Past performance is not a guide to future returns. Source: Invesco as at 31 March 2019. Fund performance figures are shown for the Z Acc share class, in sterling, inclusive of reinvested income, net of the Ongoing Charge and net of portfolio transaction costs. Sector average performance is calculated on an equivalent basis. This is a Comparator Benchmark. Given its asset allocation the Funds performance can be compared against the Benchmark. However the Fund is actively managed and is not constrained by any benchmark.

Investment risk

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 funds invest 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 funds have 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 funds may be exposed to counterparty risk should an entity with which the fund does business become insolvent resulting in financial loss.

The funds may invest in contingent convertible bonds which may result in significant risk of capital loss based on certain trigger events.

The funds’ performance may be adversely affected by variations in interest rates.

As one of the key objectives of the Invesco Distribution Fund (UK), the Invesco Monthly Income Plus Fund (UK) and Invesco High Yield Fund (UK) 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.

As the Invesco Tactical Bond Fund (UK) can rapidly change its holdings across the fixed income and debt spectrum and cash, this can increase its risk profile.

The Invesco Tactical Bond Fund (UK) has the ability to invest more than 35% of its value in securities issued by a single government or public international body.

Invesco Sterling Bond Fund
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.
