Invesco All Cap Market Neutral Fund

Alternatives | Equity Market Neutral

Objective & Strategy

The fund seeks to provide a positive return over a full market cycle from a broadly diversified portfolio of stocks while seeking to limit exposure to the general risks associated with stock market investing.

Performance driven

The fund attempts to add value by capturing the performance spread between its long and short holdings. In order to identify likely long and short candidates for the fund, the investment team uses its proprietary Stock Selection Model which has a real-time track record of 30 years.

Potential for positive returns whether the stock market is up, down or sideways

Market neutral equity strategy returns are not dependent on the direction of the market. Rather, the key return driver for market neutral equity strategies is the spread earned between the long and short holdings. If, on balance, the portfolio manager can correctly identify industry winners and losers relative to each other, then a market neutral equity strategy will deliver a positive return regardless of market direction.

May help to protect wealth during market sell-offs

Because market neutral strategies typically seek lower volatility than the market, a big drop in equity markets should not influence the strategy’s performance. This contrasts sharply with traditional, benchmark-centric strategies, which typically have very high levels of market exposure and tend to vary similarly to the broader market.

The S&P 500 Index is an unmanaged index considered representative of the U.S. stock market. BarclayHedge Equity Market Neutral Index includes hedge funds that attempt to exploit equity market inefficiencies and usually involves being simultaneously long- and short-matched equity portfolios of the same size within a country. BarclayHedge indexes reflect performance of hedge funds, not of retail investment strategies, and are used for illustrative purposes only solely as  points of reference in evaluating alternative investment strategies. Hedge funds are typically aggressively managed portfolios of investments for high net worth investors that use advanced investment strategies such as leverage, long, short and derivative positions with the goal of generating high returns (either in an absolute sense or over a specified market benchmark). Hedge fund managers have less restriction on their investment methodologies than mutual fund managers, and hedge funds are less regulated and therefore offer less investor protection than mutual funds. Mutual funds are more transparent with regard to disclosure of underlying holdings and have lower fees than hedge funds.

Market volatility can erode a portfolio's value

Since market neutral returns are expected to be independent of the broader equity market, a spike in market-level volatility may not necessarily mean a spike in market neutral volatility.

 About risk

Active Trading Risk. Active trading of portfolio securities may result in added expenses, a lower return and increased tax liability.

Derivatives Risk. The value of a derivative instrument depends largely on (and is derived from) the value of an underlying security, currency, commodity, interest rate, index or other asset (each referred to as an underlying asset). In addition to risks relating to the underlying assets, the use of derivatives may include other, possibly greater, risks, including counterparty, leverage and liquidity risks. Counterparty risk is the risk that the counterparty to the derivative contract will default on its obligation to pay the Fund the amount owed or otherwise perform under the derivative contract. Derivatives create leverage risk because they do not require payment up front equal to the economic exposure created by owning the derivative. As a result, an adverse change in the value of the underlying asset could result in the Fund sustaining a loss that is substantially greater than the amount invested in the derivative, which may make the Fund's returns more volatile and increase the risk of loss. Derivative instruments may also be less liquid than more traditional investments and the Fund may be unable to sell or close out its derivative positions at a desirable time or price. This risk may be more acute under adverse market conditions, during which the Fund may be most in need of liquidating its derivative positions. Derivatives may also be harder to value, less tax efficient and subject to changing government regulation that could impact the Fund's ability to use certain derivatives or their cost. Also, derivatives used for hedging or to gain or limit exposure to a particular market segment may not provide the expected benefits, particularly during adverse market conditions. These risks are 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.

Management Risk. The Fund is actively managed and depends heavily on the Adviser's judgment about markets, interest rates or the attractiveness, relative values, liquidity, or potential appreciation of particular investments made for the Fund's portfolio. The Fund could experience losses if these judgments prove to be incorrect. Additionally, legislative, regulatory, or tax developments may adversely affect management of the Fund and, therefore, the ability of the Fund to achieve its investment objective. In particular, there is no guarantee that the portfolio manager's stock selection process will produce a market neutral portfolio that reduces or eliminates the Fund's exposure to general U.S. stock market risk, sector or industry-specific risk or market capitalization risk. In addition, the Fund's market neutral investment strategy will likely cause the Fund to underperform the broader U.S. equity market during market rallies. Such underperformance could be significant during sudden or significant market rallies.

Market Risk. The market values of the Fund's investments, and therefore the value of the Fund's shares, will go up and down, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. Market risk may affect a single issuer, industry or section of the economy, or it may affect the market as a whole. Individual stock prices tend to go up and down more dramatically than those of certain other types of investments, such as bonds. During a general downturn in the financial markets, multiple asset classes may decline in value. When markets perform well, there can be no assurance that specific investments held by the Fund will rise in value.

Short Position Risk. Because the Fund's potential loss on a short position arises from increases in the value of the asset sold short, the Fund will incur a loss on a short position, which is theoretically unlimited, if the price of the asset sold short increases from the short sale price. The counterparty to a short position or other market factors may prevent the Fund from closing out a short position at a desirable time or price and may reduce or eliminate any gain or result in a loss. In a rising market, the Fund's short positions will cause the Fund to underperform the overall market and its peers that do not engage in shorting. If the Fund holds both long and short positions, and both positions decline simultaneously, the short positions will not provide any buffer (hedge) from declines in value of the Fund's long positions. Certain types of short positions involve leverage, which may exaggerate any losses, potentially more than the actual cost of the investment, and will increase the volatility of the Fund's returns.

Small- and Mid-Capitalization Companies Risks. Small- and mid-capitalization companies tend to be more vulnerable to changing market conditions, may have little or no operating history or track record of success, and may have more limited product lines and markets, less experienced management and fewer financial resources than larger companies. These companies' securities may be more volatile and less liquid than those of more established companies, and their returns may vary, sometimes significantly, from the overall securities market.
