Invesco Perpetual wins the Overall Fund Group, plus two individual fund awards, at the 2015 Lipper Fund Awards. The Lipper Fund Awards honour funds and fund management firms that have excelled in consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers.
“As advocates of active fund management, we’re delighted to have won Lipper’s Overall Fund Group Award in 2015 which recognises the strength and depth of our product offering”, said the firm in a press release.
“At Invesco Perpetual, we’ve built a renowned investment culture in Henley-on-Thames which supports our talented and experienced fund managers. Alongside our long-established equity and fixed interest capabilities, we’ve expanded our product range to include a multi-asset offering, which further supports our focus on long-term solutions for clients”, said.
In addition to the Overall Fund Group Award, the Invesco Perpetual High Yield and Global Equity Income Funds were also award winners.
Lewis Aubrey-Johnson, Head of Fixed Income Products commented: “We’re delighted to have received this award from Lipper in recognition of the fund’s risk-adjusted performance. This is the third award for the Invesco Perpetual High Yield Fund in the last 12 months, and with the addition of Asad Bhatti as Deputy Fund Manager, we aim to maintain our strong investment track record in future years.”
On the award for the Invesco Perpetual Global Equity Income Fund, Chief Investment Officer Nick Mustoe said: “Where some equity income funds look to maximise income in the short term by focusing on the highest yielding parts of the market, this fund focuses on sustainable income. We refer to this approach as ‘quality income’ and as such, are pleased to learn that Invesco Perpetual Global Equity Income Fund is a top performer in the IMA Global Equity Income sector over five years in the UK. Over the long term, we employ a ‘quality income’ approach that seeks to deliver a diversified portfolio of stocks that provide an attractive mix of income, dividend growth and capital appreciation.”
