Career History
Partner & Portfolio Manager
Current

Capital Research & Management invests globally in equities and fixed-income securities. The firm also offers balanced investment strategies that are customized to meet each client''s unique investment objectives and financial needs. The firm uses a multiple portfolio counselor system. Assets of each fund are divided into smaller, more manageable portions. Each portion is managed by a portfolio manager 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 (about 20% of the fund''s assets). Investment decisions are based on internal research. Capital Research & Management''s equity investment strategies are based on a comprehensive, bottom-up approach. In addition, the firm constantly monitors broader economic, political, currency and interest rate trends. Their fixed-income investment strategy takes a more top-down view of the factors impacting the markets. Core fixed-income portfolios are constructed based on duration, sector allocation and security selection.

CR&M maintains an investment philosophy that is distinguished by four key beliefs: solid research is fundamental to sound investment decisions; investment decisions should not be made lightly; a long-term approach; and the Capital System. The firm's investment decisions are subject to a fund's or account's objectives, policies and restrictions and the oversight of the appropriate investment-related committees of the firm and its investment divisions. They generally invest in equity securities, fixed-income securities or a combination of both and in U.S. and international equity securities, including common stocks, preferred stocks and convertible securities, of companies with varying market capitalizations. CR&M typically builds portfolios for funds and accounts from the bottom-up using rigorous fundamental research to find attractive investments and manage risks.
