When you're looking for passive exposure to traditional market-cap weighted benchmarks, you're likely to favour products that deliver the performance as cost effectively as possible. 

Our "portfolio funds" are among the lowest cost available for exposure to key equity, fixed income and commodity benchmarks. The following chart shows our ongoing charges as well as the average cost paid by investors in competitor products.

It's not just about cost

We realise that a low headline fee only tells part of the story. Other factors to consider include the fund’s transaction costs, tax treatment and how effectively it deals with dividends.

Our ETFs are designed to provide efficient and consistent tracking of their reference indices, net of charges including transaction costs. When we create an ETF, we can replicate its index in a few different ways, and we will choose the most efficient method on a case-by-case basis.

Factors we consider include:

  • The number of constituents in the index
  • How often the index is rebalanced
  • How easy the securities can be bought and sold
  • Any tax implications of one method over another
  • How the ETF can account for dividends

For our ETFs that use swaps, we seek to reduce the counterparty risk by:

  • Using multiple counterparties to reduce the impact if one were to default
  • Holding a basket of securities rather than cash to use if a counterparty defaults 
  • Resetting the swaps to zero when certain conditions are met; this is often daily.


Example of our synthetic ETF v largest competing physical ETF, both tracking the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

Source: Invesco, Bloomberg as of 24 January 2020. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of the future returns. Comparison is of Invesco MSCI Emerging Markets UCTIS ETF, and iShares MSCI EM UCITS ETF USD Dist, the largest physically replicating competitor by total assets tracking the MSCI Emerging Net Total Return USD. This comparison is made for illustrative purposes only and is not intended to suggest that either replication method will outperform the other. Risks specific to the ETF can be found in the KIID on the website.


Other considerations

Our ETFs are available to trade both on-exchange and "over the counter" (OTC). In addition to being sufficiently liquid, our ETFs tend to trade on relatively tight and consistent bid-offer spreads. For very large trades, or if you’re looking to switch from another ETF, we can offer guidance on your trading options. Please contact us for further information.    

We are completely transparent in terms of performance, costs and risk. All holdings of our products are available daily on the website.

Investment risks

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.

ETFs focused on one country will have greater concentration risk than if more geographically diversified. Investors in emerging markets ETFs should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for an ETF investing in the securities in other more established economies of developed countries, as difficulties in dealing, settlement and custody could arise.

In order to reach their investment objectives, some of the products enter into swap agreements, which provide the performance of the Reference Index, and may imply a range of risks which could lead to an adjustment or even the early termination of the swap agreement.

The products will not replicate the performance of their Reference Indices perfectly; this is because the products will incur drags on performance such as expenses and transactions costs, which the Reference Indices are not subject to. If the product is unable to hold the securities in the exact proportion required, this will affect its ability to track the Reference Index.

Risks specific to each product can be found in the relevant KIID/KID.
