“Our US-focused flagship fund, the PowerShares BuyBack Achievers Portfolio (PKW), has achieved a competitive long-term track record demonstrating the investment merit of the BuyBack Achievers methodology, and more broadly of smart beta,” says Lorraine Wang, Invesco PowerShares global head of ETF products and research. “The PowerShares International BuyBack Achievers Portfolio (IPKW) expands the range of tools investors can use to efficiently allocate the BuyBack Achievers strategy across the globe.”
 
The fund has an expense ratio of 0.55 per cent.
