Fund Objectives

Invesco Canadian Balanced Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital growth and current income by investing in a diversified portfolio of primarily Canadian securities. The Fund's targeted asset allocation is 60% equities and 40% fixed-income securities. The equity portfolio management team applies a long-term growth investment process that focuses on earnings, quality and valuation (EQV): identifying companies that have experienced, or exhibit the potential for accelerating or above-average earnings growth (E); analyzing the quality of the business and potential sustainability of earnings (Q); and looking for reasonable valuation (V). The fixed-income team applies a conservative fixed-income approach by only investing in investment-grade government and corporate bonds, with an emphasis on government bonds.
