Philippe Igigabel
Outstanding Portfolio Manager

Philippe Igigabel named as Outstanding Portfolio Manager by Morningstar Europe


The Outstanding Portfolio Manager award honors managers who, in addition to delivering strong returns for investors over their careers, have demonstrated excellent investment skill, the courage to differ from the consensus to benefit investors, and an alignment of interests with the strategies’ investors.

I feel greatly honored by this rare distinction.

Delivering solid and reliable performance to our clients is the ultimate objective of our daily efforts. Having such an eminent institution as Morningstar estimating that this objective has been fulfilled is a source of great satisfaction.

Going forward I will strive to live up to the high expectations that such an award bring with it.

Philippe Igigabel, CFA, Fixed Income Portfolio Manager at HSBC Global Asset Management

Following this award, Xavier Baraton, Global CIO, Fixed Income, Private Debt and Alternatives at HSBC Global Asset Management highlighted that:

Over more than 15 years, Philippe has developed and exploited a consistent yet adaptive process, combining careful issuer selection, precise understanding of macro and credit cycles and robust portfolio construction.

Philippe best personifies Investment Excellence, at the heart of HSBC Asset Management, and I am delighted that his outstanding work in high yield investing be rewarded by this prestigious award.

Key risks: capital loss risk, credit risk, liquidity risk, interest rate, derivatives risk, counterparty risk.
Synthetic Risk and Reward Indicator (SRRI) *: 4/7. Do not run any unnecessary risk. Read the Key Investor Information Document. The rating is based on price volatility over the last five years, and is an indicator of absolute risk. Historical data may not be a reliable indication for the future. The value of an investment, and any income from it, may fall as well as rise, and you may not get back the amount you originally invested. The rating is not guaranteed to remain unchanged and the categorisation may shift over time. The lowest rating does not mean a risk-free investment.

Main risks associated with HSBC GIF Euro High Yield Bond :

The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

Capital risk - It is important to remember that the value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and is not guaranteed.
High yield risk - Please note that the fund is invested in High Yield issues, which represent a higher risk of default compared to Investment Grade issues.
Derivatives risk - The value of derivative contracts is dependent upon the performance of an underlying asset. A small movement in the value of the underlying can cause a large movement in the value of the derivative. Unlike exchange traded derivatives, over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives have credit risk associated with the counterparty or institution facilitating the trade.
Interest rate risk - As interest rates rise debt securities will fall in value. The value of debt securities is inversely proportional to interest rate movements.
Credit risk - Issuers of debt securities may fail to meet their regular interest and/or capital repayment obligations. All credit instruments therefore have potential for default. Issuers of debt securities may fail to meet their regular interest and/or capital repayment obligations. All credit instruments therefore have potential for default. Higher yielding securities are more likely to default.
Liquidity risk - Liquidity is a measure of how easily an investment can be converted to cash without a loss of capital and/or income in the process. The value of assets may be significantly impacted by liquidity risk during adverse market conditions.
Counterparty risk - The fund is exposed to Over the Counter (OTC) markets for all or part of its total assets. The fund will therefore be subject to the risk that its direct counterparty will not perform its obligations under the OTC transactions and that the fund will sustain losses.

Futher information can be found in the prospectus and key investor information document (KIID).

Swing pricing: The fund uses the swing principle calculation method which determines the net asset value of the fund. Swing pricing allows investment funds to pay the daily transaction costs arising from subscription and redemptions by incoming and outgoing investors. The aim of swing pricing is to reduce the dilution effect generated when, for example, major redemptions in a fund force its manager to sell the underlying assets of the fund. These sales of assets generate transaction costs and taxes, also significant, which impact the value of the fund and all its investors.
Gates: The fund has a redemption threshold (gate), the level at which the manager of an undertaking for collective investment in transferable securities can stagger the redemption of securities instead of proceeding immediately.
