Fund Description

The Invesco DB G10 Currency Harvest Fund (Fund) seeks to track changes, positive or negative, in the level of the Deutsche Bank G10 Currency Future Harvest Index ® - Excess Return (DB G10 Currency Future Harvest Index ER or Index) over time, plus income from the Fund’s holdings of US Treasury securities, money market funds and T-Bill ETFs, less Fund’s expenses. The Fund is designed for investors who want a cost effective and convenient way to invest in currency futures. The Index is composed of currency futures contracts on certain G10 currencies and is designed to exploit the trend that currencies associated with relatively high interest rates, on average, tend to rise in value relative to currencies associated with relatively low interest rates. The Index’s G10 currency universe includes U.S. dollars, euros, Japanese yen, Canadian dollars, Swiss francs, British pounds, Australian dollars, New Zealand dollars, Norwegian krone and Swedish krona. Not all currencies will be included in the index. The Fund seeks to track the Index, which is designed to reflect the return from investing up to a 2:1 leveraged basis (immediately upon rebalancing, which may then increase or decrease) in long currency futures positions for certain currencies associated with relatively high yielding interest rates and in short currency futures positions for certain currencies associated with relatively low yielding interest rates. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly.

This Fund is not suitable for all investors due to the speculative nature of an investment based upon the Fund’s trading which takes place in very volatile markets. Because an investment in the Fund is leveraged, even a small movement in the market price of the underlying futures contracts could cause large losses.

How the Fund Invests and Potential Advantages The Fund invests in liquid futures contracts trading on regulated exchanges and has the following potential advantages:

Enhanced currency index: The Index is designed to exploit the tendency for currencies associated with higher interest rates to yield greater returns than currencies associated with lower interest rates.

Diversification: Currencies may help to diversify a portfolio because currency returns have tended to exhibit low correlation to stock and bond returns. Of course, diversification does not guarantee a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.

Ease of investment: The Fund provides convenient access to the returns of the international currency markets by following a highly-developed index previously available only to very sophisticated investors.

Interest earned: The Fund collateralizes its futures contracts primarily with US Treasury securities, money market funds and T-Bill ETFs and earns interest on these securities. Interest income can enhance returns.
