Fund objective
The sub-fund aims to track the HSBC Economic Scale Index Emerging Markets (the "GEM Index") by investing in securities that are included in the GEM Index. The sub-fund will use a Full Replication strategy to track the GEM Index. The Investment Adviser may also decide to employ a strategy of Optimised Replication in specific circumstances, including but not limited to, the size of the sub-fund. The Optimised Replication strategy involves the acquisition of a subset of the component securities of the GEM Index and possibly of some securities that are not included in the GEM Index that are designed to help the sub-fund track the performance of the GEM Index. The sub-fund may also invest in financial derivative instruments for hedging purposes and cash flow management (i.e. equitisation). Where the sub-fund may be restricted to invest in certain component securities of the GEM Index, due to HSBC Group and/or local regulator restrictions, the sub-fund may use financial derivative instruments (e.g. contracts for difference) to achieve exposure to such components.
