At Capital Group, our clients’ portfolios aren’t built by a single manager. They’re built by diverse teams that bring different points of view and their own ideas to help investors reach their long-term goals.
This distinctive approach is part of our commitment to embrace all aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I). It helps us unlock the power that comes from building teams that encourage active voices at every level.
We believe the success of the people who invest with us depends on the people in whom we invest.
"Advancing diversity, equity and inclusion is a priority for us at Capital. Diverse perspectives and experiences create a culture that enables us to do meaningful work and have a positive impact on others."
Capital Group Chair and Chief Executive Officer
We invest in DE&I with the same boldness and rigor we use when investing on behalf of our clients. We're committed to meeting our 2025 DE&I goals and are proud that we've made strides in achieving them.
We know we still have work to do to keep striving for more diverse representation in leadership and throughout our organization. Beyond diversity, we also know it's only with a more inclusive team that we will be able to accomplish our mission: improving people's lives through successful investing.
Numbers can’t tell the whole story, but a closer look provides an at-a-glance snapshot of where we are and where we still need to go. These benchmarks will help guide us as we build a path forward.
We welcome the unique perspectives and experiences of all our associates, so they can say “I belong here.”
We believe diverse teams at all levels across Capital Group means better ideas and better decisions.
Like any business priority, our leaders are accountable for driving change and ensuring they’re fluent in the language and issues surrounding DE&I.
By partnering with key industry bodies and organizations — and empowering our associates to support philanthropies of their choice — we’re making a greater impact at the local community level.
From the beginning, Capital Group has been a company that's not afraid to be different and set ambitious goals. Founded during the Great Depression, we chose to set up on the West Coast rather than in the financial epicenter of Wall Street.
Today, we’re bringing this same ambition to DE&I and are learning along the way. We’re challenging norms. We’re setting higher benchmarks. And we’re pushing for a more inclusive workforce.
To make a difference, we are not afraid to do things differently.
We're proud that our Capital Communities represent diverse identities and interests. More than 70% of our global associates participate in at least one Community. These include race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, mental health and many more.
As a global leader, we recognize that the world around us is changing, so we’re changing the way we invest — both in funds and in our people. When we create an environment of integrity, respect and true collaboration, our people can carry these principles from the company to their community.
In 2022, Capital Group hosted its fifth Annual Roundtable Conversations on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, which was attended by more than 130 in-person and virtual participants. Attendees delved into the topic of allyship and represented 50 leading financial services firms from North America and Europe.
In 2022, Capital Group donated $6.2 million* to racial equity and social justice causes. We provided grants to more than 800 nonprofits dedicated to advancing racial equity and social justice. This support has gone both to new organizations recommended by associates and to long-standing community partners.
Supplier diversity and fair competition matter to us. That's why our corporate sponsorships help drive policy changes. These include the Women's Business Enterprise National Council, National LGBT Chamber of Commerce and the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
