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.
“DE&I compels us to take bold actions that have lasting impact on our associates, our communities, and the millions of investors we serve.”
Capital Group Chair and Chief Executive Officer
We invest in DE&I with the same boldness and rigour 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.
As a company that launched in Los Angeles on the U.S. west coast during the Great Depression rather than the financial epicentre of Wall Street, we are not afraid to be different and set ambitious goals.
Today, we’re bringing those goals 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 want to hire and develop associates who can share their unique perspectives and experiences with Capital Group. The communities in which we live and work are an important source of that talent. That's why we partner with leading diversity organizations to reach underrepresented candidates.
Our innovative development and outreach programs offer a path to advancement. And we're proud of our ongoing efforts to ensure pay equity throughout the entire organization.
We're building a culture of belonging where all associates can thrive. We provide inclusive benefits and wellness programs to support early career team members, associates caring for aging loved ones, single parents, LGBTQ+ families, transgender associates and more.
At Capital Group, DE&I is as important as any other business priority. Our leaders must understand the relevant data, language and issues. Their charge is to create and sustain an inclusive environment for their team members.
Accountability isn't only for our leaders. Beginning in 2021, every associate has a personalized DE&I performance objective included in their annual review process.
Making a difference in our communities is a core part of our culture. This commitment spans all parts of our business, from individual efforts to the highest-level strategies. Many of our associates are active volunteers and donate generously to nonprofit organizations. We believe in responsible sourcing and supplier diversity. We also incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment process.
In 2021, Capital Group hosted its fourth Roundtable Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion. The event was a virtual assembly of 300 wealth managers, broker-dealers and DE&I practitioners representing 89 leading financial services firms in North America and Europe. Over two days, they shared best practices to advance and promote diversity and inclusive cultures across the industry.
In 2021, Capital Group donated US$2.2 million to racial equity and social justice causes. We provided grants to more than 650 nonprofits dedicated to ending discrimination. 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.
We believe ESG is key to successful investing. That's why we've integrated it into our investment process. Our commitment to ESG not only helps create a more sustainable world but can lead to better long-term results for investors.
