Capital Group, at its discretion, currently waives some of its management fees or absorbs some expenses of certain Capital Group funds. Such waivers and absorptions may be terminated at any time, but can be expected to continue for certain portfolios until such time as such funds are of sufficient size to reasonably absorb all management fees and expenses incurred in their operations.
The management expense ratios for the portfolios are based on unaudited total expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and are expressed as an annualized percentage of daily average net assets during the period. Actual MERs may vary. The following lists the management expense ratios for Capital Group Global Equity Fund (Canada) before waivers or absorptions for the six months ended June 30, 2017: Series A, 2.01%; Series B, 2.19%, Series D, 1.47%; Series E, 1.95%; Series F, 0.90%; Series I, 0.05%.
Updated on a monthly basis.
