• Unit Trusts are investment products and some may involve derivatives. The investment decision is yours but you should not invest in the Unit Trusts unless the intermediary who sells it to you has explained to you that the product is suitable for you having regard to your financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives
  • Unit Trusts are NOT equivalent to time deposits
  • In the worst case scenario, the value of the unit trusts may be worth substantially less than the original amount you have invested

What are Unit Trusts?

Unit trusts pool the resources of investors into one large fund, which is then divided into shares, or ‘units’. Unit trusts are managed by professional fund managers and have varying levels of risk and return.

Whether you are making your first investment, or adding an investment to your portfolio, at HSBC you can choose from a range of funds to match your attitude to risk and investment goals.
