Introducing the Invesco Corporate Bond Fund

Introducing the Invesco Corporate Bond Fund (UK)

We look for good quality companies and invest in their investment grade debt. Without benchmark or duration constraints, we’re free to adapt to changing market conditions.

Compelling income opportunity

Bonds are now offering income opportunities not seen since the global financial crisis. And investors aren’t having to take on too much credit risk to gain exposure to these, with companies having entered this period with reasonable balance sheet strength.

A long history of corporate bond investing

This fund’s track record is over 25 years long – one of the longest in the industry. Over this time, our fund managers have shown their expertise in managing credit and interest rate risk.

We combine a top-down assessment of market valuations with the fundamental research of our experienced credit analyst team. Our focus is on delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns.

We follow a benchmark-agnostic investment process, which gives us the flexibility to adapt to changing market conditions. We actively manage credit and duration risk, exploiting opportunities on a short-term tactical and long-term strategic basis.

Why this fund?

We carry out thorough credit analysis, combining internal and external research, to find good quality companies with attractively valued bonds. The aim is to maximise returns through acceptable and well-understood credit risk exposure.

We consider the risk/return profile of any bond relative to cash, core government bonds and the rest of the fixed income universe. We only take risks that we feel will be adequately rewarded.

Our approach is flexible, pragmatic and market driven. We focus on absolute risk and return and are not constrained by an index.

Our time-tested approach is based on fundamental analysis, with a strong emphasis on valuation. Our fund managers are supported by a well-resourced team of analysts

Investment risks

  • The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested. The securities that the fund invests in may not always make interest and other payments nor is the solvency of the issuers guaranteed. Market conditions, such as a decrease in market liquidity for the securities in which the fund invests, may mean that the fund may not be able to sell those securities at their true value. These risks increase where the fund invests in high yield or lower credit quality bonds. The fund has the ability to make use of financial derivatives (complex instruments) which may result in the fund being leveraged and can result in large fluctuations in the value of the fund. Leverage on certain types of transactions including derivatives may impair the fund’s liquidity, cause it to liquidate positions at unfavourable times or otherwise cause the fund not to achieve its intended objective. Leverage occurs when the economic exposure created by the use of derivatives is greater than the amount invested resulting in the fund being exposed to a greater loss than the initial investment. The fund may be exposed to counterparty risk should an entity with which the fund does business become insolvent resulting in financial loss. The fund may invest in contingent convertible bonds which may result in significant risk of capital loss based on certain trigger events. The fund’s performance may be adversely affected by variations in interest rates.
