Managed by

Paul Causer

Paul Causer has clocked up more than 20 years' fund management experience. He started out as a research and credit analyst with Japanese bank Asahi Bank and moved on to the group's treasury department before he was given responsibility for the bank's multi-currency investment portfolio. Along with his co-manager Paul Read, Causer signed a new contract with Invesco Perpetual in 2002 after turning down an approach from New Star. The 'two Ps' also co-manage the Invesco Global Bond fund, and the Invesco Leveraged High Yield investment trust. In January 2004 they began co-managing the newly launched Invesco Perpetual Distribution fund alongside colleague Neil Woodford.

Julien Eberhardt

Paul Read

Although Paul Read cites Neil Woodford as the investor he admires most, he has tremendous respect for Paul Causer, the man with whom he has established a highly successful partnership during the past seven years at Invesco Perpetual. The pair head fixed interest retail investment at the group and jointly oversee about £1 billion in a diverse range of unit trusts, pension funds, offshore funds and investment trusts. Within this range is their key portfolio, the Invesco Perpetual Corporate Bond fund, which they have managed since July 1995. Born in November 1961, Read graduated in Economics and History from the University of Toronto.

Capital instruments include debt securities (including sub-investment grade and unrated bonds), equity and equity related securities. The Fund may also invest in cash, cash equivalents, money market instruments, collective investment schemes, government debt securities and other transferable securities.
