ETF investing FAQs

A strategy that aims to reduce risk by combining different types of investments.

The stocks and shares of publicly traded companies.

The Invesco FTSE All-World UCITS ETF invests in the physical securities of the FTSE All-World Index. This is known as physical replication. 

A physical ETF tracks the index by buying and holding a portfolio of securities that matches the index’s composition. A physical ETF can replicate an index through sampling or full replication.

The ETF holds a sample of securities from the index that are expected to perform similarly to the actual index, known as sampling. The objective of sampling is to replicate the index performance as closely as possible while reducing the costs that would normally be incurred when holding all the securities in the index (full replication).

Including emerging markets can give you exposure to companies that stand to benefit from high growth opportunities. With developed markets your exposure is in more established companies, which tend to have steadier growth patterns. By combining, you’re investing in the best of both worlds.  However, there is a higher degree of risk than for an ETF that invests only in developed markets.

Investment risks

  • For complete information on risk, refer to the legal documents.

    The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested. As a large portion of this fund is invested in less developed countries, investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for an ETF that invests only in developed markets. The Fund may be exposed to the risk of the borrower defaulting on its obligation to return the securities at the end of the loan period and of being unable to sell the collateral provided to it if the borrower defaults. The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by a number of factors including the activities and results of the issuer and general and regional economic and market conditions. This may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund. The Fund may use Stock Connect to access China A Shares traded in Mainland China. This may result in additional liquidity risk and operational risks including settlement and default risks, regulatory risk and system failure risk.
