Online security

What is "Phishing"?

Phishing is when fraudsters try to con individuals to divulge confidential or personal account information by imitating legitimate organizations via spoofed emails and websites. Usually, the emails will contain a hyperlink that takes you to a spoof website that looks very similar to the organization's genuine site. Clicking on a hyperlink may also download malicious software which will record your use of the Internet and forward this information to the fraudsters.

Invesco group is explicitly not responsible for the content of and any damages, losses, costs, claims, liabilities, charges, demands and expenses that arise due to the use of or caused by these spoof websites.

Further, Invesco group cannot be held liable for (i) spreading of any viruses, technical errors, connection interruptions, or (ii) fraudulent acts by third parties, suffered by you while accessing this website, notwithstanding the fact that we do everything reasonable possible to ensure its website’s security.
