For example, if you get a return of 10 per cent from your investment and inflation is 8 per cent then the real return you have made is 2 per cent. Studies show that equity and equity linked instruments tend to outperform all other forms of investments in the long run. Hence you should look at investing some portion of your money in equity markets with an aim to meet future goals comfortably.
Presenting the HSBC Dynamic Fund
HSBC Dynamic Fund (HDF), a fund that seeks to capitalise on the potential upside in equity markets, and yet attempts to limit the downside risk by the active use of money market instruments and derivatives. The fund aims to normally invest in equity but can react quickly to a negative market by moving 100 per cent of its assets into money market instruments, fixed income securities and derivatives with an aim to limit the downside risk, in the event that the fund manager is bearish on the market.
