Invesco targets HY and mixed assets with double launch

Invesco targets HY and mixed assets with double launch

Invesco Asset Management has bolstered its fund range with a pair of new launches that target short-term high yield debt and sustainable multi-asset investing, Citywire Selector can reveal.

Both of the new funds are Luxembourg-domiciled and further expand the asset manager’s expertise in both fixed income and diversified funds.

The first of the two funds is the Invesco Global High Yield Short Term Bond fund, which was launched on December 12 and is overseen by the firm’s Atlanta-based active multi-sector credit team.

The specific lead managers on the fund are named as Joseph Portera, who is head of multi-sector credit, and Jennifer Hartviksen, who is based in Canada and is a senior high yield bond manager.

In this new approach, Portera and Hartviksen will focus on long-term growth from short-term, non-investment grade debt. The fund’s technical indicator is the Citi WGBI 1-3 Year TR.

Meanwhile, the Invesco Sustainable Allocation fund, which is the second new launch, will be overseen by the company’s German subsidiary, with Citywire + rated Manuela von Ditfurth and co-manager Martin Kolrep overseeing the fund.

It is understood this fund will follow similar remits to the multi-asset approaches currently overseen by the Frankfurt-based unit, albeit with a greater emphasis on longer-term sustainability.
