HSBC Mutual Fund

HSBC Mutual Fund

Part of HSBC Securities and Capital Markets (India) Private Limited, HSBC Mutual Fund is one of the leading AMCs in the investment market of the country. Being a part of the 7th largest bank in the world, it offers international quality investment options and services to prospective investors across the nation.

HSBC Mutual Fund serves more than 1 million customers through its 1000 plus offices spread all over India. It operates with a total corpus of Rs. 12637.24 Crore as of 2022, and offers more than 103 different types of schemes under three types of options, equity, debt, and product add-on funds.

An abbreviation of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, the HSBC empire is over 100 years old and was established by Sir Thomas Sutherland in 1886. It is the world’s 7th largest bank in terms of total assets and revenues. Although it is owned by the British, it has an unbeatable track record in wealth and asset management in South Asia too, besides retail and corporate banking.

Given the unpredictable atmosphere in Hong Kong over the ‘One Nation Two System’ norm, HSBC was though to face stiff resistance in entering the Mutual Funds business in India. That, however, did not happen because of their excellent track record in almost every department of banking.

The HSBC empire has more than 100 million active customers all over the world in every continent except the Polar regions. It has a total market capitalisation of more than £102.7 billion as of the end of 2018. It is the second largest company which is listed on London’s Stock Exchange behind only Royal Dutch Shell.

These figures are sufficient to prove the antecedents of their Mutual Funds business. All their businesses in this sector in India are controlled by their wholly-owned subsidiary, the HSBC Asset Management (India) Private Limited.

HSBC’s India business is one of their biggest assets and it has bigger plans for further growth in South East Asia too.

HSBC’s Mutual Fund house was set up in accordance with the Indian Trusts Act of 1882. Its registration number for the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Mutual Funds) under SEBI’s guidelines is MF/046/02/5 (dated May 27, 2002).
