Ready-made portfolios

The HSBC Global Strategy Portfolios contain a mix of investments that are managed on your behalf.

Take the hassle out of investing

New to investing, or just looking for a more convenient way to invest? Choose an HSBC ready-made portfolio – a fund with a mix of investments that's managed on your behalf.

Each portfolio has a different level of risk and expected reward. Just select your preferred level of risk and our team of experts will take care of the rest.

Before you invest, you should build up 3-6 months of living costs to fall back on, so that you're less likely to dip into your investment to cover for anything unexpected.  

Remember, investing has its ups and downs and – so you could get back less than you invest.
