The asset management business of HSBC has set out plans to cut investments in thermal coal, months after one of its former top executives caused a furore with his comments about climate change. 


The investment division of the FTSE 100 bank gave a timetable for removing companies that make money from the polluting fuel from its actively managed holdings by 2040. 

Its active fund managers will also immediately stop investing in new bonds or the stock market flotations of companies that are expanding their thermal coal operations.

UK and European stocks traded lower as investors digested news from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Oil rebounded on after sliding 1% in the previous session as concerns over tight supplies heading into winter eclipsed fears of a global recession.

Gold prices fell 1% as the U.S. dollar rallied and the Federal Reserve flagged more large rate hikes, diminishing the zero-yielding metal’s appeal.
