Sustainable Summary

Invesco Global Real Estate Fd has a number of attributes that may meet the expectations of sustainability-focused investors, despite some issues worthy of attention.

Invesco Global Real Estate Fd's holdings are exposed to average levels of ESG risk relative to those of its peers in the Real Estate Sector Equity category, thus earning it an average Morningstar Sustainability Rating of 3 globes. Competing funds in the category with ratings of 4 or 5 globes have less ESG risk in their holdings. ESG risk provides investors with a signal that reflects to what degree their investments are exposed to risks related to material ESG issues, such as climate change and inequalities, that are not sufficiently managed. ESG risk differs from impact, which is about seeking positive environmental and social outcomes.

Currently, the fund's involvement in fossil fuels is negligible, and compares favorably with 0.08% for its average peer. No companies held by Invesco Global Real Estate Fd are recognized as being involved in controversies at a high or severe level. From bribery and corruption to workplace discrimination and environmental incidents, controversies can have significant financial repercussions, ranging from legal penalties to consumer boycotts. In addition, controversies can damage the reputation of both companies themselves and their shareholders.

One potential issue for a sustainability-focused investor is that Invesco Global Real Estate Fd doesn’t have an ESG-focused mandate. Funds with an ESG-focused mandate would have a higher probability to drive positive ESG outcomes.

Invesco Global Real Estate Fd's asset-weighted Carbon Risk Score of 10.23 is at the lower end of the medium carbon risk band. This suggests the fund’s investee companies are adequately positioned to transition to a low-carbon economy. Investors concerned about the transition risks may prefer to consider funds with negligible or low carbon risk. Funds with a lower carbon risk classification may be more favored by investors concerned about transition risks, as such funds often tilt toward companies that operate in sectors less exposed to the transition (for example, healthcare and IT) or companies in more carbon-intensive sectors (for example, materials and utilities) that consider climate change in their business strategy, and therefore are positively aligned with the transition.
