Euroland equity

Euroland Equity Strategy

Aims to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns with exposure to Eurozone mid & large-cap equity and is managed with a systematic bias to the value factor

Our philosophy

  • We believe that markets are inefficient at times ; hence, underlying profitability fundamentals are not always reflected by valuation
  • We seek to determine whether a company’s current valuation is valid by evaluating its sustainable level of profitability
  • Since our approach is fundamentally driven, we focus on the long term
  • We believe that ESG integration enhances the robustness of our research, thus enabling us to take more informed investment decisions

Our process

  • The strategy consistently applies “profitability and valuation” centred on a research-driven process of purchasing potentially undervalued companies with the aim to capture future price appreciation
  • This fundamental, bottom-up approach, integrating ESG criteria analysis, allows the fund manager to identify the companies that the market may be mispricing

HSBC Strengths

  • One common, consistent, transparent “profitability & valuation” approach for equity strategies
  • Strong culture of research and risk management seeking to deliver consistent returns over time

Sustainable Euroland Equity Strategy

Aims to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns with exposure to Eurozone mid & large-cap equity and is managed with a systematic bias to the value factor, combined with a SRI "Best in class" approach

Our philosophy

  • We believe that markets are inefficient at times ; hence, underlying profitability fundamentals are not always reflected by valuation
  • We seek to determine whether a company’s current valuation is valid by evaluating its sustainable level of profitability
  • Since our approach is fundamentally driven, we focus on the long term
  • We believe that ESG integration enhances the robustness of our research, thus enabling us to take more informed investment decisions

Our process

  • We apply a Best-in-class ESG filter to reduce the investment universe prior to applying our standard profitability & valuation approach. The filter seeks to identify higher ESG-rating names within our SRI universe. 4th quartile companies along with the tobacco and weapons sectors are excluded
  • This fundamental, bottom-up approach, integrating ESG analysis, allows the fund manager to identify the companies that the market may be mispricing
