The focus of this fund is on income. The flexibility we have to invest in equities can be very helpful in this regard as sometimes the income available in stocks relative to bonds can offer a more attractive option.”
Paul Read, fund manager
Why the Invesco Pan European High Income Fund?
Many of the largest, high-yield companies are headquartered in Europe. These businesses have been generating profits, even in the challenging market environments of the past years. Investing in these companies offers the opportunity to partake of their success. We believe that a European equity fund presents an integral part of a well-diversified portfolio for investors thinking for the long term.
Combining equities and fixed income
The fund can access what the fund managers believe to be the best opportunities for income and capital growth. While bond interest will normally provide most of the income in the fund, equity dividends can offer an attractive alternative.
Focus on income
The fund offers a relatively high income, in comparison to investment grade corporate bonds, with the potential for longer term capital growth and typically lower duration.
Active, market-driven approach
The team's investment approach is informal, iterative and flexible. They are exploiting opportunities on a short-term as well as a longer-term basis. Risk can quickly be reduced if the market environment warrants a more cautions allocation.
Paul Read and Paul Causer are fund managers of the year 2013 for European bonds. They are managing the fixed income portion of the fund and are responsible for the asset allocation. The equity portion is managed by Stephanie Butcher.
