Investment Groups

The Capital Group manages equity assets through three investment groups, and a separate fixed-income group.

More than 50 years ago, we developed an original approach to investment management that combines teamwork with individual accountability. Our investment professionals are at the heart of The Capital SystemSM. Located around the world, they:

  • Focus on a long-term perspective
  • Pay close attention to risk
  • Invest in their highest conviction ideas on a company-by-company basis

The Capital Group companies manage equities through three investment groups that make investment and proxy voting decisions independently, and fixed income through a separate fixed-income group.
