Fund Description

Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in municipal securities at the time of investment. The policy stated in the foregoing sentence is a fundamental policy of the Fund and may not be changed without shareholder approval of a majority of the Fund’s outstanding voting securities, as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (1940 Act). In complying with this 80% investment requirement, the Fund may invest in derivatives and other instruments that have economic characteristics similar to the Fund’s direct investments that are counted toward the 80% investment requirement.
Municipal securities include debt obligations of states, territories or possessions of the United States and the District of Columbia and their political subdivisions, agencies and instrumentalities, the interest on which is exempt from federal income tax, at the time of issuance, in the opinion of bond counsel or other counsel to the issuers of such securities.
The principal types of municipal debt securities purchased by the Fund are revenue obligations and general obligations. To meet its investment objective, the Fund invests in different types of general obligation and revenue obligation securities, including fixed and variable rate securities, municipal notes, variable rate demand notes, municipal leases, custodial receipts, and participation certificates. The Fund may invest in these and other types of municipal securities. Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests primarily in municipal securities classified as revenue bonds.
Invesco Advisers, Inc. (Invesco or the Adviser) generally seeks to achieve the Fund’s investment objective by investing at least 75% of its net assets in higher yielding municipal securities, specifically medium- and lower-grade municipal securities. Investment grade securities are: (i) securities rated BBB- or higher by S&P Global Ratings (S&P) or Baa3 or higher by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (Moody’s) or an equivalent rating by another nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO), (ii) securities with comparable short-term NRSRO ratings, or (iii) unrated securities determined by the Adviser to be of comparable quality, each at the time of purchase. Medium- and lower-grade municipal securities are securities rated by S&P or Fitch, Inc. (Fitch) as BBB+ through D (inclusive) for bonds or SP-2 or lower for notes; by Moody’s as Baa1 through D (inclusive) for bonds or MIG3 or VMIG3 or lower for notes; or unrated municipal securities determined by the Adviser to be of comparable quality, each at the time of purchase. If two or more NRSROs have assigned different ratings to a security, the Adviser uses the lowest rating assigned. Medium- and lower-grade securities are, therefore, inclusive of some securities rated investment grade. Most of the municipal securities in which the Fund currently invests are rated “below investment-grade” at the time of purchase. “Below investment-grade” securities are those rated below the four highest rating categories of S&P, Moody's, Fitch or another NRSRO (or, in the case of unrated securities,
determined by the Adviser to be comparable to securities rated below investment-grade). Securities rated below investment grade are commonly referred to as junk bonds.
At times, the market conditions in the municipal securities markets may be such that the Adviser may invest in higher-grade issues, particularly when the difference in returns between quality classifications is very narrow or when the Adviser expects interest rates to increase. Higher-grade securities are securities that are rated higher than medium- or lower-grade securities by Moody’s, S&P, or Fitch, or considered by the Adviser to be of comparable quality, including municipal securities rated A-, SP-1 or higher by S&P or rated A3, MIG2, VMIG2 or higher by Moody’s and tax-exempt commercial paper rated A-3 or higher by S&P or rated P-3 or higher by Moody’s or unrated securities determined by the Adviser to be of comparable quality.
The Fund may invest more than 25% of its net assets in a segment of the municipal securities market with similar characteristics if the Adviser determines that the yields available from obligations in a particular segment justify the additional risks of a larger investment in such segment. The Fund may not, however, invest more than 25% of its net assets in industrial development revenue bonds issued for companies in the same industry.
The Fund has no policy limiting its investments in municipal securities whose issuers are located in the same state. However, it is not the present intention of the Fund to invest more than 25% of the value of its net assets in issuers located in the same state.
The Fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in investments that generate income subject to income taxes. Taxable investments includemany of the types of securities the Fund would buy for temporary defensive purposes. The Fund does not anticipate investing substantial amounts of its assets in taxable investments under normal market conditions or as part of its normal trading strategies and policies.
Under normal market conditions, the Fund may invest all or a substantial portion of its assets in municipal securities that are subject to the federal alternative minimum tax (AMT). From time to time, the Fund temporarily may invest up to 10% of its net assets in tax exempt money market funds and such instruments will be treated as investments in municipal securities.
The Fund may invest in illiquid or thinly traded investments. The Fund may also invest in securities that are subject to resale restrictions such as those contained in Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Fund’s investments may include securities that do not produce immediate cash income, such as zero coupon securities and payment-in-kind securities.
The Fund may purchase and sell securities on a when-issued and delayed delivery basis, which means that the Fund may buy or sell a security with payment and delivery taking place in the future.
The Fund can invest in inverse floating rate municipal obligations issued in connection with tender option bond programs to generate leverage. The Fund’s investments in inverse floating rate municipal obligations are included for purposes of the 80% policy described above.
The Fund may invest in distressed debt securities and defaulted securities.
The Fund can invest in derivative instruments, including futures contracts and swap contracts.
The Fund can use futures contracts, including interest rate futures, to reduce exposure to interest rate changes and to manage duration.
The Fund can use swap contracts, including interest rate swaps, to hedge its exposure to interest rates.
The Fund can borrow money to purchase additional securities, another form of leverage. Although the amount of borrowing will vary from time to time, the amount of leveraging from borrowings will not exceed one-third of the Fund’s total assets.
The Fund can invest up to 25% of its total assets in tobacco settlement revenue bonds and up to 25% of its total assets in tobacco-related bonds
without an appropriation pledge that make payments only from a state's interest in the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA)
The Adviser buys and sells securities for the Fund’s portfolio with a view towards seeking a high level of interest income exempt from federal income tax and selects securities that the Adviser believes entail reasonable credit risk considered in relation to the investment policies of the Fund. As a result, the Fund will not necessarily invest in the highest yielding municipal securities permitted by its investment policies if the Adviser determines that market risks or credit risks associated with such investments would subject the Fund’s portfolio to undue risk.
Decisions to purchase or sell securities are determined by the relative value considerations of the portfolio managers that factor in economic and credit-related fundamentals, market supply and demand, market dislocations and situation-specific opportunities. The purchase or sale of securities may be related to a decision to alter the Fund’s macro risk exposure (such as duration, yield curve positioning and sector exposure), a need to limit or reduce the Fund’s exposure to a particular security or issuer, degradation of an issuer’s credit quality, or general liquidity needs of the Fund. The potential for realization of capital gains or losses resulting from possible changes in interest rates will not be a major consideration and frequency of portfolio turnover generally will not be a limiting factor if the Adviser considers it advantageous to purchase or sell securities.
