Best Execution Policy

When executing portfolio transactions on behalf of funds and client accounts, we strive to obtain “best execution” (the most favorable total price reasonably attainable under the circumstances), taking into account a variety of factors.

Proxy Voting

We consider proxy voting an important part of the investment process and seek to vote proxies in the best interests of our fund investors and clients. View the policies and procedures that govern our proxy voting activity.

Code of Ethics

Over the years, we have earned a reputation for the highest integrity. All Capital associates are expected to maintain the very highest ethical standards when conducting business. To ensure that our own interests are never placed ahead of the interests of our clients, the Capital Group Companies has adopted a Code of Ethics (PDF).

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses or the collective investment trust's Characteristics statement, which can be obtained from a financial professional, Capital or your relationship manager, and should be read carefully before investing.
