The Value of a Financial Adviser

Why we believe all investors can benefit from the experience and guidance an investment professional can offer.

We believe the guidance of an investment professional is essential to successful financial planning. That’s why the American Funds are sold through financial advisers.

Financial advisers can provide many valuable services. They can help you:

  • assess your financial goals, investment time frame and tolerance for risk, and monitor them over time
  • allocate your assets according to your financial situation
  • analyze the risks and potential rewards of various investments
  • understand the value of a long-term investment perspective and a diversified asset mix
  • take advantage of the many services we offer

In addition, financial advisers will provide support and guidance during difficult times, such as:

  • market downturns
  • political turmoil
  • wide interest rate or currency fluctuations
  • times of personal financial stress

If you do not have a financial adviser, we would be glad to help you find one in your area. Please call us for assistance.


Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
