The Fund aims to provide growth in the long term, which is a period of five years or more.To achieve its objective, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its value in property-related securities and collective investment schemes that, in turn, invest in direct property (physical buildings) and property-related securities. There will be no geographical restrictions.The Fund may also invest up to 20% of its value in money market instruments, deposits, cash and collective investment schemes that invest in such assets to manage day-to-day cash flow requirements.The collective investment schemes in which the Fund may invest will, where possible, be those managed or operated by the HSBC Group.The Fund may invest in derivatives for efficient portfolio management purposes, including hedging. This means investment techniques that aim to reduce risks, reduce costs or generate growth and income. On giving 60 days' notice to Shareholders the Fund may also use derivatives for broader investment purposes to help the Fund meet itsobjective. The Fund does not intend to use derivatives extensively and their use will be consistent with the risk profile of the Fund.The investment strategy aims to provide capital growth by investment into property-related securities in the UK and globally, and in collective investment schemes that invest in direct property (physical buildings) and shares of property-related securities. The Fund will not buy physical buildings directly. The balance between direct property(through collective investment schemes), property-related securities, and cash, and the geographic composition of the portfolio, will vary over time depending on our view of prospective returns.By investing in collective investment schemes that hold direct property (physical buildings) and property-related securities, the fund manager is able to access specialist, local skills. This also provides the scope to change the composition of the Fund quickly and reduce the risk of investing in any one manager.Use of BenchmarkThe Fund is actively managed and is not managed with reference to a benchmark. The performance of the Fund is shown against the performance of a combination of a 50% weighting to the Investment Association UK Direct Property Sector and a 50% weighting to the Investment Association Property Other Sector for comparison purposes only. Prior to 1 September 2018, the performance was compared to the Investment Association Property Sector.This has been selected to enable investors to assess the performance of the Fund because it consists of funds similar to the Fund. Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK investment managers), to help investors to compare funds with broadly similar characteristics.Use of DerivativesThe Fund may invest in exchange traded and over-the-counter derivatives in accordance with Part C and Part D of Appendix 3. In particular, currency forward contracts may be used with the aim of hedging against movements in the rate of exchange between Sterling and the currency in which assets of the Fund may be denominated.
