New Adobe feature cannot be used to sign forms and applications

 

To keep client paperwork moving smoothly and avoid delays, be sure to use only the following approved options when signing documents and forms:

  • Electronically sign.  This option is available if your firm has a signed agreement with American Funds, and     signatures are completed within the vendor tool used by your firm (e.g., Docusign).
        or
  • Sign paperwork by hand.

We cannot accept forms or applications with imaged signatures created by Adobe Acrobat DC’s (Reader or Pro version) “Fill & Sign” feature.


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, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
