Invesco launches two new Eurozone equity funds
British asset manager Invesco has announced the launch of two new Eurozone equity funds, the Invesco Pan European Structured Equity Fund and the Invesco Pan European Equity Fund.
The Invesco Euro Structured Equity Fund is managed by Alexander Uhlmann and Thorsten Paarmann, drawing on the support of the Invesco Quantitative Strategies Team in Frankfurt. The fund aims to offer investors the full long-term performance potential of Euro equities while aiming to control the volatility normally associated with equities.
Thorsten Paarmann commented: “In the current market environment, we believe that the case for low-volatility investing remains strong. The fund’s defensive approach to the market and intended low correlation with the benchmark and its competitors aims to offer an efficient risk/return profile and to help preserve wealth particularly during periods of economic stress.”
The Invesco Euro Equity Fund is managed by Jeff Taylor and the Invesco European Equities team in Henley-on-Thames. The team’s long-term investment approach seeks to capitalise on valuation anomalies in the market, with the benchmark considered to be more of a point of reference as opposed to a determinant of investment decisions.
Jeff Taylor commented: “While the fund can potentially offer attractive alpha in strong equity markets, its flexible approach and valuation focus aim to deliver attractive performance under most market conditions.”
The two funds are registered in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Luxembourg and in Italy, in the latter, the funds are registered for professional investors only and not available for public distribution.
