The information in relation to the index is provided for context and illustration only. The fund is an actively managed UCITS. It is not managed in reference to a benchmark. Past results are not a guarantee of future results.
We are living in a relatively low-yield world with rising uncertainty over geopolitical risks and inflation
The conservative, income-oriented approach of this fund could be ideal in the current market environment.
This fund aims to address investors’ need for equity growth without excessive exposure to volatility.
By combining global high dividend equities with low correlating high quality fixed income instruments, such as government bonds and investment grade credit, the fund aims to achieve resilience through a well-diversified portfolio.
As 2022 continues to unfold, this fund is positioned to address near- and long-term opportunities and challenges by having exposure to:
Firms with a strong dividend-paying culture
Dividend compounders with healthy free cash flow and balance sheets
Companies with clear, sustainable pricing power to combat inflation
The fund’s primary objectives are to achieve a level of current income that exceeds the average yield on US stocks and provide growth of income, expressed in USD, by investing in income-producing securities, including common stocks and bonds. Growth of capital is a secondary objective.
Capital Income Builder combines higher yielding and dividend-growing companies selected through a stringent eligibility process to seek income and drive returns, alongside an anchor of high-quality US-dollar denominated bonds for greater stability, especially in times of volatility.

Taking the long view
We base our investment decisions on a long-term perspective, aligning our goals with the interests of your clients. Superior, long-term returns are our goal. Our portfolio managers are rewarded for their results, not the level of assets they manage.
Breadth of experience
Our process enables individual investment professionals to act on their highest convictions while limiting the risk associated with isolated decision-making. We draw on their diverse experience to build the portfolio.
Deep, fundamental research
The scale and scope of our proprietary research, built over 90 years, allows us to uncover what we believe to be compelling investment opportunities for our clients. Investment analysts conduct thousands of research visits globally every year. This research is then combined with comprehensive macro analysis. This approach has been essential to the results we have delivered to our investors.

Risk factors you should consider before investing:
This material is not intended to provide investment advice or be considered a personal recommendation.
The value of investments and income from them can go down as well as up and you may lose some or all of your initial investment.
Past results are not a guide to future results.
If the currency in which you invest strengthens against the currency in which the underlying investments of the fund are made, the value of your investment will decrease. Currency hedging seeks to limit this, but there is no guarantee that hedging will be totally successful.
