Invesco Funds Group is bulking up the unit that markets its no-load mutual funds through brokerages, registered investment advisers, and banks.

The move underscores the growth of "nontraditional direct" sales, including those made through flat-fee investment accounts. Nontraditional direct sales take place when no-load funds - which usually are sold without a middleman - are sold through financial advisers.
