Introducing the Invesco Global Total Return (EUR) Bond Fund

This flexible bond fund invests without sector, regional or asset class constraints, adapting its asset allocation to reflect changing market conditions.

The opportunity for investors

Following some of the largest ever adjustments in yields, fixed income markets are once again offering attractive return potential.

Bond market volatility has also risen, potentially creating more opportunities for active fund managers with flexible bond products.

Flexibility is our philosophy

Flexible bond funds typically have more flexibility to change asset allocation than traditional fixed income funds.

We align risk and reward through our adaptable and opportunistic bond market allocations. This fund’s broad remit gives us the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities on both a short-term tactical and long-term strategic basis.

Investment risks

  • For complete information on risks, refer to the legal documents. 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. Debt instruments are exposed to credit risk which is the ability of the borrower to repay the interest and capital on the redemption date. Changes in interest rates will result in fluctuations in the value of the fund. The fund uses derivatives (complex instruments) for investment purposes, which may result in the fund being significantly leveraged and may result in large fluctuations in the value of the fund. Investments in debt instruments which are of lower credit quality may result in large fluctuations in the value of the fund. The fund may invest in distressed securities which carry a significant risk of capital loss. The fund may invest extensively in contingent convertible bonds which may result in significant risk of capital loss based on certain trigger events. The Fund may invest in a dynamic way across assets/asset classes, which may result in periodic changes in the risk profile, underperformance and/or higher transaction costs. 

Why this fund?

The fund’s investment objective is to maximise total return, primarily through investment in a flexible allocation of debt securities and cash.

We are free from benchmark constraints, and can actively allocate to corporate bonds, government debt, high yield bonds and cash across fixed income markets globally.

The fund’s flexible strategy is characteristic of our philosophy as an investment team: we only invest when we believe the return potential is sufficient to compensate for the risk. We look to deliver strong performance across a range of market environments.

The fund is classified as Article 8 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).

The investment concerns the acquisition of units in an actively managed fund and not in a given underlying asset.

By taking a flexible approach to duration, we believe we can reduce the impact of rate hikes on portfolio performance and volatility.

Meanwhile, when we think rates look attractive, we aim to take advantage of the returns on offer.

We are free to hold up to 100% in cash and near-cash instruments, where appropriate.

Our time-tested approach is based on fundamental analysis, with a strong emphasis on valuation.

Our 40+ team members have extensive industry experience and have been successfully managing bond funds for 25+ years.

Launched in 2010, this fund has navigated a wide range of market environments. For performance information and KIDs/KIIDs , please refer to the Invesco Global Total Return (EUR) Bond Fund product page
