Local and Foreign Currency Bonds

If you are looking for returns on your local or foreign currency, HSBC offers local and international investment grade bonds with investment terms of 12 months to 10 years to suit your investment needs.

Bonds are issued by governments and corporations and promise to pay a stream of interest payments, usually semi-annually, over the term of the bond, and the face value of the bond on maturity. 

HSBC offers bonds exclusively through the Markets Desk to individuals who are 'wholesale clients' or 'sophisticated investors'1.

If bonds are part of your investment strategy, call the Markets Desk today, the one stop that opens up the world of FX and investment opportunities to you.

Why invest in bonds?

  • Higher returns

    Bonds may provide a higher rate of return than sitting in cash.

  • Source of income

    Bonds pay a stable and regular stream of income, with a predictable repayment of principal at maturity.

  • Capital gains

    Bonds may provide capital appreciation from price increases when market interest rates fall or the perceived creditworthiness of the issuer improves.

  • Diversification

    Bonds may improve the risk to reward characteristics of your investment portfolio.
