These funds aim to empower customers by giving them access to new and exciting investment opportunities whilst offering a diverse range of asset classes.

With these options, customers can tailor their investment portfolios to align with their financial goals and protection needs, ensuring a secure future.

“The new underlying funds seamlessly integrate with our existing investment-linked insurance plans, offering convenience and flexibility for HSBC customers. Whether they seek growth, wealth preservation, or a balanced approach, there is an option to suit every individual,” Allianz Life chief executive officer Charles Ong said in a statement.

“HSBC Malaysia and the Allianz Life team of experienced professionals are available to provide personalised guidance and support to help customers make informed decisions,” he added.

HSBC Malaysia is the exclusive bancassurance distributor for Allianz Life insurance products in the areas of protection, education, retirement, wealth and legacy needs since 2012.

For HSBC Malaysia, the rollout of the two new funds complements the banking group’s holistic wealth planning solutions, which aligns with its wider ambition to become the leading wealth manager in Asia.

These two new investment-linked funds, with underlying funds managed by BlackRock, aim to deliver performance and strategic asset allocation.

BlackRock underscores the significance of the Allianz Life World Healthscience Fund in today’s landscape, emphasising the value of quality healthcare exposure amidst sustained profitability.

The target fund manager remains optimistic about the outlook for quality healthcare equities in 2024, poised to withstand macroeconomic uncertainty.

For the Allianz Life ESG-Integrated Multi Asset Fund, BlackRock highlights the benefits of flexibly managed multi-asset strategies in achieving precise investment outcomes while effectively managing risk and capitalising on diverse opportunities.

The target fund manager stresses the importance of incorporating liquid alternatives within multi-asset portfolios to complement more traditional equity and fixed-income allocations to achieve further diversification and strong risk-adjusted returns in the current market environment.

“Harnessing ageing demographics and sustainable themes like energy transition, which will be some of the mega forces for years to come, creates attractive investment opportunities.

“We are excited to collaborate with Allianz Life to provide global investment exposure across targeted themes and sectors that ride on these trends.

“As the hunt for resilient, quality equities continues to increase in 2024, investors should be looking at adding respective exposures in their portfolios to achieve financial well-being,” said BlackRock Head of Asia Pacific Wealth
Andrew Landman.
