Invesco Short Duration Inflation Protected Portfolio

Individual | Fixed Income

Objective

The Invesco Short Duration Inflation Protected Portfolio seeks to provide protection from the negative effects of unanticipated inflation.

Strategy

The portfolio uses short-term bonds to seek to protect against the negative effects of unanticipated inflation, by replicating the performance of the BofA Merrill Lynch 1-5 Year US Inflation-Linked Treasury Index.

  • Ideal for rising rates. Short-term bond prices tend to be less affected by rising rates than their long-term counterparts.
  • A hedge against inflation. A majority of the portfolio's assets are invested in short-term Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) to mitigate the negative impact of inflation.
  • Mitigated risk. TIPS are backed by the full faith and credit of the US government

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.

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.

Because the fund operates as a passively managed index fund, adverse performance of a particular security ordinarily will not result in its elimination from the fund's portfolio. Ordinarily, the Adviser will not sell the fund's portfolio securities except to reflect changes in the securities that comprise the Index, or as may be necessary to raise cash to pay fund shareholders who sell fund shares.

Inflation-indexed securities generally fluctuate in response to changes in real interest rates, and the Fund's income from its investments in these securities is likely to fluctuate considerably more than income distributions on its investments in more traditional fixed-income securities.

The Fund's use of a representative sampling approach will result in its holding a smaller number of securities than are in the Index and in holding securities not included in the Index. As a result, underperformance of securities held by the Fund could result in a greater decline in NAV than would be the case if all of the securities in the Index were held, and the Fund may not track the return of the Index as well as it would have if it held all of the securities in the Index.

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.
