Fixed Income

Cashflow Driven Investment

Invesco has been building multi-asset solutions with a focus on income generation for over 20 years. We work with clients to understand their de-risking objectives and build bespoke solutions to help them achieve their goals.


Cashflow Driven Investment (CDI) solutions focus on sourcing and delivering income with more certainty to meet liabilities as they fall due. This can be achieved by holding a mix of public and private assets which deliver a combination of stable income and long-term cashflows. We believe that schemes can de-risk to a greater extent, over a shorter period of time, by implementing a global multi-asset solution. We focus on three key types of strategy:

Investment process

We work with each client to understand their individual objectives.

Our focus is on delivering an optimal solution which can incorporate existing assets and decisions and provide an independent view to support the best outcome for our clients.

  • Initial assessment: It is important to understand the current risk and return profile – this may uncover improvements that can be made simply by varying the existing asset mix or hedging levels.  This can be illustrated by an “efficient frontier”.
  • Diverse global opportunity set: We encourage clients to consider a wide and diverse opportunity set, beyond traditional fixed income, and identify assets consistent with their investment beliefs and long-term objectives.  Invesco’s analytics tool, Vision, enables us to assess which assets can deliver higher returns, for the same level of risk or reduce risk without adversely impacting expected returns.
  • Multi-period optimisation: We are able to assess the evolution of a pension scheme’s strategy over multiple time periods and incorporate a range of potential de-risking paths when designing a solution.
  • Security selection: Superior security-level expertise is the key to building best in class hold to maturity fixed income portfolios.  Material value can be lost by investing passively in areas where informational advantages are available. For example, Invesco has one of the largest senior secured loans teams in the world, giving us significant sourcing, diligence and execution advantage in private markets.
  • Risk management: Robust risk management requires a holistic approach. When managing CDI solutions, we pay particular attention to the  risks associated with hedging, liquidity and cash management to ensure the strategy is resilient to cope with a wide range of market conditions.
