We believe in the power of partnerships.

PARTNERSHIP AND SUPPORT

We invest in our relationships.

Cultivating our relationship with you is a cornerstone of our business.    


For decades upon decades we’ve been working alongside you. Meeting with advisors in offices from Michigan to Miami, London to Luxembourg and Singapore to Sydney, we work hard to understand your business and help you succeed.

We build our relationships while keeping costs low for investors, thanks to our focus and scale.



We make long-term commitments.

As an advisor, helping your clients achieve investing success is the core function of your job.    


It takes more than market know-how. It’s about trust, honesty and confident advice.

That’s why we make the commitment to understand your needs so we can be a trusted partner for the long haul. When the industry changes, we change too. When technology evolves, we evolve with it. When your needs change, we’re there for you, giving you the service and support that’s right for your needs. And because we are privately owned, we can keep investing in the people, technology and infrastructure that we believe generates better outcomes for you and your clients.



We understand that it’s about lives, not only livelihoods.

We know that to support your clients, you need more than the right funds.  


Being a financial advisor means that sometimes you also have to be a coach, guidance counselor or trusted friend.

That’s why we offer so much more than investment choices. We can help guide your client conversations for important issues like managing emotions, understanding investing and staying in the market. We offer tools and calculators to help you and your clients plan for the future. You can turn to us for our market insights and industry knowledge. And, of course, there is our world-class service center, with representatives who take the time to answer questions, suggest resources and help you with anything you need to support your client-servicing efforts.

We support you in three ways: through distribution and service, industry engagement, and products and innovation. This way we can make sure we offer holistic support for whatever you need, whenever you need it.


Looking ahead.

As the industry grows and changes, we at Capital Group will grow and change with it.


In the coming year, we’ll evolve to simplify how we do business with you, through updated branding, digital experience and communication channels. We will launch new programs that offer a broader array of products and services curated to suit your needs. 

A long-term perspective can really pay off. Take a look at how an initial investment of $10,000 grew over 84 years, despite market ups and downs.

Your clients need portfolios as individual as they are. Our portfolio construction approach lets you customize a mix that works with the individual goals of your clients.

Figures shown are past results and are not predictive of results in future periods. Current and future results may be lower or higher than those shown. Share prices and returns will vary, so investors may lose money. Investing for short periods makes losses more likely. View fund expense ratios and returns

Returns shown at net asset value (NAV) have all distributions reinvested.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.

Investment results assume all distributions are reinvested and reflect applicable fees and expenses. When applicable, investment results reflect fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements, without which the results would have been lower. Read details about how waivers and/or reimbursements affect the results for each fund. View results and yields without fee waiver and/or expense reimbursement .
