What is Securities Lending?

Securities Lending is a well-established and tightly regulated practice involving the short-term transfer (loan) of securities. The objective is to enhance the ETF’s overall performance.

When a security is loaned, the borrower (who has been approved by Invesco and the Lending Agent) provides collateral and pays an agreed fee for the duration of the loan. Collateral is an asset that a lender accepts as security for a loan. If the borrower defaults on the loan payments, the lender can seize the collateral and resell it to recoup its losses.


How much revenue goes to the ETF?

The ETF will receive 90% of the revenue arising from securities lending, with the remaining 10% deducted by the Lending Agent, Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon), for its fees and to cover direct and indirect operational costs. Invesco will not receive any revenue from the programme.

Risks to consider
Securities lending involves certain risks that an investor should consider, including:

  • The risk of the borrower defaulting on its obligation to return the securities at the end of the loan period, and
  • The risk of the ETF being unable to sell the collateral provided to it if the borrower defaults.

To mitigate these risks, the ETF benefits from a “borrower default indemnity” provided by the Lending Agent, BNY Mellon. The indemnity allows for full replacement of the securities loaned if the collateral does not cover the value of the securities in the event of a borrower default.

Key Risks

General Investment Risk: The value of investments, and income from them, can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested.

Concentration risk: The Fund might be concentrated in a specific region or sector or be exposed to a limited number of positions, which might result in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund than for a fund that is more diversified.

Credit risk: The creditworthiness of the debt the Fund is exposed to may weaken and result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund. There is no guarantee the issuers of debt will repay the interest and capital on the redemption date. The risk is higher when the Fund is exposed to high yield debt securities.

Currency hedging: Currency hedging between the base currency of the Fund and the currency of the share class may not completely eliminate the currency risk between those two currencies and may affect the performance of the share class.

Interest Rate Risk: Changes in interest rates will result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund.
