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 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 (usually about 20% of the fund's assets), 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.
