PowerShares was founded in the US in 2003 on a vision of delivering investment performance through the benefit-rich Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) structure. In January 2006, PowerShares expanded its vision by becoming part of Invesco Ltd, whose global presence took the Invesco PowerShares story beyond the US.
When the first ever ETF was launched in 1993, its purpose was simple — to track the S&P 500 Index while trading on a major exchange. Since then, many traditional ETFs have been designed to mirror a number of different benchmark indices. Not all ETFs, however, seek to simply track a measure of a market.
Invesco PowerShares offers a selection of ETFs that track “next generation” indices: indices that go beyond merely tracking a particular market. These indices attempt to outperform the performance of a particular market through intelligent security selection and weighting.
Invesco PowerShares is part of Invesco Ltd., a leading independent global investment management company dedicated to helping people worldwide build their financial security.

The price of ETFs and any income will fluctuate, this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations, and investors may not get back the full amount invested.
Whilst an ETF will seek to track an Index, Invesco PowerShares does not guarantee that this will occur.

When making an investment in an ETF you are buying shares in a company that is listed on a stock exchange.
