HOUSTON, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Invesco Distributors, Inc. announced
today the launch of a comprehensive, "step-at-a-time" website financial
advisors can use to help clients better prepare and account for the growing
complexities of retirement planning. The redesigned site was developed to help
advisors take their clients through the planning stages by using an intuitive
timeline format with easy access to a variety of beneficial tools and related
information.

"This new website brings together a wealth of meaningful information that
really helps advisors work with clients to understand and literally see all
the factors involved with developing a sensible and effective retirement
plan," said Terry Kelly, director of Retirement Sales. "As surveys continue to
reveal the concern of both employees and employers about retirement readiness,
we believe our website now offers advisors and investors one of the most
timely, user-friendly resources for retirement planning in the industry."

Better understanding of the complexity and multiple steps involved in
retirement planning can create a more effective client-advisor relationship.
That's the premise of Invesco's website, which is designed to make the process
more manageable for investors by helping them:

  oIdentify the variables unique to their age group — starting in their 20s
    and lasting throughout their retirement.
  oTake an active, hands-on, intentional approach to retirement readiness.
  oWork closely with their financial advisors throughout the process.

Distinguishing features of the website, invesco.com/RetirementReady, include:

  oA step-by-step presentation of the strategies, factors, variables and
    decisions that affect retirement savings.
  oA Retirement Planning Timeline that enables investors to determine where
    they are in the process and access the resources and tools they need at
    their particular stage.
  oNumerous visuals to help investors more clearly understand the concepts
    presented.
  oTwenty-three calculators to help advisors and investors personalize the
    planning process.
  oA "next steps" call to action for each section that lists actionable items
    with links to resources and tools.

"This is an important addition to the tools we provide our advisors to support
their practice and another step in our commitment to deepen our partnership
with them," said Brian Lee, national sales director for the Independent
Advisor Division.
