INVESCO Ups Exposure to International Equities

August 7, 2007 ( - INVESCO has launched a new institutional portable alpha strategy that combines traditional international equity index exposure with the firm's Global Tactical Asset Allocation (GTAA) capability.

According to a press release, the INVESCO GTAA Alpha Overlay – International Equity strategy was developed to outperform the MSCI EAFE Index with a low correlation to traditional markets.

“This new strategy was created in response to client interest in increasing their exposure to international equities while seeking non-traditional sources of alpha such as GTAA,” said Kirk Holland, Managing Director of INVESCO’s Atlanta Investment Group.

The company’s GTAA strategy was launched in 2001 and is managed by the firm’s Atlanta- based Multiple Asset Strategies investment team.
