The Capital Group Companies, Inc. Key Developments

Capital Group Launches New Fixed-Income Fund: Strategic Bond Fund

Capital Group announced that it has launched its new fixed-income fund, American Funds Strategic Bond FundSM (SBF). SBF takes a distinctive approach to multisector investing and will be benchmarked against the Barclays US Aggregate Index. The fund's strategy can be considered a flexible core-plus strategy, where investors have the potential to benefit from greater flexibility in changing interest rate environments. At the same time, the strategy will remain focused on achieving the fund's total return objective and providing diversification to the equity market. The fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in bonds and other debt securities.

Envestnet | PMC Announces Partnership with Capital Group's American Funds

Envestnet | PMC has partnered with Capital Group's American Funds to launch the American Funds/PMC Active Core Portfolios. This new series of mutual fund portfolios is constructed by selecting active managers whose funds have both high manager ownership and low expense ratios-characteristics that have tended to outperform market indexes and the broader universe of actively managed funds. In addition, the American Funds/PMC Active Core Portfolios enable RIAs and broker-dealers to seamlessly transition directly held accounts to an advisory platform. The Active Core Portfolios, built and managed by PMC, spread risk across diverse types and classes of mutual funds with these two characteristics. The funds in each portfolio can invest in traditional equity and fixed-income securities as core exposures and can allocate to commodities and bank loans as satellites, and are managed by American Funds and other active managers that meet PMC's ongoing due diligence criteria.
