Invesco and Perpetual to rebrand

Invesco and Perpetual are to rebrand next spring following last month&#39s £1bn takeover.

The core range of UK onshore funds will be rebr anded Invesco Perpetual, alth ough this will not mean a merging of investment styles.

It has not yet been decided how the offshore range is to be branded.

The two brands are to remain separate for the forthcoming Isa season, with all funds remaining intact. An announcement on fund mergers and closures will be made by January.

Invesco UK chief executive Hugh Ward says: “The conclusions of the brand review process will define longer-term branding, naming and creative strategy for the combined group and we will announce this in Q4 2001.

“It is important at this stage that we continue to run with both brands.”
