Invesco Core Plus Bond Portfolio

Individual | Fixed Income

Objective

The Invesco Core Plus Bond Portfolio seeks total return, comprised of current income and capital appreciation.

Strategy

The portfolio is an actively managed, high-quality bond strategy that seeks to deliver income and growth potential.

  • Complement to stocks. Adding high-quality bonds to a portfolio may help provide income and diversify equity risk, helping investors weather challenging markets.
  • Quality income. To seek stability, the strategy is built on a foundation of high-quality corporate and government bonds. At least 80% of the portfolio is allocated to investment grade bonds.
  • Growth and diversification. The portfolio can complement its high-quality core with a variety of opportunities, including high yield, emerging markets, non-US dollar-denominated and other sector bonds. These high-conviction opportunities carry additional risks (for example, foreign markets can be volatile, and high yield bonds involve a greater risk of fluctuating value and default than high-quality bonds). However, they also provide the potential for additional income and growth.

Diversification does not guarantee a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.

The performance quoted is past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an account owner’s units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data shown. Performance figures reflect reinvested distributions of the underlying security/securities and changes in net asset value (NAV). Class A Unit performance at load is shown at the maximum sales charge. Performance shown at NAV does not include applicable CDSC or front-end sales charges, which would have reduced the performance. Returns less than one year are cumulative; all others are annualized.

 About risk

Risks of the Underlying Holding

An issuer may be unable to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer's credit rating.

Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.

The risks of investing in securities of foreign issuers, including emerging market issuers, can include fluctuations in foreign currencies, political and economic instability, and foreign taxation issues.

Junk bonds involve a greater risk of default or price changes due to changes in the issuer's credit quality. The values of junk bonds fluctuate more than those of high quality bonds and can decline significantly over short time periods.

Mortgage- and asset-backed securities are subject to prepayment or call risk, which is the risk that the borrower's payments may be received earlier or later than expected due to changes in prepayment rates on underlying loans. Securities may be prepaid at a price less than the original purchase value.

Derivatives may be more volatile and less liquid than traditional investments and are subject to market, interest rate, credit, leverage, counterparty and management risks. An investment in a derivative could lose more than the cash amount invested.

The Portfolio is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current Program Description for more information regarding the risks associated with an investment in the Portfolio.
