From Financial Times

John Schroer, head of research at the firm is quoted as saying that: "Historically, we go direct. That's on the surface. Our objective is that clients don't have all the same needs, and we're trying to serve all of our clients." Interestingly, the article fails to cover the possible conflict that Invesco has with sister-company AIM. That firm, of course, specializes in broker-sold funds.
