Model results reflect changes, if any, in the underlying fund allocations over the model's lifetime. Underlying funds may have been added or removed during a model's lifetime. Allocations are rebalanced monthly. Rebalancing approaches may differ depending on where the account is held.
For historical underlying fund allocations, view model portfolios.
Market price returns are determined using the official closing price of the fund's shares and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.
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.
Capital Group exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are actively managed and do not seek to replicate a specific index. ETFs are bought and sold through an exchange at the then current market price, not net asset value (NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV when traded on an exchange. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. There can be no guarantee that an active market for ETFs will develop or be maintained, or that the ETF's listing will continue or remain unchanged.
Bond ratings, which typically range from AAA/Aaa (highest) to D (lowest), are assigned by credit rating agencies such as Standard & Poor's, Moody's and/or Fitch, as an indication of an issuer's creditworthiness. For most funds, unless otherwise noted below, if agency ratings differ, a security will be considered to have received the highest of those ratings, consistent with applicable investment policies. Securities in the Unrated category have not been rated by a rating agency; however, the investment adviser performs its own credit analysis and assigns comparable ratings that are used for compliance with applicable investment policies.
Bond ratings for the American Funds Portfolio Series relate to the securities held by the portfolios' underlying mutual funds, and if agency ratings of those holdings differ, the security will be considered to have received the highest of those ratings.
For the fund(s) noted, if agency ratings differ, consistent with applicable investment policies, a security will be considered to have received the middle rating. If only two agencies rate a security, the lower rating is used. If only one rates a security, that single rating is used.
(American High-Income Trust)
For the fund(s) noted, if agency ratings differ, such securities are placed in the lowest category, consistent with applicable investment policies.
(American High-Income Municipal Bond Fund)
Investments in mortgage-related securities involve additional risks, such as prepayment risk.
The use of derivatives involves a variety of risks, which may be different from, or greater than, the risks associated with investing in traditional securities, such as stocks and bonds.
Fund shares of U.S. Government Securities Fund are not guaranteed by the U.S. government.
Allocations may not achieve investment objectives. The portfolios' risks are directly related to the risks of the underlying funds.
Lower rated bonds are subject to greater fluctuations in value and risk of loss of income and principal than higher rated bonds.
The return of principal for bond funds and for funds with significant underlying bond holdings is not guaranteed. Fund shares are subject to the same interest rate, inflation and credit risks associated with the underlying bond holdings.
Income from municipal bonds may be subject to state or local income taxes and/or the federal alternative minimum tax (except for The Tax-Exempt Bond Fund of America). Certain other income, as well as capital gain distributions, may be taxable.
While not directly correlated to changes in interest rates, the values of inflation-linked bonds generally fluctuate in response to changes in real interest rates and may experience greater losses than other debt securities with similar durations.
American Funds Strategic Bond Fund may engage in frequent and active trading of its portfolio securities, which may involve correspondingly greater transaction costs, adversely affecting the fund's results.
Investing outside the United States involves risks, such as currency fluctuations, periods of illiquidity and price volatility. These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in developing countries.
Nondiversified funds have the ability to invest a larger percentage of assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, a single issuer could adversely affect a fund's results more than if the fund invested a smaller percentage of assets in securities of that issuer. See the applicable prospectus for details.
(American Funds Emerging Markets Bond Fund)
As nondiversified funds, Capital Group ETFs have the ability to invest a larger percentage of assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, a single issuer could adversely affect a fund's results more than if the fund invested a smaller percentage of assets in securities of that issuer. See the applicable prospectus for details.
State-specific tax-exempt funds are more susceptible to factors adversely affecting issuers of their states' tax-exempt securities than more widely diversified municipal bond funds.
There may have been periods when the results lagged the index(es).
The indexes are unmanaged and, therefore, have no expenses. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.
Index/Index blends for American Funds Model Portfolios are those that the Portfolio Solutions Committee believes most closely approximate the investment universe of a given model portfolio and do not specifically represent the benchmarks of the underlying funds in the American Funds model portfolio. Index blends are rebalanced monthly.

For Class F-2 shares of the funds listed below, the investment adviser has agreed to reimburse a portion of fund expenses through the date(s) listed below, without which results would have been lower and net expenses higher.
- American Funds Corporate Bond Fund (expiration: 8/1/2023)
- American Funds Short-Term Tax-Exempt Bond Fund (expiration: 5/1/2023)
- American Funds Tax-Exempt Fund of New York (expiration: 5/1/2023)

- Certain share classes were offered after the inception dates of some funds. Results for these shares prior to the dates of first sale are hypothetical based on the original share class results without a sales charge, adjusted for typical estimated expenses.
Results for certain funds with an inception date after the share class inception also include hypothetical returns because those funds' shares sold after the funds' date of first offering.
View dates of first sale and specific expense adjustment information.
- Class F-2 shares were first offered on 8/1/2008.
- YTD (year-to-date return): the net change in the value of the portfolio (in percentage terms) from January 1 of the current year to the date shown above. In cases where the fund was first offered in the current year, the net change in the value of the portfolio (in percentage terms) is shown since fund inception.
- Returns for less than one year are not annualized, but calculated as cumulative total returns.
- Holdings are weighted averages of the underlying funds. The underlying funds are managed, so holdings will change.
- Figures are based on holdings of the underlying funds, if applicable, as of date shown.
- The 30-day SEC yield for a fund of funds is calculated using the income earned by the fund over the past 12 months, which is then translated to a daily rate that is used to calculate the 30-day yield. The calculation for bond funds, however, reflects income earned over the past 30 days. As a result, during changing rate environments, the SEC yield for a fund of funds, whose underlying funds are primarily bond funds, may meaningfully differ from that of its underlying bond fund holdings.

Model portfolios are provided to financial intermediaries who may or may not recommend them to clients. The portfolios consist of an allocation of funds for investors to consider and are not intended to be investment recommendations. The portfolios are asset allocations designed for individuals with different time horizons, investment objectives, and risk profiles. Allocations may change and may not achieve investment objectives. If a cash allocation is not reflected in a model, the intermediary may choose to add one. Capital Group does not have investment discretion or authority over investment allocations in client accounts. Rebalancing approaches may differ depending on where the account is held. Investors should talk to their financial professional for information on other investment alternatives that may be available. In making investment decisions, investors should consider their other assets, income, and investments. Visit capitalgroup.com for current allocations.
