Di­a­mond stud­ded venue for an award-win­ning As­set Man­age­ment port­fo­lio

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

At an ex­clu­sive cus­tomer event, HSBC Global As­set Man­age­ment shared its global in­vest­ment strat­egy for 2018 and pro­vided an up­date on the chang­ing global econ­omy.

The event held at GABA premises in Ik­lin fea­tured key­note speeches by Stéphane Mes­nard, the fund man­ager for HSBC Se­lect Funds, and Wayne Spi­teri, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of HSBC Global As­set Man­age­ment Malta.

When wel­com­ing the guests HSBC Malta’s Head of Re­tail Bank­ing and Wealth Man­age­ment, Daniel Robin­son said: “We pride our­selves in of­fer­ing our cus­tomers high qual­ity fi­nan­cial ad­vice and with the help of HSBC Global As­set Man­age­ment Malta we are able to share knowl­edge and mar­ket in­sight that our clients value.”

The HSBC Global As­set Man­age­ment Malta is part of the HSBC Global As­set Man­age­ment Group, one of the largest as­set man­agers in the world. It spe­cialises in in­vest­ment prod­ucts for re­tail and in­sti­tu­tional clients and forms part of a group that man­ages over €400 bil­lion in as­sets and is present in over 26 coun­tries.

Stéphane Mes­nard said: “For clients, there are a lot of dif­fer­ent ways to in­vest their as­sets, in more tra­di­tional op­tions such as fi­nan­cial mar­kets (bonds and eq- uities) or in the non-tra­di­tional as­set class such as real es­tate. Hav­ing a mix of in­vest­ments in dif­fer­ent as­set classes, if pos­si­ble, is a good way to man­age and in­crease one’s wealth.”

Adding to what Stéphane Mes­nard shared, Wayne Spi­teri said: “Our funds are highly di­ver­si­fied and the in­vest­ment process fol­lows a rig­or­ous risk and gov­er­nance frame­work aimed at giv­ing the best ser­vice to all our cus­tomers.” Com­ment­ing on the cus­tomer sup­port, Mes­nard said: “HSBC’s ap­proach is to be present with clients over the long-term and in­vest their money ac­cord­ing to a strong, rig­or­ous and sta­ble in­vest­ment process.”

Wor­thy of note is that over the past 20 years, the HSBC’s Global As­set Man­age­ment Malta has grown and is now en­trusted with over €1 bil­lion of as­sets. Cus­tomers are able to in­vest in lo­cally man­aged funds or group-man­aged funds, which in­clude the HSBC Se­lect range. More in­for­ma­tion can be ob­tained by mak­ing an ap­point­ment with the fi­nan­cial ad­vis­ers at one of the branches.
