Our investment

approach is distinctive.

A BETTER APPROACH

The Capital System combines independent high-conviction decision-making with the diversity that comes from multiple perspectives. It is designed to provide continuity and help investors pursue long-term investment success.

HOW IT WORKS

Our portfolios house diverse perspectives.

Multi-manager structure

 

We divide portfolios into segments, each run by an individual manager. The managers represent a diverse set of backgrounds, styles and approaches. Typically, they have high levels of personal ownership in the portfolios they manage.1


Our portfolios feature high-conviction investments.

Promoting independent thinking

 

While managers collaborate and share insights, each invests independently according to their strongest convictions. The resulting portfolios are a diverse collection of investment ideas, not just one manager’s perspective. This approach creates the potential for portfolios to fare well in a variety of market conditions.


Our investments are grounded in fundamental research.

Research-driven investing

 

Our investment analysts hold thousands of meetings with companies each year. Visiting factories, facilities and headquarters helps drive deep operational understanding and informs all our investment decisions.


Our investment analysts do more than make recommendations.

The Research Portfolio

 

At most firms, analysts only recommend investments, but at Capital Group they typically have the opportunity to actually invest in their highest conviction ideas. Most funds have a portion of fund assets, called the Research Portfolio, managed by a group of investment analysts.


Our system provides management continuity and a consistent approach.

A time-tested system

 

Our multiple manager system supports our commitment to investors with long-term goals. It has allowed us to navigate near-term noise and periods of economic and market uncertainty in pursuit of key goals.


Designed to help investors pursue long-term investment success

Aligned with investor goals

 

Our portfolio managers’ compensation emphasizes results over longer periods. 2

THE POWER OF DIVERSITY

Bringing it all together

The Capital System builds portfolios that house multiple, disparate views. This diversity creates the potential for portfolios to fare well in a variety of market conditions.

1Does not apply to investment professionals who reside outside of their fund’s country of registration. Portfolio managers of Capital Group’s Canadian-registered funds are prohibited from investing in the funds if they reside outside of Canada.

2Compensation paid to our investment professionals is heavily influenced by results over one-, three-, five- and eight-year periods, with increasing weight placed on each succeeding measurement period to encourage a long-term investment approach.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

Capital Group manages equity assets through three investment groups. These groups make investment and proxy voting decisions independently. Fixed income investment professionals provide fixed income research and investment management across the Capital organization; however, for securities with equity characteristics, they act solely on behalf of one of the three equity investment groups.
