TORONTO, Jan. 15, 2019 /CNW/ - Invesco Canada announced that securityholders have approved the firm's proposed enhancements to Invesco S&P International Developed Low Volatility Index ETF (ILV) at a special meeting held in Toronto today.

Korea Low Volatility Index, or any successor thereto, on an unhedged basis, in the case of any unhedged units, or on a hedged basis, in the case of any hedged units. ILV invests, directly or indirectly, primarily in low volatility equity securities of companies located in developed markets within the Europe and Asia Pacific regions, excluding Korea.

Some ETFs seek to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the applicable index, and are not actively managed. This means that the sub-advisor will not attempt to take defensive positions in declining markets and the ETF will continue to provide exposure to each of the securities in the index regardless of whether the financial condition of one or more issuers of securities in the index deteriorates. In contrast, if an ETF is actively managed, then the sub-advisor has discretion to adjust that ETF's holdings in accordance with the ETF's investment objectives and strategies.
