TORONTO, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - To provide investors with enhanced portfolio
diversification opportunities, AIM Trimark Investments today announces the
launch of INVESCO Global Real Estate Fund. Combining investments with low
correlation to each other is a key element of building a well-diversified
portfolio with reduced volatility. Global real estate has historically been an
excellent portfolio diversifier, given its low correlation to the returns of
traditional asset classes.
INVESCO Global Real Estate Fund invests primarily in securities of real
estate and real estate-related companies, including real estate investment
trusts (REIT) from around the world. The Fund focuses on total return through
a combination of capital growth and income.
"We are pleased to make this new investment solution available to
investors by leveraging the global expertise of our partners within INVESCO,"
says Phil Taylor, Senior Managing Director and Head of INVESCO PLC's North
American retail business, including AIM Trimark.
With almost 200 employees worldwide, INVESCO's Real Estate team has
