The digital revolution which we live in today has inspired a new age of convenience.

Speaking at the launch, Mr. Saurabh Nanavati, Chief Executive Officer, Invesco Mutual Fund said, “While we consume services from many of these companies* like Amazon, Netflix, Uber, Sony, Nintendo in India, we are unable to invest and benefit as these companies/businesses are not listed on the stock exchanges in India. More importantly, investors should consider geographical diversification, which often gets less spotlight than perhaps it should as different markets perform differently. Not only geographic diversification reduces portfolio risk, it also presents some unique investment opportunities and has the potential to enhance portfolio returns.”
“As a firm, we are committed to bring differentiated investment strategies into India for our Indian Investors by leveraging into our parent’s global investment capabilities. The current offering is our one such effort to offer Indian investors a fund, which is unique in the marketplace from an investment strategy perspective as it captures changes in consumer habits with the emergence of digital lifestyles and is not focused on a single country; thereby offering a portfolio having a low degree of overlap and low correlation with available funds. An allocation to the fund could help investors to overall reduce portfolio risk.”
