DEF - Invesco Defensive Equity ETF

Equity - US Equity

Product Details

The Invesco Defensive Equity ETF (Fund) is based on the Invesco Defensive Equity Index (Index). The Fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Index. The Index is designed to provide exposure to securities of large-cap US issuers. The Index uses a rules-based approach to select companies that potentially have superior risk-return profiles during periods of stock market weakness while still offering the potential for gains during periods of market strength. The Index is computed using the gross total return, which reflects dividends paid. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced quarterly.

Market returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than performance data quoted. After-tax returns reflect the highest federal income tax rate but exclude state and local taxes. Fund performance reflects applicable fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV. Returns less than one year are cumulative.

As the result of a reorganization on April 6, 2018, the returns presented reflect performance of the Guggenheim predecessor fund. Invesco is not affiliated with Guggenheim.

Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results.


 Risk & Other Information

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund’s return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.

Investments focused in a particular industry or sector are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

The Fund is non-diversified and may experience greater volatility than a more diversified investment.

The fund may engage in frequent trading of its portfolio securities in connection with the rebalancing or adjustment of the Underlying Index.

The Fund seeks to track a quantitative strategy index, which invests in securities comprising an index created by a proprietary quantitative model. The Fund’s return depends on the effectiveness of the model and factors used in the model’s quantitative analysis and the weightings may not accurately predict a security’s value. As a result, the Fund may have a lower return than if it tracked an index based on a fundamental investment strategy, or that did not incorporate quantitative analysis.

The Global Industry Classification Standard was developed by and is the exclusive property and a service mark of MSCI, Inc. and Standard & Poor's.

The Sabrient Defensive Equity Index is composed of stocks selected from a broad universe of US stocks and American depositary receipts (ADRs), based on their risk-return profiles during periods of stock market weakness and return potential during periods of market strength.
