Fueled by inclusion.

Diversity, equity and inclusion are at our core

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. 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.

From our chairman

"We’re committed to creating an environment of belonging, where associates can bring their true, best selves to work."

Tim Armour
Capital Group Chairman

Measuring our change

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 believe in long-term results

    We invest in our DE&I goals with the same boldness and rigor that we have when investing on behalf of our clients. And while we’ve made strides, we know we still have work to do to keep striving for more diverse representation in leadership and throughout our organization.

    That’s why we’ve launched inclusive hiring and promotion training — to help create a fair, consistent and equitable candidate experience.

    It’s only with a more inclusive team that we will be able to accomplish our mission: improving people’s lives through successful investing.

    2025 goals:

    >40%

    Representation of women among global senior managers

    >10%

    Representation of Black/African Americans among U.S. associates

    >7%

    Representation of Black/African Americans among senior managers (in the U.S.)

    >15%

    Representation of underrepresented minorities among senior managers (in the U.S.)

    The courage to do things differently

    As a company that left the financial epicenter of Wall Street during the Great Depression and set itself up on the West Coast, 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.


    Innovative development programs

    From recruitment to leadership, our flagship programs are designed to both mentor and advance the career paths of underrepresented associates.

    Programs like CAPtivate and Women Leading Capital focus on female employees while CAP@city and Capital Emerging Leader are focused on racial diversity across the board. 


    Inclusive benefits

    We have tailored our benefits and wellness programs to support the needs of the diversity of our associates. That means resources for early-career team members, those caring for aging loved ones, single parents, LGBTQ+ families, transgender associates and more, all with a focus on physical and mental well-being.


    Addressing bias in the recruiting process

    To help mitigate any potential unconscious bias from the early-career hiring process, our Talent Acquisition Team stopped sharing résumés with hiring managers, so they could focus on the candidate — their background, experience and thought process.

    As a result of our DE&I efforts, we hired a more racially and gender diverse pool of interns, with 50/50 gender balance and 58% representation from racial minorities.


    Fair pay

    At Capital Group, our pay practices focus on fairness. Each role within our organization is compensated based on the responsibilities of that role and the experience and performance of the associate — irrespective of race, ethnicity or gender identity.

    And we're proud to say that a fair pay study conducted by an independent consultant demonstrated that we have pay equity broadly in the U.S.

    Capital Communities

    Our 40+ Capital Communities — sometimes called associate resource groups — empower our people to help lift the voices of everyone at Capital Group. Capital Communities are driven by our associates who unite around common experiences and passions, becoming allies for inclusion and equity. Capital Communities represent a rich diversity of identities and interests, including race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, mental health and much more. The list is always growing, as our employees raise their hands to create new Communities for our people to connect.

    Improving our culture.
    Impacting our community.

    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.

    Industry leadership

    For the past few years, Capital Group has hosted the Roundtable Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion. This year, the event included a virtual assembly of 120 wealth managers, broker-dealers, and diversity, equity and inclusion practitioners representing 53 U.S.-based financial services firms. Over three half-day sessions, the participants engaged in immersive learning and shared best practices intended to advance diversity and promote more inclusive cultures across our industry.

    Global citizenship report

    Our associates are working to enrich their communities, reduce their environmental impact, create a more diverse and inclusive workspace, and improve people’s lives through successful investing.

    Promoting local, minority-owned businesses

    As a corporate sponsor of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce and the National Minority Supplier Development Council, we are actively driving policy changes to ensure supplier diversity and fair competition in the market.

    Environmental, social and governance (ESG)

    Putting ESG at the core of every one of our investment decisions is simply the right thing to do — not only because it helps create a more sustainable world and a more equitable workforce, but, as many quantitative reports have proven, it can also generate better long-term outcomes for our clients.

    Racial justice special match

    Capital Group’s racial justice special match provides the opportunity for every associate to support eligible nonprofits dedicated to transforming the overarching system of racial bias across institutions and society.
