Capital Group is one of the oldest and largest asset management companies in the world, managing multi-asset, equity, and fixed income investment strategies for different types of investors. Since 1931, Capital Group has been singularly focused on delivering superior, consistent results for long-term investors using high-conviction portfolios, rigorous research, and individual accountability. Today Capital Group works with financial intermediaries and institutions to manage over US$2.7 trillion as of 31 December 2021 in long-term assets for investors around the world. Capital Group has an integrated global research network of more than 400 investment professionals and its portfolio managers have an average of 26 years of investment experience.
Capital Group manages equity assets through three investment groups. These groups make investment and proxy voting decisions independently. Fixed income investment professionals provide fixed income research and investment management across the Capital organization; however, for securities with equity characteristics, they act solely on behalf of one of the three equity investment groups.
