Capital Group Capital Income Builder™ (Canada)

Celebrating 5 years of equity-income investing for Canadians


An endowment-like approach

Over 35 years ago in the U.S., the Capital Income Builder strategy was launched to provide investors with an endowment-like experience.

The vision was to seek: 

current income

Income growth
over time

Downside protection


In October 2018, we introduced Capital Income Builder to Canadian investors.



The fund is globally diversified, focused on prudently generating a growing stream of income and current income that exceeds the yield paid on U.S. companies in general. It takes a flexible equity-income approach using a mix of stocks and bonds, with the potential to lead to equity-like returns with less volatility than global markets.


A disciplined eligibility process

Capital Income Builder’s investment professionals adhere to a strict methodology to select equities that meet strict income and income-growth requirements, investing globally across the spectrum of dividend payers and growers.

A global team of analysts seeks out the best dividend opportunities from around the world. 

Investment analysts review 20 years of dividend history and forecast three-year dividend growth.

Portfolio managers carefully review and select companies from those that emerge from the eligibility process.

A flexible, multi-asset approach

As a multi-asset fund, Capital Income Builder navigates different market environments driven by the availability of income.

It has the flexibility to add high-quality bonds with negative or low correlations to dividend stocks, to help add stable sources of income in pursuit of its objectives.

Built by experienced and proven portfolio managers

The mandate’s 12 portfolio managers have a median of 30 years of investment experience.

70 investment analysts, with 16 years of median experience, also manage a portion of the portfolio.

The Capital System™ enables individual investment professionals to act on their highest convictions, while limiting the risk associated with isolated decision making.
