Strategy And Objective
The Fund s investment objective is to seek total return. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in high-yield, below-investment grade, fixed-income securities (also referred to as junk bonds), and in derivatives and other instruments that have economic characteristics similar to such securities. The Fund s fixed income investments may include certain restricted securities, including securities that are only eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Below-investment grade securities are securities rated below BBB- or below Baa3 by at least one of S&P Global Ratings (S&P) or Moody s Investors Service (Moody s), respectively, or that have comparable ratings from other nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (NRSROs). If two or more NRSROs have assigned different ratings to a security, the Adviser uses the lowest rating assigned. The Fund may also invest in unrated securities, in which case Invesco Advisers, Inc. (Invesco or the Adviser) may internally assign ratings to certain of those securities, after assessing their credit quality, in categories similar to those of NRSROs. In such instances, the unrated securities would then be counted toward the 80% investment strategy if determined to be below-investment grade by the Adviser. There can be no assurance, nor is it intended, that the Adviser s credit analysis is consistent or comparable with the credit analysis process used by an NRSRO. In investing in below-investment grade securities, the Fund may invest in distressed securities and securities that are in default. The Fund may purchase securities of any maturity and of issuers of any market capitalization. The Fund is managed by Invesco s Fixed Income Factor Team (FIF). In selecting securities for the portfolio, the Fund s portfolio managers and FIF analysts utilize a factor-based strategy that involves systematically targeting securities exhibiting quantifiable issuer characteristics (or factors ) that FIF believes will have higher returns than other fixed income securities with comparable characteristics over market cycles. Securities no longer exhibiting these factors will typically be sold. In practice, this means the Fund may have higher allocations to: value bonds (bonds that have high spreads relative to other securities of similar credit quality and/or sector); low volatility bonds (bonds that have lower levels of price volatility); and high carry bonds (bonds with higher absolute yield or spread). The portfolio managers expect to include additional factors or modify the factors used to build the Fund s portfolio as they deem appropriate. The portfolio managers will also seek to minimize some of the residual risks associated with the higher allocations to the types of bonds mentioned above (such as duration and sector concentration), including through the use of derivatives, as described below. Additionally, the Fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in U.S. Treasury and agency securities. The Fund may also invest up to 10% of its net assets in certain collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), including collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) and collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), of any rating, and loan obligations, including bank loans. The Fund may also, subject to the requirements regarding below-investment grade allocations described above, invest in foreign debt securities, including securities issued by foreign governments or companies in developing and emerging markets, i.e., those that are generally in the early stages of their industrial cycles, but may only invest up to 10% of its net assets in securities denominated in non-U.S. dollar currencies. The portfolio managers may use derivatives to seek to hedge any foreign currency exposure. For purposes of the percent allocations described above, the Adviser applies such rules to the Fund s portfolio at the time of purchasing a security. Accordingly, the Fund s portfolio may deviate from such limits due to market movement. The Fund may also use certain types of derivative investments for investment purposes or for hedging, including: options, futures, forward contracts, swaps, certain mortgage-related securities or asset-backed securities, which may include privately issued and U.S. agency securities and securities of any credit rating, structured notes and other types of derivatives. The Fund can use swap contracts, including interest rate swaps, to hedge or adjust its exposure to interest rates. The Fund can also use swap contracts, including credit default swaps, to create long or short exposure to corporate or sovereign debt securities. The Fund can further use swap contracts, including credit default index swaps, to hedge credit risk or take a position on a basket of credit entities; total return swaps, to gain exposure to a reference asset; and volatility swaps to adjust the volatility profile of the Fund. The Fund can use options, including currency options, to seek alpha (return on investments in excess of the benchmark index) or to mitigate risk and to hedge against adverse movements in the foreign currencies in which portfolio securities are denominated. The Fund can also use credit default swap options to gain the right to enter into a credit default swap at a specified future date. The Fund can further use swaptions (options on swaps) to manage interest rate risk and options on bond or rate futures to manage interest rate exposure. The Fund can use futures contracts, including interest rate futures and Treasury futures, to increase or reduce its exposure to interest rate changes. The Fund can also use currency futures to increase or decrease its exposure to foreign currencies. The Fund can engage in foreign currency transactions either on a spot basis (i.e., for prompt delivery and settlement at the rate prevailing in the currency exchange market at the time) or through forward foreign currency contracts to gain or mitigate the risk of foreign currency exposure. The Fund may purchase and sell securities on a when-issued and delayed delivery basis, which means that the Fund buys or sells a security with payment and delivery taking place in the future. The payment obligation and the interest rate are fixed at the time the Fund enters into the commitment. No income accrues on such securities until the date the Fund actually takes delivery of the securities. In attempting to meet its investment objective or to manage subscription and redemption requests, the Fund may engage in active and frequent trading of portfolio securities.
