Fixed income bonds

The world is your investment opportunity with bonds

Discover international bonds

HSBC offers customers a selection of international bonds from the US, Eurozone, Middle East and Asia. These bonds are issued by governments and corporates from different countries and industries. The bonds are denominated in different currencies USD, GBP or EUR. These bonds have varying yields and maturities.

Benefits

  • Enjoy a regular income stream

    Bonds may be suitable for you should you prefer to receive stable income on your capital throughout the tenor of the bond.

  • Diversify your investment risk

    Diversification is important because different asset classes respond differently to different market conditions. The inclusion of bonds may lower the overall risk of a portfolio, as they tend to have a lower volatility to certain asset classes, such as equities.

  • Reap potential long-term gain

    Bonds offer the potential to make capital gain by selling them if they appreciate in market value.

More about Fixed Income Bonds

What are bonds?

Bonds refer to debt securities issued by governments, government-related entities or corporations. The issuer of the bonds generally pays you income at a specified rate on specific dates during the term of the bonds and, subject to risks set out in the relevant bond prospectus, promises to repay the face value of the bonds on maturity.

Why invest in bonds?

Fixed income products such as bonds are important if you are aiming for a balanced portfolio of investments. Due to their relatively lower volatility compared to equities, bonds can add stability and diversify your investment portfolio. They may also provide a regular stream of fixed income returns and potentially grow your capital in the long term.

Understanding risks

Default Risk

In the event of default by the issuer, you may lose all your invested capital and/or any coupon/profit payment.

Exchange rate risk

Investing in assets denominated in a foreign currency exposes the value of the investment to exchange rate fluctuations, which may increase or decrease the value of your initial investment.

Liquidity Risk

If you choose to redeem the investment prior to the maturity date, we will redeem your investment subject to liquidity of the Bond/Sukuk. HSBC will not be liable if a transaction cannot be executed due to lack of liquidity.
