BRIC countries are Brazil, Russia, India and China (including Hong Kong SAR). Investments in Chinese equities include China A-shares and China B-shares with a maximum exposure of 50% of the fund's assets. The fund may invest up to 30% of its assets in China A-shares through the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and have up to 30% of its assets exposed to China A-shares indirectly through China A-shares Access Products (“CAAP”). The fund may invest up to 10% of its assets in funds (including other funds of HSBC Global Investments Funds). The fund may use derivatives for hedging and cash flow management. The fund is actively managed and does not track a benchmark. Consideration may be given to a reference benchmark when selecting investments.
