How far could your investment travel?

Transcript

It’s a big world out there - so how and where do you begin to invest? It’s an important decision for you now, and for the future.

Our Invesco FTSE All-World UCITS ETF offers you exposure to the stocks of over 4,000 companies, across 49 developed and emerging countries, in one simple low-cost ETF.

Get on board and see how far your investment could travel.

Whatever your financial objectives are, your personal circumstances will help determine how much you invest, for how long, and how much risk you’re willing to take. Equities aren’t suitable for everyone, but they’ve helped many investors like you reach their financial objectives.

That’s important when you’re saving for the future. However, it’s essential to understand there are no guarantees, equities can go down as well as up. That’s where diversification comes in.

Diversification means spreading your investment around. For instance, investing in different types of companies, and in different countries.

Our ETF will be taking in companies from 49 countries, spanning Europe, North America, Asia, South America, Australia and South Africa.

Look to your left and you’ll see some of the world’s most developed countries, home to big household names that have been growing steadily for decades - as well as up-and-comers in new and exciting industries.

On your right there are rapidly growing emerging markets. You’ll see younger companies that you may not have heard of - but are quickly becoming market leaders due to opportunities in their bustling economies. You don’t have to choose between developed and emerging markets. With our ETF, we give you the best of both worlds.

Investing for the long term shouldn’t cost you the earth. After all, it’s your money you’re investing. You should be able to keep as much of it as possible.

With the Invesco FTSE All-World UCITS ETF, gaining exposure to the world couldn’t be easier - or more cost efficient. For investment advice, speak to your financial adviser.

FTSE All-World FAQs

A strategy that aims to reduce risk by combining different types of investments, such as equities. Equities are the stocks and shares of publicly traded companies.

The Invesco FTSE All-World UCITS ETF invests in the physical securities of the FTSE All-World Index. This is known as physical replication. 

The ETF holds a sample of securities from the index that are expected to perform similarly to the actual index, known as sampling. The objective of sampling is to replicate the index performance as closely as possible while reducing the costs that would normally be incurred when holding all the securities in the index (full replication).

Including emerging markets can give you exposure to companies that stand to benefit from high growth opportunities. With developed markets your exposure is in more established companies, which tend to have steadier growth patterns. By combining, you’re investing in the best of both worlds.  However, there is a higher degree of risk than for an ETF that invests only in developed markets.

Accumulating  a fund reinvests income received back into the fund, no income is distributed to investors.

Income – Income generated from investments made by the fund is paid out to investors on a pre-determined basis, for example quarterly.

An investor can look to reduce the impact of currency fluctuations on investment performance by investing in currency hedged versions of a particular fund.

Investment risks

  • For complete information on risk, 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. As a large portion of this fund is invested in less developed countries, investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for an ETF that invests only in developed markets. The Fund may be exposed to the risk of the borrower defaulting on its obligation to return the securities at the end of the loan period and of being unable to sell the collateral provided to it if the borrower defaults. The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by a number of factors including the activities and results of the issuer and general and regional economic and market conditions. This may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund. The Fund may use Stock Connect to access China A Shares traded in Mainland China. This may result in additional liquidity risk and operational risks including settlement and default risks, regulatory risk and system failure risk.
