We believe in a distinctive way of managing money.  



Our system prioritises consistent and repeatable fund results.

Jonathan Bell Lovelace 1968

Early in Capital Group history, our leaders realised that their funds would outlast the professionals who managed them.

They believed they had a responsibility to provide stability and management continuity to their investors, so they asked themselves a key question: If a portfolio manager left the firm, how could they keep funds going strong?

They pioneered a plan. By dividing portfolios into sections and giving each of the existing managers a portion to administer, no portfolio would be too dependent on a single person.

This distinctive way of managing money became The Capital SystemSM. By incorporating the highest conviction investment ideas of each manager in a portfolio, we aim to both increase the diversity of those ideas and reduce the volatility of a fund, which can give investors a smoother ride in bumpy markets.

The best of both worlds.

The Capital System can give investors the best of both worlds: the upside of high-conviction ideas and the power of collaboration.

At Capital Group, we assemble teams of managers who have different investing styles and complementary strengths to help foster a diversified investing approach.

The benefits of our multiple portfolio manager approach can be boiled down to simple maths: If, for example, a fund has a star manager with 120 investment ideas, that’s a lot of ideas for one person to keep track of. But imagine if the fund were divided among four managers, including each of their 30 highest conviction ideas — ideas they've explored inside out — that’s the strength of The Capital System.

A long term perspective.

For decades, many of our strategies have delivered strong long-term results, helping investors stay on the path to achieving their financial goals.

As an example, take a look at one of our largest and longest established global equity strategies, the Capital Group New Perspective strategy. Here we show the results of a US$10,000 hypothetical investment in the MSCI ACWI, a key global equity index, and compare it with the long-term results delivered by the New Perspective strategy since it was launched over 45 years ago.
