HSBC Global Asset Management is set to launch a securities lending programme for its European ETF range in March, ETF Stream can reveal.
For the first time, the firm will be able to lend out the underlying securities of its physically-replicated ETFs in return for basis point revenues.
The programme will be managed by HSBC Security Services and will not include either the HSBC S&P 500 UCITS ETF (HSPX) or any of its sustainable ETFs range.
The company said 75% of revenues from the programme will be returned to the investor, with 25% used to cover the fees and expenses to HSBC Securities Services and the company’s ETF management business, HSBC Investment Funds Luxembourg.
