UK-based investment firm Invesco Perpetual has rolled out a new global emerging market bond fund aimed at investors looking for income and capital growth over the medium to long term.

The new vehicle, dubbed the Invesco Perpetual Global Emerging Markets Bond fund, will incorporate an unconstrained, active investment management similar to other funds in the bond range.

The fund will be co-managed by Stuart Edwards and Asad Bhatti. It will charge between 0.65% and 0.95% depending upon the share class, with a minimum investment of £500.

Invesco Perpetual co-head of fixed interest Paul Causer said: “We believe emerging market bonds are going to become an increasingly important and prominent asset class.

“Conversations with clients already suggest that there is greater appetite for these sorts of products and we have talented managers in Stuart and Asad who have a wealth of expertise and knowledge to bring to this new fund.”
