Investment insights from Capital Group

Introducing our approach to investment stewardship

Even as ESG factors and approaches evolve, we are striving to meet our clients’ needs in this area in a way that reflects Capital Group’s core values. This iteration of our stewardship report demonstrates our continued commitment to investment stewardship and ESG integration.




  • In 2021, we tracked 965 meetings about specific ESG concerns across the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).  
  • We also made significant investments in our people, data and technology to better integrate ESG into our investment process, The Capital SystemSM.
  • Our voting activity continues to be led by our investment group and our Global Stewardship and Engagement (GSE) team.
