HSBC enhances liquidity of ETF range
HSBC Global Asset Management has added a second official market maker for its exchange-traded fund product range, ensuring clients have access to full liquidity at the best possible dealing price at any time of day.
Susquehanna International Securities (SIS) will now work in addition to HSBC Global Markets in ensuring liquidity on the HSBC ETF range through being an official market maker, providing continuous bid and offer prices on its 25 physically-replicated ETFs.
Melissa McDonald, global head of equity product at HSBC Global Asset Management says: “This is an important milestone in the development of HSBC ETFs and is a preliminary step to improve liquidity ahead of opening our architecture to multiple authorised participants in order to meet our clients' needs.”
HSBC started its ETF business in August 2009 and has since launched 25 physically-replicated ETFs covering all major emerging and developed world indices.
“This recent development demonstrates HSBC’s commitment to the ETF business which has now reached USD2.7bn, and will be an important contributory factor in our drive for further growth,” McDonald says.
