We are committed to offering a variety of investments to meet the needs of insurance companies. When seeking investments to make available in your defined contribution or variable annuity products, American Funds can help.
Our widely recognized mutual funds and American Funds Target Date Retirement Series® funds are available for your defined contribution plans. Additionally, the American Funds Insurance Series® (AFIS) funds, including managed risk funds, cover all the major asset classes for your variable annuity products.
Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.
Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses or the funds’ characteristics statement, which can be obtained from a financial professional or your relationship manager, and should be read carefully before investing.
Futures contracts may not provide an effective hedge of the underlying securities because changes in the prices of futures contracts may not track those of the securities they are intended to hedge. In addition, the managed risk strategy may not effectively protect the fund from market declines and will limit the fund's participation in market gains. The use of the managed risk strategy could cause the fund's return to lag that of the underlying fund in certain rising market conditions.
The Capital Group companies manage equity assets through three investment groups. These groups make investment and proxy voting decisions independently. Fixed income investment professionals provide fixed income research and investment management across the Capital organization; however, for securities with equity characteristics, they act solely on behalf of one of the three equity investment groups.
