A third label for HSBC RIF -Europe Equity Green Transition (1)
A thematic equity fund
Investing in HSBC RIF - Europe Equity Green Transition (1), is one way of contributing to both the transformation of our ecological model and the transition to green growth.
HSBC RIF – Europe Equity Green Transition recently added a Belgium label « Towards Sustainability » (2), to its two existing labels (SRI Label and the Greenfin Label France Finance Verte). The « Towards Sustainability » label, developed on the initiative of Febelfin, the Belgium Financial Sector Federation, aims to promote sustainable financial products for its end investors. It guarantees that the SRI investment process is structured, rigorous and transparent.
HSBC RIF - Europe Equity Green Transition is a high conviction sub-fund invested in small to large European companies focused on the transition to green growth.
The distinctiveness of the sub-fund lies in our research into companies whose underlying businesses fit into one of the 8 eco-sectors such as the Circular Economy, Organic Agriculture & Forest, and Green Buildings. These businesses must account for at least 10 per cent of the company’s revenue.
The investment manager’s goal is threefold: identify the green portion of the company’s revenue linked to energy and ecological transition, assess companies by their profitability / valuation profile and ensure that they respect the best ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) practices.
