At HSBC Global Asset Management, we understand the financial challenges of the pensions marketplace. We believe that our ability to appeal to an increasing number of scheme sponsors and to accumulate assets under management in an intensely competitive industry is indicative of the high service standards that we set as well as the investment performance delivered.
We have developed and cultivated long-standing relationships with a broad range of clients, from large superannuation funds to small defined contribution (DC) schemes. Whether you just need basic investment advice or a comprehensive DC proposition, HSBC Global Asset Management will be happy to help with your pension needs.

At HSBC Global Asset Management, we recognise that the challenges faced by trustees and sponsoring employers have never been more demanding. For example, nominal returns on traditional asset classes have fallen at a time when life expectancy is increasing significantly. This has led to rising contribution costs and, in some cases, spiralling funding deficits.
More and more DB schemes are seeking to diversify their investment portfolios in search of enhanced returns. However, this often necessitates dispersing scheme assets among an increasing number of investment managers, which makes some of the essential administration functions cumbersome.
We are not only able to draw on our own specialist investment capabilities but those of external providers, both via our rigorous multi-manager research/selection process and through collaborations with strategic partners.
As a DB client of HSBC Global Asset Management, you can be certain that, whatever your funding position, we will endeavour to provide you with ‘best in class’ investment solutions for your own specific needs at all times.
We understand that trustees and sponsors of DC schemes face a multitude of challenges and that the provision of a fully integrated solution can help to reduce the load. Access to smart investment thinking, genuinely automated payroll facilities, same-day dealing/unit allocation and effective multi-media communication are just a few of the potential benefits that you can look forward to when you bring your DC business to HSBC Global Asset Management. Moreover, we have developed a co-branded client pension site to complement our comprehensive service proposition. This user-friendly facility provides instant guidance and assistance to both employers and scheme members. It also includes tools on planning retirement income, personal budgeting and choosing funds.
At HSBC Global Asset Management, we never lose sight of the ultimate aim of a DC scheme, which is to encourage participation and personal involvement in making investment choices. Although the extent to which we are involved at a member level is controlled by our clients, you can be sure that our commitment extends way beyond the mere provision of a fund platform.
