Research house Morningstar has retained its two-star rating on the combined Invesco/County Investment Management group despite noting that the management process had recently been strengthened.
A two-star overall rating, based on both quantitative and qualitative assessments, indicates a "relatively poor quality" funds manager in Morningstar's opinion.
Invesco has a low profile in New Zealand, however it does offer a number of funds including a global share trust invested along thematic lines.
