Invesco FTSE RAFI Developed Markets ex-US Portfolio

Individual | Equity

Objective

The Invesco FTSE RAFI Developing Markets ex-U.S. Portfolio seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the FTSE RAFI Developed ex U.S. 1000 Index.

The FTSE RAFI Developed ex U.S. 1000 Index is designed to track the performance of the largest developed market equities (excluding the US), selected based on the following four fundamental measures of firm size: book value, cash flow, sales and dividends. The equities with the highest fundamental strength are weighted according to their fundamental scores. The Index is computed using the net return, which withholds applicable taxes for non-resident investors. The Portfolio and the Index are reconstituted annually.

Strategy

The portfolio offers exposure to the performance of the largest developed market equities (excluding the US), selected based on four fundamental measures of firm size.

  • Focus on fundamentals. The holdings in the portfolio are weighted on four fundamental measures of company size: book value, cash flow, sales and dividends. This is in contrast to traditional market-cap-weighted indexes, which focus solely on price.
  • Disciplined rebalancing process. Through disciplined rebalancing, the portfolio severs the link between a stock's price and its weight in the portfolio. This approach helps reduce the potential performance drag that can be caused by overweighting overvalued securities and underweighting undervalued securities.
  • Global exposure. The portfolio offers exposure to the performance of the largest developed market equities (ex-US).

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.
