1 Risk-based allocation - Since the fund will make significant use of derivatives in implementing investment ideas, measuring the contribution of each idea to portfolio risk is a better reflection of how the fund is invested.

2 Independent risk - The potential volatility, as measured by the standard deviation, that could result from the implementation of individual investment ideas.

3 Portfolio risk is the potential volatility that results from combining the individual investment ideas into a single portfolio.

 About risk

Commodity Risk. The Fund may from time to time have significant investment exposure to the commodities markets and/or a particular sector of the commodities markets, which may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities, such as stocks and bonds. The commodities markets may fluctuate widely based on a variety of factors, including changes in overall market movements, domestic and foreign political and economic events and policies, war, acts of terrorism, changes in domestic or foreign interest rates and/or investor expectations concerning interest rates, domestic and foreign inflation rates and investment and trading activities of mutual funds, hedge funds and commodities funds. Prices of various commodities may also be affected by factors such as drought, floods, weather, livestock disease, embargoes, tariffs and other regulatory developments. The prices of commodities can also fluctuate widely due to supply and demand disruptions in major producing or consuming regions. Because the Fund's performance may be linked to the performance of potentially volatile commodities, investors should be willing to assume the risks of potentially significant fluctuations in the value of the Fund's shares.

Commodity-Linked Notes Risk. The Fund's investments in commodity-linked notes may involve substantial risks, including risk of loss of a significant portion of their principal value. In addition to risks associated with the underlying commodities, they may be subject to additional special risks, such as the lack of a secondary trading market and temporary price distortions due to speculators and/or the continuous rolling over of futures contracts underlying the notes. Commodity-linked notes are also subject to counterparty risk, which is the risk that the other party to the contract will not fulfill its contractual obligation to complete the transaction with the Fund.

Credit Risk. The issuer of instruments in which the Fund invests 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.

Currency/Exchange Rate Risk. The dollar value of the Fund's foreign investments will be affected by changes in the exchange rates between the dollar and the currencies in which those investments are traded.

Debt Securities Risk. The Fund may invest in debt securities that are affected by changing interest rates and changes in their effective maturities and credit quality.

Derivatives Risk. The performance of derivative instruments is tied to the performance of an underlying currency, security, index, commodity or other asset. In addition to risks relating to their underlying assets, the use of derivatives may include other, possibly greater, risks. Derivatives involve costs, may be volatile, and may involve a small initial investment relative to the risk assumed. Risks associated with the use of derivatives may include counterparty, margin, leverage, correlation, liquidity, tax, market, interest rate and management risks, as well as the risk of potential increased regulation of derivatives. Derivatives may also be more difficult to purchase, sell or value than other investments. The Fund may lose more than the cash amount invested on investments in derivatives. Each of these risks is greater for the Fund than most other mutual funds because the Fund will implement its investment strategy primarily through derivative instruments rather than direct investments in stocks, bonds and other more traditional investments.

Emerging Markets Securities Risk. The prices of securities issued by foreign companies and governments located in emerging markets countries may be affected more negatively by inflation, devaluation of their currencies, higher transaction costs, delays in settlement, adverse political developments, the introduction of capital controls, withholding taxes, nationalization of private assets, expropriation, social unrest, war or lack of timely information than those in developed countries.

Equity Risk. Equity risk is the risk that the value of securities held by the Fund will fall due to general market and economic conditions, perceptions regarding the industries in which the issuers of securities held by the Fund participate or factors relating to specific companies in which the Fund invests, either directly or through derivative instruments. For example, an adverse event, such as an unfavorable earnings report, may depress the value of securities held by the Fund; the price of securities may be particularly sensitive to general movements in the stock market; or a drop in the stock market may depress the price of most or all of the securities held by the Fund. In addition, securities of an issuer in the Fund's portfolio may decline in price if the issuer fails to make anticipated dividend payments because, among other reasons, the issuer of the security experiences a decline in its financial condition.

Exchange-Traded Funds Risk. An investment by the Fund in exchangetraded funds generally presents the same primary risks as an investment in a mutual fund. In addition, an exchange-traded fund may be subject to the following: (1) a discount of the exchange-traded fund's shares to its net asset value; (2) failure to develop an active trading market for the exchange-traded fund's shares; (3) the listing exchange halting trading of the exchange-traded fund's shares; (4) failure of the exchange-traded fund's shares to track the reference asset; and (5) holding troubled securities in the referenced index or basket of investments. Exchangetraded funds may involve duplication of management fees and certain other expenses, as the Fund indirectly bears its proportionate share of any expenses paid by the exchange-traded funds in which it invests. Further, certain of the exchange-traded funds in which the Fund may invest are leveraged. The more the Fund invests in such leveraged exchange-traded funds, the more this leverage will magnify any losses on those investments.

Exchange-Traded Notes Risk. Exchange-traded notes are subject to credit risk, including the credit risk of the issuer, and the value of the exchange-traded note may drop due to a downgrade in the issuer's credit rating, despite the underlying market benchmark or strategy remaining unchanged. The value of an exchange-traded note may also be influenced by time to maturity, level of supply and demand for the exchange-traded note, volatility and lack of liquidity in the underlying market, changes in the applicable interest rates, changes in the issuer's credit rating, and economic, legal, political, or geographic events that affect the referenced underlying market or strategy. Exchange-traded notes are also subject to counterparty risk.

Foreign Securities Risk. The Fund's foreign investments may be affected by changes in a foreign country's exchange rates, political and social instability, changes in economic or taxation policies, difficulties when enforcing obligations, decreased liquidity, and increased volatility. Foreign companies may be subject to less regulation resulting in less publicly available information about the companies.

Fund of Funds Risk. The Fund's performance depends on the underlying funds in which it invests, and it is subject to the risks of the underlying funds. Market fluctuations may change the target weightings in the underlying funds. The underlying funds may change their investment objectives, policies or practices and may not achieve their investment objectives, all of which may cause the Fund to withdraw its investments therein at a disadvantageous time.

Interest Rate Risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise; conversely, bond prices generally rise as interest rates fall. Specific bonds differ in their sensitivity to changes in interest rates depending on their individual characteristics, including duration.

Investing in the European Union Risk. Many countries in the European Union are susceptible to high economic risks associated with high levels of debt, notably due to investments in sovereign debts of European countries such as Greece, Italy and Spain. One or more member states might exit the European Union, placing its currency and banking system in jeopardy. The European Union faces major issues involving its membership, structure, procedures and policies, including the adoption, abandonment or adjustment of the new constitutional treaty, the European Union's enlargement to the south and east, and resolution of the European Union's problematic fiscal and democratic accountability. Efforts of the member states to further unify their economic and monetary policies may increase the potential for the downward movement of one member state's market to cause a similar effect on other member states' markets. European countries that are part of the European Economic and Monetary Union may be significantly affected by the tight fiscal and monetary controls that the union seeks to impose on its members.

Large Capitalization Company Risk. Larger, more established companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges such as changes in consumer tastes or innovative smaller competitors. Returns on investments in large capitalization companies could trail the returns on investments in smaller companies.

Leverage Risk. Leverage exists when the Fund purchases or sells an instrument or enters into a transaction without investing cash in an amount equal to the full economic exposure of the asset or transaction and the Fund could lose more than it invested. Leverage created from certain types of transactions or instruments, such as derivatives, may impair the Fund's liquidity, cause it to liquidate positions at an unfavorable time, increase volatility or otherwise not achieve its intended objective. The Fund's significant use of derivatives and leverage could, under certain market conditions, cause the Fund's losses to be more significant than other mutual funds and, in extreme market conditions, could cause a complete loss of your investment.

Liquidity Risk. The Fund may hold illiquid securities that it is unable to sell at the preferred time or price and could lose its entire investment in such securities. The Fund's significant use of derivative instruments may cause liquidity risk to be greater than other mutual funds that invest in more traditional assets such as stocks and bonds, which trade on markets with more market participants.

Management Risk. The investment techniques and risk analysis used by the Fund's portfolio managers may not produce the desired results. Because the Fund's investment process relies heavily on its asset allocation process, market movements that are counter to the portfolio managers' expectations may have a significant adverse effect on the Fund's net asset value. Further, the portfolio managers' use of short derivative positions and instruments that provide economic leverage increases the volatility of the Fund's net asset value, which increases the potential of greater losses that may cause the Fund to liquidate positions when it may not be advantageous to do so.

Market Risk. The prices of and the income generated by the Fund's securities may decline in response to, among other things, investor sentiment, general economic and market conditions, regional or global instability, and currency and interest rate fluctuations.

Non-Diversification Risk. The Fund is non-diversified and can invest a greater portion of its assets in a small number of issuers or a single issuer. A change in the value of the issuer could affect the value of the Fund more than if it was a diversified fund. Non-diversification may also permit the Fund to invest a greater percentage of its assets in one particular investment strategy than would be permitted if the Fund was diversified, thereby increasing the risk of losses in the Fund due to a single strategy.

Short Sales Risk. Short sales may cause the Fund to repurchase a security at a higher price, thereby causing a loss. As there is no limit on how much the price of the security can increase, the Fund's exposure is unlimited.

Small- and Mid-Capitalization Risks. Stocks of small- and mid-sized companies tend to be more vulnerable to adverse developments in the above factors and may have little or no operating history or track record of success, and limited product lines, markets, management and financial resources. The securities of small- and mid-sized companies may be more volatile due to less market interest and less publicly available information about the issuer. They also may be illiquid or restricted as to resale, or may trade less frequently and in smaller volumes, all of which may cause difficulty when establishing or closing a position at a desirable price.

Subsidiary Risk. By investing in the Subsidiary, the Fund is indirectly exposed to risks associated with the Subsidiary's investments. The Subsidiary is not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (1940 Act), and, except as otherwise noted in this prospectus is not subject to the investor protections of the 1940 Act. Changes in the laws of the United States and/or the Cayman Islands, under which the Fund and the Subsidiary, respectively, are organized, could result in the inability of the Fund and/or the Subsidiary to operate as described in this prospectus and could negatively affect the Fund and its shareholders.

Tax Risk. The tax treatment of commodity-linked and other derivative instruments may be adversely affected by changes in legislation, regulations or other legally binding authority. If, as a result of any such adverse action, the income of the Fund from certain commodity-linked or other derivatives was treated as non-qualifying income, the Fund might fail to qualify as a regulated investment company and be subject to federal income tax at the Fund level. The Internal Revenue Service has issued a number of private letter rulings to other mutual funds, including to another Invesco fund (upon which only the fund that received the private letter ruling can rely), which indicate that income from a fund's investment in certain commodity-linked notes and a wholly owned foreign subsidiary that invests in commodity-linked derivatives, such as the Subsidiary, constitutes qualifying income. However, the Internal Revenue Service suspended issuance of any further private letter rulings in July 2011 pending a review of its position. Should the Internal Revenue Service issue guidance, or Congress enact legislation, that adversely affects the tax treatment of the Fund's use of commodity-linked notes or the Subsidiary (which guidance might be applied to the Fund retroactively), it could limit the Fund's ability to pursue its investment strategy and the Fund might not qualify as a regulated investment company for one or more years. In this event, the Fund's Board of Trustees (the Board) may authorize a significant change in investment strategy or Fund liquidation. The Fund also may incur transaction and other costs to comply with any new or additional guidance from the Internal Revenue Service.

U.S. Government Obligations Risk. The Fund may invest in obligations issued by U.S. Government agencies and instrumentalities that may receive varying levels of support from the government, which could affect the Fund's ability to recover should they default.

Volatility Risk. The Fund may have investments that appreciate or decrease significantly in value over short periods of time. This may cause the Fund's net asset value per share to experience significant increases or declines in value over short periods of time.
