ATLANTA, Feb. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Invesco Ltd. (NYSE: IVZ), a leading global asset management firm, today announced the launch of the Invesco International Developed Dynamic Multifactor ETF (IMFL). The addition of IMFL broadens the firm's dynamic multifactor suite, which currently includes ETFs that access large-cap and small-cap US equities to include international equities. Invesco's dynamic multifactor ETFs adapt and evolve factor holdings as the market environment changes.
"Invesco has a strong track record of offering dynamic multi-factor ETFs that adapt and evolve factor holdings as the market environment changes," said Anna Paglia, Global Head of ETFs and Indexed Strategies at Invesco. "Clients will now have access to international equities across geographies through an easily accessible single suite of ETFs."
IMFL seeks to track the investment results of the FTSE Developed ex US Invesco Dynamic Multifactor Index1, a rules-based index that re-weights securities to align rewarded factors according to economic cycles and overall market conditions. Factor exposures are targeted according to the four stages of the business cycle; recovery, expansion, slowdown and contraction. IMFL's underlying index is powered by a proprietary methodology for identifying economic and market sentiment indicators, which leverages intellectual capital of Invesco Investment Solutions in partnership with Invesco's indexing business. IMFL and its index are reconstituted and rebalanced as frequently as monthly.
The FTSE Developed ex US Index, the parent index of the FTSE Developed ex US Invesco Dynamic Multifactor Index, is comprised of large-capitalization (85%) and mid-capitalization (15%) stocks of companies located in 24 developed market countries around the world, excluding the United States.
Other ETFs included in the dynamic multifactor suite are Invesco Russell 1000 Dynamic Multifactor ETF (OMFL) with a 5-star Morningstar Overall rating out of 1230 funds in the Large Blend Category and the Invesco Russell 2000 Dynamic Multifactor ETF (OMFS), with 5-star Morningstar Overall rating out of 630 funds in the Small Blend Category. Morningstar ratings are based on risk adjusted return as of Jan. 31, 20212. These funds also leverage the same intellectual capital of the Invesco Investment Solutions team.

The Fund's return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.
Investments focused in a particular industry or sector are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.
The risks of investing in securities of foreign issuers can include fluctuations in foreign currencies, political and economic instability, and foreign taxation issues.
The performance of an investment concentrated in issuers of a certain region or country, such as the Japan and the European Union, is expected to be closely tied to conditions within that region and to be more volatile than more geographically diversified investments.
Stocks of medium-sized companies tend to be more vulnerable to adverse developments, may be more volatile, and may be illiquid or restricted as to resale.
Momentum style of investing is subject to the risk that the securities may be more volatile than the market as a whole or returns on securities that have previously exhibited price momentum are less than returns on other styles of investing.

The Fund may engage in frequent trading of its portfolio securities in connection with the rebalancing or adjustment of the Underlying Index.
