THE CAPITAL SYSTEM

Our system prioritizes superior and repeatable fund results.

Capital Group founder Jonathan Bell Lovelace in 1968.

Early in Capital Group history, our leaders realized that their funds would outlast the professionals who managed them.


They believed they had a responsibility to provide stability and management continuity to their investors, so they asked themselves a key question: If a portfolio manager left the firm, how could they keep funds going strong?

They pioneered a plan. By dividing funds into sections and giving each of the existing managers a portion to administer, no fund would be too dependent on a single person. 

This distinctive way of managing money became The Capital SystemSM. By incorporating the highest conviction investment ideas of each manager in a fund, we aim to both increase the diversity of those ideas and reduce the volatility of a fund, which can give investors a smoother ride in bumpy markets.



The best of both worlds.

The Capital System can give advisors and investors the best of both worlds: the upside of high-conviction ideas and the power of collaboration.


At Capital Group, home of American Funds, we assemble teams of managers who have different investing styles and complementary strengths to help foster a diversified investing approach.

The benefits of our multimanager approach can be boiled down to simple math: If a typical mutual fund has a star manager with 120 of her best ideas for investments, that’s a lot of ideas for one person to track. But imagine if the fund were divided among four managers, including each of their 30 highest conviction ideas — ideas they've explored inside out — that’s The Capital System.

Aim for a smoother ride.

A group of managers with complementary investing styles on a single fund can diversify risk.


Losing less when the market dips means investors stand to gain more when it climbs. And a steadier journey can help investors stay the course for the long term.


Built to last.

The Capital System has stood the test of time.


An innovative idea then and now, our distinctive multimanager system has become a defining feature of our success. Distinct in the market and diverse in its strategy, The Capital System has helped many of our investment vehicles pursue superior outcomes. 

Capital Group has managed investment strategies through funds and other vehicles over the years, the results of which have varied.
