Complaints handling process
At Capital Group we aim to help people reach their financial goals by providing them with superior client services. We accept that complaints provide an opportunity to reassess certain processes and adapt or improve them to obtain an increased level of client satisfaction. Therefore, we have a complaints’ handling policy in place to ensure all clients’ complaints are handled in a proper manner and are afforded the correct level of attention. For purposes of this process, a “client” is defined as an investor that receives discretionary portfolio management services or investment advice from Capital Group or a shareholder in a Capital Group Luxembourg registered fund (SICAV).
If you have a complaint
We will acknowledge every complaint made by a client in writing within a period which shall not exceed 10 business days after our receipt of the complaint.
We will answer the complainant, in writing, telephone call or in person, without undue delay, in a period which shall not exceed one month after the date we provide written acknowledgement to the complainant of receipt of his or her complaint.
