Your financial adviser is also your best resource for additional share purchases and other account transactions. He or she can offer advice and ensure your decisions fit your long-term financial plan.
However, you can also buy shares here on our website, by phone, by mail or by bank wire. See Options for managing your account for details.
To purchase additional shares by mail, please follow these instructions:
- Send a check made payable to either American Funds Service Company or the fund in which you are investing.
- For retirement plan accounts for which Capital Bank and Trust Company (CB&T) is the custodian, please make your check payable to Capital Bank and Trust Company.
- Include an investment form — from your most recent confirmation or a booklet of investment forms — with your check and mail it to the American Funds Service Company address in your region. Booklets of investment forms can be ordered by calling us. However, you may also send a letter providing your account number(s) with your check.
To transfer money from your bank account to buy shares of the American Fund(s) of your choice, you first need to enroll in FundsLink®. This free service links your American Funds account(s) to your checking or savings account.
You can sign up online and purchase fund shares immediately. If you prefer, you can download the applicable FundsLink form:
If you are already enrolled in FundsLink, you can buy shares now.
You can invest up to $100,000 per day on the web or by phone. After we receive and accept your purchase request, the shares will be credited to your American Funds account(s), generally the same business day. Your predesignated checking or savings account will be debited for the investment amount. Investments may not be redeemed for 10 business days after purchase. Requests received after the close of the New York Stock Exchange (4 p.m. Eastern time) will be invested at the next business day’s applicable offering price. Please note that some financial institutions may charge a fee for electronic transactions.
Requests sent or received after the close of the New York Stock Exchange (4 p.m. Eastern time) will be processed the next business day.
