Capital Group New Perspective Fund (LUX)

Launched on 31 March 1973 in the US, New Perspective is one of Capital Group’s most well-known global equity strategies. Originally offered only to US-based investors, the strategy is now available to investors via Capital Group New Perspective Fund (LUX) - which is managed by the same experienced team and follows the same approach as the US strategy.

Capital Group New Perspective Strategy: A New Perspective on Global Investing

Portfolio manager, Jody Jonsson, discusses what makes Capital Group’s New Perspective strategy different, and outlines the reasons behind a focus on quality multinationals.

Identifying global champions of today and tomorrow

Our portfolio managers use bottom-up research to identify strong multinationals. We believe that investing in early-stage multinationals can potentially offer investors growth and investing in established multinationals can help provide resilience.

Capturing opportunities from changing global trade patterns

For over 45 years, the New Perspective strategy has stayed relevant by using bottom-up research to identify companies that have driven and benefited from changing global trade patterns, and economic and political relationships.

A high-conviction, repeatable, long-term approach using the Capital SystemSM

The managers aim to identify companies that stand to gain from long-term trends and market changes, through this the New Perspective strategy has been able to navigate and gain from changes in global trade patterns.

Since March 1973, the strategy has delivered 11.5% since strategy launch and demonstrated resilience during market declines. It has outpaced the index2 100% of the time in rolling three-year down markets, and 80% of the time in up markets3. The strategy has also generated five times more wealth than an investment in the index.
