Invesco US High Yield Fallen Angels UCITS ETF GBP Hdg Acc

Product description

The Invesco US High Yield Fallen Angels UCITS ETF GBP Hdg Acc aims to provide investors with investment results which, before expenses, correspond to the price and yield performance of the FTSE Time-Weighted US Fallen Angel Bond Select Index (“the Index”) in US dollar terms by holding, as far as possible and practicable, a sample of the Index’s constituents. The portfolio follows the Index's monthly rebalancing.

To minimise exposure to fluctuations in the exchange rate between USD and GBP, the GBP Hedged share class enters into foreign exchange transactions (typically short dated currency forwards, with the hedge reset daily to 100% of NAV).

The Index is designed to measure the performance of “fallen angels” – bonds which were previously rated investment-grade, but were subsequently downgraded to high-yield. The Index is based on the FTSE Time-Weighted US Fallen Angel Bond Index which includes USD-denominated bonds issued by corporations domiciled in the US or Canada. Any such bonds with a rating changed from investment-grade to high-yield in the previous month are eligible for inclusion and will be held for a period of 60 months, provided they continue to meet the inclusion criteria. If a bond exits and then re-enters the Benchmark, the inclusion period is reset. Unlike indices where constituent weights are based on market value, the Index’s weights are determined based on the time from inclusion, with higher weights assigned to bonds that have more recently become “fallen angels” (aiming to capture the potential price rebound effect that fallen angels may experience soon after their initial downgrade to high-yield). An issuer cap of 5% is applied. For liquidity, each issue is also capped at 5x its original market value weight.

Key fund risks

Although the Investment Manager will continually monitor the return of the Fund in comparison to the performance of the relevant Index, there can be no guarantee that the Fund will match the performance of the Index.

The Fund’s use of a sampling approach may result in it holding a smaller number of securities than are in the Index. This may affect its ability to track the Index and may result in larger fluctuations in its value than if it held all of the securities in the Index.

In tracking the Index, the Fund will be concentrated in a single country or a small number of countries. Investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for a fund that is geographically diversified.

Changes in interest rates will result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund.

Debt securities are exposed to credit risk which is the ability of the borrower to repay the interest and capital on the redemption date.

The Fund will hold a large amount of debt securities which are of lower credit quality and may result in large fluctuations in the value of the Fund.

The Fund will hold a large amount of lower quality debt securities which may impact the liquidity of the Fund under certain circumstances.

As the shares of the Fund are listed on one or more stock exchange(s) there may be insufficient demand to buy or sell the shares which may cause the price to be different than the actual value of the net asset value of the Fund.

Return on your investment may be adversely affected by variations in exchange rates.
