Invesco PMS

PMS Rating

IME PMS Rating

AMC does not meet our selection criteria at this time

Not a recommended AMC: While Invesco AMC does benefit from a strong research process and differentiated portfolios, the core investment team has only been together for a few years. It also suffers from common ailments of large AMC-driven PMS houses (PMS as an add-on instead of a clearly segregated business unit, churn in the investment team and a lack of skin in the game for the CIO). While it has the potential to become a strong AMC PMS player, it is still too early in terms of leadership change to recommend large investments in Invesco strategies.

The PMS/AIF AMC Rating is derived on the basis of our analysis on 5 key qualitative parameters that we use to analyse the quality of a PMS/AIF Provider. These include an assessment of the size of the AMC, the pedigree of the AMC, the pedigree of the team, the value of the investment philosophy & the level of differentiation. These insights of our central research team are documented in the IME RMS, and can be accessed during a consultation call with an IME PMS specialist.

PMS Background

Discretionary AUM (675cr) | Promoter Category ()

PMS Background

Invesco PMS is part of Invesco AMC (a relatively small Indian MF, but part of one of the largest global investment groups). The AMC prides itself on its investment processes (driven by a strong in-house stock categorisation mechanism) and on staying true-to-mandate.

PMS Investment Philosophy

Invesco PMS does not have a clearly defined investment philosophy at the PMS level, with investment philosophies being driven more at a strategy level (at which level the philosophies are quite tightly defined). However, they do have a strongly defined investment process (driven by their in-house categorisation of all companies in their universe as a star, leader, warrior, diamond, frog prince, shotgun and commodities).

Note: PMS AMC & Scheme Reviews and Ratings are based on IME Capital’s Proprietary Review and Rating Methodology (read more here: AMC Rating & Scheme Ratings). These reflect the unbiased views of our central research team, based on our assessment of the investment value of these PMS/AIF strategies for our investors. We follow a highly stringent rating-criteria, where approximately 50% of PMS AMC’s & strategies would be rated 2-star or below (this is not meant to indicate that these funds are not investment-worthy, but that they do not currently fulfill the requirements we focus on for recommending funds to our investors — based on our internal views on the merit of the AMC/strategy relative to peers). Reviews & Ratings are primarily based on research of publicly available information (SEBI disclosures, PMS websites, PMS-aggregation platforms, webinar recording, media interviews etc.) and no explicit consent is required from AMCs for the same. While we endeavour to do further due-diligence via direct interactions with the investment teams of AMCs, this is typically restricted to AMC’s that meet our foundational fund selection criteria (reviews on lower-rated AMCs are often based solely on publicly available information). The views reflected in our Reviews & Ratings, are our independent views and may not be shared by the AMC’s and the investment teams. Please read detailed disclaimer for more.
