Invesco Japanese Equity Core: Qual Rating Issued

Invesco Japanese Equity Core has strong long-term prospects but high expenses detract

We have published a new Morningstar Qualitative Rating and Research Report for Invesco Japanese Equity Core.

"Japanese equities have been a tough sell over the last few years and the near-term picture seems grim given domestic pressures; weak consumer demand, excess capacity and deflation fears, not to mention the feeble demand felt by its export-oriented companies. Still, Paul Chesson has steered this fund commendably since it launched in 2001. He’s worked at Invesco Perpetual for most of his career and specialised in Japanese equities from the outset when he joined in 1993. Chesson works closely with Tony Roberts, who is the only other Japanese equity manager at the firm. Roberts has 14 years experience and was hired in 2000 from Clerical Medical where he was a Japanese equity analyst and fund manager."
