Fund objective
The Fund aims to provide long-term total return (meaning capital growth and income) by investing in shares from companies in Brazil, Russia, India and China (also known as BRICs). The Fund may invest in shares from companies in Hong Kong’s special administrative region (SAR). In normal market conditions, at least 90% of the Fund’s assets are invested in shares (or securities that are similar to shares) from companies that are based in, or carry our most of their business in, the above countries. There aren’t restrictions on the market values (also known as market capitalisation) of the companies held in the Fund. The Fund's maximum exposure to China A-shares and China B-shares is 50% of its assets. The Fund may invest up to 10% of its assets into other funds including other sub-funds of HSBC Global Investment Funds. See the Prospectus for a full description of the investment objectives and derivative usage.
