Invesco PowerShares Launches New Global Share Buyback ETF

December 22, 2014


Invesco PowerShares: Leading the Intelligent ETF Revolution
Invesco is a leading independent global investment management firm, dedicated to helping people worldwide build their financial security. By delivering the combined power of our distinctive worldwide investment management capabilities, Invesco provides a comprehensive array of enduring investment solutions for retail, institutional and high net worth clients around the world. Operating in 20 countries, the firm is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. PowerShares was founded in the US in 2003 on a vision of delivering investment performance through the benefit-rich Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) structure. In January 2006, PowerShares expanded its vision by becoming part of Invesco Ltd, whose global presence took the Invesco PowerShares story beyond the US. When the first ever ETF was launched in 1993, its purpose was simple—to track the S&P 500 Index while trading on a major exchange. Since then, many traditional ETFs have been designed to mirror a number of different benchmark indices. Not all ETFs, however, seek to simply track a measure of a market. Invesco PowerShares offers a selection of ETFs that track “next generation” indices: indices that go beyond merely tracking a particular market. These indices attempt to outperform the performance of a particular market through intelligent security selection and weighting.

Risk warnings
The price of ETFs 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. The risks described herein are the fund specific material risks. ETFs’ share prices are subject to a bid / offer spread, subject to management fees, and whilst they seek to track an index, there is no guarantee that this will be achieved. Accordingly, ETF investment returns will be different to those of the index. Investors cannot buy an index directly. When making an investment in an ETF you are buying shares in a company that is listed on a stock exchange. It is expected that shares in the ETFs will trade closely to their NAV, and because of the exchange-traded fund structure, it is expected that a significant discount or premium of price to asset value will not be sustainable over the long term. However, supply and demand in the shares on the relevant exchange together with any disruptions to creations and redemptions of units in the underlying fund may result in share prices that differ significantly from the NAVs and there can be no certainty that there will be liquidity in the shares on any exchange. Only Authorised Participants, as defined in the Prospectus of the ETF, can request the Manager to create and redeem units in the underlying fund. For more information please consult the current fund specific Key Investor Information Document (KIID) and for a complete set of risks the current prospectus.
