Standard Chartered Hong Kong said it will begin offering the Amundi Asia Funds – Signature CIO Funds based on the views of its group chief investment office led by chief investment officer Steve Brice to its retail clients.
The funds, which are developed in partnership with Amundi, comprise a series of SFC-authorised, multi-asset funds. They are constructed to offer sustainable risk-adjusted returns, capitalising on near-term market or economic conditions, which will be reviewed and rebalanced regularly.
Retail investors will have access to four globally diversified multi-asset fund of funds and ETFs portfolios. They are the Signature CIO Income Fund, the Signature CIO Conservative Fund, the Signature CIO Balanced Fund and the Signature CIO Growth Fund.
“The Signature CIO Funds synergise the strength of Standard Chartered and our strategic partner in developing relevant investment solutions for our clients. It is encouraging to see investment sentiment gradually improve since Mainland China’s boundary reopening, this is reflected in the marked increase in fund transaction volumes compared to the last quarter,” said Alson Ho, head of wealth management for Hong Kong at Standard Chartered.
“We are glad to partner with Standard Chartered to contribute Amundi’s global asset management expertise to the funds, catering to investment needs of Hong Kong investors. The Signature CIO Funds join best of both worlds to offer retail clients with the ability to access a diverse set of asset classes and investment strategies,” said Kerry Ching, chief executive officer of Amundi Hong Kong.
