The Invesco Funds Group of Denver is asking shareholders to approve plans to liquidate two international funds because of the funds' poor growth prospects, lack of assets and inconsistencies with Invesco's investment style, according to a proxy statement the firm filed with the SEC last week. Shareholders will vote at a meeting Nov. 27 to liquidate the Invesco Latin American Growth Fund and the Invesco Pacific Basin Fund.

The regions in which both funds invest have been weak and volatile for an extended period and there are limited investment opportunities, according to the proxy. Also, the funds are inconsistent with Invesco's growth-oriented, stock specific style, according to the proxy.
