Invesco Global Targeted Returns Fund

Invesco Global Targeted Returns Fund

How do you combine diversification of assets, low volatility and attractive returns? The Invesco Global Targeted Returns Fund takes a special approach to achieving these objectives: It invests in ideas – with no constraints in terms of asset classes, regions or sectors. The clever combination of ideas is also designed to achieve consistent returns at significantly lower levels of risk.

"The only way to achieve real diversification is to break away from asset class constraints."
David Millar, Head of Multi Asset, Invesco Perpetual
 

 
Why the Invesco Global Targeted Returns Fund?

  • An investment in the most attractive ideas
    Free from the limitations of asset classes, the team focuses on attractive ideas. It identifies the most promising investment approaches to profit from these ideas and bundles them in a risk-controlled portfolio. To do this, the fund not only invests in traditional asset classes; it also turns to other options like currencies, inflation, real estate or volatility.
  • Positive returns in any market environment
    Combining various ideas allows the fund management to build a portfolio in which risk is reduced by optimally spreading it across the most diverse assets. Every idea is examined to determine its potential performance in various economic scenarios. The team then analyses the idea's impact on overall portfolio risk. The fund aims to achieve a gross return of 5% p.a. above the three-month call money rate – at less than half of the volatility of equity markets.1
  • The right experts and the right approach
    Invesco Perpetual's Multi Asset Team has a wealth of experience and an impressive track record in managing multi asset funds. With its proven, disciplined investment approach, the team ensures that each idea in the fund has earned its place in the portfolio. In addition, the team can access the expertise of Invesco’s global network to identify and capture new investment ideas.

Investment philosophy

Each investment idea in the fund undergoes a demanding three-level process to earn its place in the portfolio. First, the team analyses the ideas and tests the benefits and risks including asset classes and instruments with which the investment theme can be expressed. The investment ideas are then combined in a second step. With the right mix of risk and return potential in the individual ideas, the team can build a portfolio in which risk is substantially reduced. In the third step, the investment ideas are implemented and reviewed.

Risk warnings

The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange-rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Debt instruments are exposed to credit risk which is the ability of the borrower to repay the interest and capital on the redemption date. The fund will invest in derivatives (complex instruments) which will be significantly leveraged resulting in large fluctuations in the value of the fund. The fund may hold debt instruments which are of lower credit quality and may result in large fluctuations of the value of the fund. The fund may be exposed to counterparty risk should an entity with which the fund does business become insolvent resulting in financial loss. This counterparty risk is reduced by the Manager, through the use of collateral management.

These are the main risks of the fund. For further information please refer to the Key Investor Information Document.
