Invesco Podcast: European Income – Financials, Healthcare & Telecoms

  • |
  • 21 mins 49 secs

In the latest Invesco Podcast Ben Gutteridge, Director of Model Portfolio Services, speaks to Oliver Collin, a European Equity Fund Manager.

The discussion begins with some analysis of the European policy response to the coronacrisis, though the key focus for the discussion is an assessment of the opportunity in Europe’s key income paying sectors including Banks, Insurance, Pharma and Telecoms.

Funds that are covered:

Investment risks  

Invesco European Equity Income Fund (UK)

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 fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) in an attempt to reduce the overall risk of its investments, reduce the costs of investing and/or generate additional capital or income, although this may not be achieved. The use of such complex instruments may result in greater fluctuations of the value of the fund. The Manager, however, will ensure that the use of derivatives within the fund does not materially alter the overall risk profile of the fund.

As one of the key objectives of the fund is to provide income, the ongoing charge is taken from capital rather than income. This can erode capital and reduce the potential for capital growth.

Although the Fund invests mainly in established markets, it can invest in emerging and developing markets, where there is potential for a decrease in market liquidity, which may mean that it is not easy to buy or sell securities. There may also be difficulties in dealing and settlement, and custody problems could arise.
