Pool provides true multi-asset diversification
TORONTO, June 1, 2016 /CNW/ - For nearly a decade, historically low interest rates have dampened global market volatility and inflated asset prices; however, with the turn in the interest-rate cycle and divergent monetary policy globally, volatility has returned and uncertainty has become a dominant investment theme.
For investors, it is unclear how to address these fundamental challenges while managing risk and realizing positive returns over the long term.
With these goals in mind, Invesco Canada today announced the launch of Invesco Global Targeted Returns Pool, Series F (the "Pool"), which is available for sale to individuals who qualify as accredited investors.1
The Pool focuses on achieving a positive total return, through capital growth and income in all market conditions over a rolling three-year period, and aims to achieve this with less than half the volatility of global equities, over the same rolling three-year period.2
To achieve this, the investment team dispenses with asset-class labels and instead focuses on a robust three-step approach to create a truly diversified portfolio. It starts with selecting and approving investment ideas from across asset classes and geographies. These ideas are then combined into a single, highly diversified portfolio using a robust, risk-based fund-management framework before being implemented through Invesco's global trading desks.
The strategy was first launched in 2013 and currently has over US$13 billion in assets under management.3 It is led by David Millar, Head of Invesco Multi Asset, and Portfolio Managers Dave Jubb and Richard Batty, each with over 20 years of investment experience. The team operates out of the Invesco Perpetual office in Henley-on-Thames, U.K.
"We believe that the only way to achieve true diversification is to break away from the focus on asset-class constraints," says Millar. "We're targeting a positive return in line with risk-asset returns over the long term for our clients, but, more important, we're aiming to deliver that return with less than half of the volatility of global equities."
The Pool invests substantially all of its assets in Invesco Global Targeted Returns Fund, a Luxembourg-registered SICAV with UCIT status.
There is no guarantee this return or volatility target will be achieved.
Represents worldwide assets of all vehicles of the strategy, as at March 31, 2016.
