1. HSBC's ESG and Sustainable Investing strategies include impact funds with an ESG or Sustainable objective, thematic funds that seek to invest in ESG or sustainable trends, and strategies that seek to mitigate ESG risks by investing assets with higher ESG performance and/or exclusions of those that are lower ESG performing. Considerations across strategies can include but are not limited to climate/net-zero and/or UN Sustainable Development Goals. For the avoidance of doubt, these assets invested pursuant to the ESG and Sustainable Investing strategies do not necessarily qualify as "sustainable investments" as defined by SFDR or other relevant regulations. The HSBC ESG and Sustainable Investing Framework is an HSBC internal classification framework used to establish ESG and sustainable investing standards and promote consistency across asset classes and business lines where relevant, and should not be relied on to assess the sustainability characteristics of any given product.
2. Out of 97 asset managers assessed by Morningstar, only 25 earned a Morningstar ESG Commitment Level of Advanced in 2023.
