Invesco Unit Trusts offers a portfolio that seeks to provide above-average total return by investing in a portfolio common stocks of closed-end investment companies (known as "closed-end funds") that invest in various global fixed income securities. These closed-end funds may invest in a wide range of sectors and strategies such as global bonds, emerging markets bonds, senior loans, high yield bonds, and other total return strategies.
In selecting securities for the Portfolio, Invesco sought to invest in funds representative of asset classes with generally attractive levels of income. Invesco assembled the final portfolio based on factors including valuation, current yield, share price at a discount to net asset value, credit quality and asset class mix of each of the underlying funds.

There is no assurance that a unit investment trust will achieve its investment objective. An investment in this unit trust is subject to market risk, which is the possibility that the market values of securities owned by the trust will decline and that the value of trust units may therefore be less than what you paid for them. This trust is unmanaged and its portfolio is not intended to change during the trust's life except in limited circumstances. Accordingly, you can lose money investing in this trust.
The portfolio invests in shares of closed-end funds. Shares closed-end funds are subject to risks related to factors such as the manager's ability to achieve a fund's objective, market conditions affecting a fund's investments and use of leverage. The portfolio and the underlying funds have management and operating expenses.
You will bear not only your share of the trust's expenses, but also those of the underlying funds. By investing in other funds, the trust incurs greater expenses than you would incur if you invested directly in the funds.
Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value in the secondary market and the net asset value of closed-end fund shares may decrease.
The yield on funds which invest in bonds will generally decline in a falling interest rate environment and increase in a rising interest rate environment.
Certain of the funds may employ the use of leverage in their portfolios. While leverage often increases the yield of a fund, it also increases risks, including the likelihood of increased volatility and the possibility that the fund's common share income will fall if the dividend rate on the preferred shares or the interest rate on any borrowings rises.
Certain of the funds may invest in high yield bonds which are generally below investment grade quality ("junk" bonds). Investing in such bonds should be viewed as speculative and you should review your ability to assume the risks associated with investments which utilize such bonds. Junk bonds are subject to numerous risks including higher interest rates, economic recession, deterioration of the junk bond market, possible downgrades and defaults of interest and/or principal. Junk bond prices tend to fluctuate more than higher rated bonds and are affected by short-term credit developments to a greater degree.
Certain of the closed-end funds held by the Portfolio invest in senior loans. Although senior loans in which the closed-end funds invest may be secured by specific collateral, there can be no assurance that liquidation of collateral would satisfy the borrower's obligation in the event of nonpayment of scheduled principal or interest or that such collateral could be readily liquidated. Senior loans in which the closed-end funds invest generally are of below investment grade credit quality, may be unrated at the time of investment, generally are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission or any state securities commission, and generally are not listed on any securities exchange. In addition, the amount of public information available on senior loans generally is less extensive than that available for other types of assets.
Certain of the closed-end funds held by the Portfolio invest in convertible securities. Convertible securities generally offer lower interest or dividend yields than non-convertible fixed-income securities of similar credit quality because of the potential for capital appreciation. The market value of a convertible security may be affected not only by changes in interest rates, but also by changes in the market price of a convertible security issuer's common stock. Convertible securities fall below the debt obligations of the same issuer in order of preference or priority in the event of a liquidation and are typically unrated or rated lower than such debt obligations.
A security issuer may be unable to make interest and/or principal payments in the future. This may reduce the level of dividends a closed-end fund pays which would reduce your income and cause the value of your units to fall.
The closed-end funds may invest in securities of foreign issuers, presenting risks beyond those of U.S. issuers. These risks may include market and political factors related to an issuer's foreign market, international trade conditions, less regulation, smaller or less liquid markets, increased volatility, differing accounting and tax practices and changes in the value of foreign currencies which may have both economic and tax consequences.
The financial condition of a security issuer may worsen or its credit ratings may drop, resulting in a reduction in the value of your Units. This may occur at any point in time, including during the primary offering period.
