Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Custody Agreement
On October 1, 2019, Invesco DB Multi-Sector Commodity Trust (the “Trust”), on behalf of Invesco DB Energy Fund, Invesco DB Oil Fund, Invesco DB Precious Metals Fund, Invesco DB Gold Fund, Invesco DB Silver Fund, Invesco DB Base Metals Fund and Invesco DB Agriculture Fund (each, a “Fund” and collectively, the “Funds”), and each of the other Invesco DB Funds (the “Other Funds”) entered into a Custody Agreement (the “Custody Agreement”) with The Bank of New York Mellon, as Custodian (the “Custodian”). The Custody Agreement replaces the prior global custody agreement that had governed the custodial relationship among the Custodian, the Trust, the Funds, and the Other Funds.
Pursuant to the Custody Agreement, the Custodian shall maintain custody of cash and securities deposited by the Trust on behalf of each Fund or any Other Fund. The Trust shall pay the Custodian fees for such services as may be agreed upon from time to time during the term of the agreement, as well as reimbursement of certain expenses. The Custody Agreement has a four-year term, subject to automatic renewal for successive
one-year
periods unless the Trust or Custodian provides notice of
non-renewal
at least 90 days prior to the expiration of the current term or renewal term, as applicable. The foregoing description of the material terms of the Custody Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Custody Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Fund Administration and Accounting Agreement
On October 1, 2019, the Trust, on behalf of each Fund, and each of the Other Funds entered into a Fund Administration and Accounting Agreement (the “Administration Agreement”) with The Bank of New York Mellon, as Administrator (the “Administrator”). The Administration Agreement replaces the prior administration agreement that had governed the provision of administrative services by the Administrator to the Trust, the Funds and the Other Funds.
 

Pursuant to the Administration Agreement, the Administrator shall perform or supervise the performance of services necessary for the operation and administration of the Trust and each Fund (but excluding the making of investment decisions), including calculation of each Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) and the provision of accounting and other administrative services. The Trust shall pay the Administrator fees for such services as may be agreed upon from time to time during the term of the agreement, as well as reimbursement of certain expenses. The Administration Agreement has a four-year term, subject to automatic renewal for successive
one-year
periods unless the Trust or Administrator provides notice of
non-renewal
at least 90 days prior to the expiration of the current term or renewal term, as applicable. The foregoing description of the material terms of the Administration Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Administration Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Invesco Capital Management LLC, the Managing Owner of the Trust and each Fund, shall pay all fees and expenses incurred by the Trust and each Fund pursuant to the Custody Agreement and the Administration Agreement out of its own assets.
