K. Michael Hudnall has been charged with a task that will send him traveling to more than a dozen countries over the next year on what he calls a "fact-finding mission." But the way Hudnall describes his new position sounds more like detective work, and Hudnall says it could not be more exciting.

Invesco figures are not broken out separately.
