Upcoming change to investment policy

From 14 August 2020, the investment objective and policy of the Invesco Asia Balanced fund will be changed with a view to reduce downward risks and volatility, stabilise risk-adjusted returns and optimise income delivery by introducing the use of a risk management overlay. Under exceptional circumstances (e.g. market crash or major crisis), the Invesco Asia Balanced fund may be positioned defensively with up to 100% of its NAV in cash, cash equivalent, short term debt securities, other Money Market Instruments as well as other Transferable Securities, which are expected to have a low correlation to traditional equity and debt indices. As a result of the above changes and notably the use of risk management overlay, the Invesco Asia Balanced fund will use derivative instruments for investment purposes as well as for efficient portfolio management and hedging purposes. Such investment will however be restricted to 40% of the NAV of the Invesco Asia Balanced fund, as measured by the commitment approach.
