Invesco Perpetual Distribution Fund
August 2014 (Content as at 31 July 2014)
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. Past performance is not a guide to future returns.
The securities that the fund invests in may not always make interest and other payments nor is the solvency of the issuers guaranteed. Market conditions, such as a decrease in market liquidity, may mean that it is not easy to buy or sell securities. These risks increase where the fund invests in high yield bonds and where we use derivatives.
The fund has the ability to make use of financial derivatives (complex instruments) which may result in the fund being leveraged and can result in large fluctuations in the value of the fund. Leverage on certain types of transactions including derivatives may impair the fund’s liquidity, cause it to liquidate positions at unfavourable times or otherwise cause the fund not to achieve its intended objective. Leverage occurs when the economic exposure created by the use of derivatives is greater than the amount invested resulting in the fund being exposed to a greater loss than the initial investment.The fund may be exposed to counterparty risk should an entity with which the fund does business become insolvent resulting in financial loss.
Yield and performance figures are based on the accumulation share class.
All fund portfolio figures are as at date shown (source: Invesco Perpetual).
Performance figures are shown in sterling on a mid-to-mid basis, inclusive of net reinvested income and net of the ongoing charge and portfolio transaction costs to date shown. The figures do not reflect the entry charge paid by individual investors (source: Lipper).
The yields shown are expressed as % per annum of current NAV of the fund. They are estimates for the next 12 months, assuming that the fund’s portfolio remains unchanged and there are no defaults or deferrals of coupon payments or capital repayments. They are not guaranteed. They do not reflect the entry charge of the fund. Investors may be subject to tax on distributions. Cash income is estimated coupons from bonds and, where applicable, estimated dividends from equities. The running yield estimates expected cash income into the fund from coupons of current bond holdings and, where applicable, dividends from current equity holdings. The running yield for this fund is gross of the ongoing charge, which is charged to capital. The redemption yield estimates the annualised total return: in addition to expected cash income, it includes the amortised annual value of unrealised capital gains/losses of current bond holdings, calculated with reference to their current market price and expected redemption value. The redemption yield is net of the ongoing charge. The distribution yield estimates the cash distribution to the shareholders: in addition to expected cash income, it includes the amortised annual value of unrealised capital gains/losses of current bond holdings, calculated with reference to their historic purchase price and expected redemption value (known as ‘effective yield from purchase price’ method). The distribution yield for this fund is gross of the ongoing charge, which is charged to capital. The underlying yield is calculated in the same way as the distribution yield, but is always net of the ongoing charge. The underlying yield for this fund is, therefore, lower than the distribution yield by the amount of the ongoing charge. Where, in the Manager’s judgement, there is significant uncertainty that a bond holding will be redeemed at par, the amortised capital component for that holding is retained in the fund’s capital and not distributed. This has the effect of reducing the estimated redemption, distribution and underlying yields and the actual distribution rate.
