New HSBC ETF on Xetra: companies in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement

A new exchange-traded fund from HSBC Global Asset Management has been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Tuesday.

With the HSBC MSCI Japan Climate Paris Aligned UCITS, investors can participate in the performance of large and medium-sized companies in the Japanese market that contribute to the decarbonisation of the economy.

The companies included in the benchmark index are expected to contribute to reducing carbon emissions by 10 per cent annually and reducing physical risks from extreme weather conditions by at least 50 per cent. Companies that benefit from measures to combat climate change and for which new business opportunities arise as a result are overweighted.

In addition, companies that are not in line with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, are involved in serious ESG-related controversies or are active in the areas of thermal coal, nuclear energy, weapons, gambling, tobacco, and genetically modified organisms are excluded from the index.
