Capital World Global Investors (CWGI) is the investment adviser to the American Funds Group, a family of 30 funds marketed to individuals exclusively through financial advisers and other intermediaries. American Funds are also used as investment vehicles for 401ks, other retirement plans, variable annuities and 529 college savings plans. The funds have the following characteristics: (1) a long-term, value-oriented approach (2) long-established, global research (3) a multiple portfolio counselor system that combines teamwork with individual accountability (4) experienced, long-tenured investment professionals and (5) a commitment to low operating expenses, among the lowest in the fund industry. CWGI uses a Multiple Portfolio Counselor System. The assets of each fund are divided into smaller, more manageable portions. Each portion is managed by a portfolio counselor who operates autonomously, investing his or her portion as though it were an entire fund (subject to fund objectives and overall guidelines). Research analysts typically manage a segment as well, bringing their expertise directly to bear on the fund's results. Portfolio counselors are free to make their own decisions. As a fund's assets grow, new counselors can be added. Investment decisions are based on internal research. Equity research is comprehensive and bottom-up while at the same time constantly monitoring broader economic, political, currency and interest rate trends. Investment research is proprietary and used solely by CWGI portfolio managers.

Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Strauss has a strict definition of value. Our equity portfolios exhibit below-market price-to-earnings ratios, below-market price-to-book ratios, and above-market dividend yields, regardless of market conditions. As a result, each of our clients is assured that we will do our part to maintain the style integrity of their overall portfolio. In fixed income, we define value as temporarily mispriced securities with yield-to-maturity advantages over Treasury bonds of comparable maturity. We identify each opportunity from the bottom up, building a duration-neutral portfolio designed to "out-yield" the market. In this way, Barrow Hanley seeks to achieve higher total returns for our fixed income clients with below-benchmark volatility. Mutual Fund Sub-Advisory Services Stability of investment team, strict adherence to style and uniformity of process are hallmarks of Barrow Hanley. Through an investment in a Barrow Hanley sub-advised mutual fund, individual investors are able to access the research-driven, bottom-up approach to active security selection that is utilized by major pension plans, foundations and endowments, and other institutional investors worldwide. Barrow Hanley currently serves as a sub-advisor to more than 30 equity and fixed income mutual funds. In addition to sub-advising an array of nationally-recognized mutual funds in the U.S., we sub-advise a number of internationally-based funds.
