Capital Group launches 12 new active-passive model portfolios

New models feature active mutual funds from Capital Group with passive ETFs from other firms

LOS ANGELES, February 1, 2023 — Capital Group, home of American Funds, has launched 12 active-passive model portfolios featuring Capital Group as the strategist.

“As the needs of financial professionals and investors continue to evolve so has the way we think about delivering our investment solutions to them,” said Kris Spazafumo, head of portfolio solutions and services at Capital Group. “We know that financial professionals are increasingly creating active-passive portfolios for their clients because they want both a lowcost, tax-efficient portfolio with the potential for excess returns.”

Like our existing all-active models, the new active-passive portfolios will leverage Capital Group’s objective-based investment philosophy, which emphasizes a strategic approach to portfolio construction.”
