Invesco, manager of the Aim and PowerShares families of mutual funds, has launched the Aim Balanced-Risk Allocation Fund, an international balanced fund. Via derivatives, it will invest 60% of its assets in fixed income, 20% in equities and 20% in commodities.

Unlike other balanced funds, Scott Wolle, head of the asset allocation group at Invesco, told Bloomberg, the fund will “allocate assets differently from a traditional balanced fund. It’s thinking about how to balance risk,” regardless of the state of the economy.
