Capital Group New Economy Fund (LUX)

Growth and innovation in an evolving global economy


The Capital Group New Economy strategy’s founding concept is as timely now as it was at its inception more than three decades ago: to capitalise on the profound shift from a manufacturing-dominated economy to one based on services and information companies.
In this video, investment director Andy Budden takes you on a journey to find out how the fund captures exciting opportunities of tomorrow’s growth with innovation.

Andy has 29 years of investment experience, in which 18 years are with Capital Group. He is based in Singapore.

Why consider Capital Group New Economy Fund (LUX)?

Capital Group New Economy Fund (LUX), a Luxembourg-domiciled UCITS fund now available to investors in Asia and Europe, is managed by the same experienced team and shares the same investment objectives as the strategy from the US.
Investors looking to tap into the latest trends in disruption and technology often expose themselves to greater volatility by targeting narrow themes or sectors. We take an active approach to identify hidden and fast-growing companies in one portfolio, which could offer investors reduced risk and increased diversification.
This approach has helped the strategy deliver consistently attractive results for our investors for over 35 years.
