A new perspective on global investing


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 strategies1. Originally offered only to US-based investors, it is now available to investors in Europe and Asia via Capital Group New Perspective Fund (LUX) - which is managed by the same experienced team and follows the same approach as the US strategy.


Introducing the New Perspective strategy

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 that investing in established multinationals can help provide resilience.


Early-stage multinationals


Established multinationals

Capturing opportunities from changing global trade patterns

New Perspective seeks out companies that stand to gain from changing global trade patterns. These companies are also often at the forefront of creating, driving and shaping the trends of the future.
