Nicholas Dowell, portfolio manager and TMT Specialist from HSBC Asset Management in London: “The metaverse is seen by many as the next stage in the evolution of the internet, with the effect it has on our daily lives expected to be as impactful as we saw in the early nineties. We see plenty of potential upside in this augmented sector, which is estimated to reach US$800 billion globally by 2024.”
Chris Tang, HSBC Asset Management portfolio manager based in Hong Kong: “We seek investment opportunities globally that are riding the wave of this disruption and benefiting from structural long-term growth of the five key segments we identified. At HSBC, we are strongly backed by a global team of experienced investment managers who excel in navigating and making sense of the dynamic investment and regulatory landscape in the metaverse.”
In February 2020, HSBC combined its retail banking and wealth management, asset management, insurance and private banking businesses to create Wealth and Personal Banking which serves over 39 million customers globally. HSBC’s ambition is to be Asia’s leading wealth manager by 2025, opening up a world of opportunities for Asian, international and HSBC-connected clients. The launch of this discretionary mandate is a collaborative outcome between Global Private Banking and HSBC Asset Management, reflecting our commitment to bring leading and innovative wealth management solutions to our clients in Asia.
