Thursday, May 05, 2011

Opalesque Industry Update - HSBC Alternative Investments Ltd today announced the expansion of its flagship HSBC GH Fund of Hedge Funds to clients holding CNH deposits.

The HSBC GH Fund was launched in 1996. This new share class will be the first CNH fund of hedge funds offering, demonstrating HSBCs ability to offer clients investment opportunities that capitalise on the rapid growth of the CNH market.

The GH Fund has delivered strong performance, with an average annual return of the USD share class of 7.49% since inception (net of fees). The fund already offers currency classes hedged into Euro, Sterling, Swiss Franc, Singapore Dollar, Japanese Yen & Australian Dollar. The introduction of the offshore Renminbi is a significant step and reflects the growing internationalisation of the currency and the ever changing needs of investors.

HSBC has attained a leadership position in the CNH market, most recently launching the HSBC Offshore Renminbi (RMB) Bond Index (CNH) in March 2011.

Commenting on the launch, HSBC Alternative Investments Ltd, CEO Chris Allen said:
The launch of this new share class will offer investment opportunities in a burgeoning new market. It demonstrates HSBCs capabilities in bringing customised cross-border solutions to our clients.

The HSBC GH Fund has AUM of $2.6billion as of the end of March 2011.
