Fund Description

The American Funds Capital Income Builder Fund Class A (CAIBX) is an actively managed “go anywhere” fund designed to provide above-average current income. CAIBX also looks to grow that income stream in the future. The fund bets its portfolio on a wide range of asset classes, including stocks, bonds, and hybrid securities from around the world. Dividend-paying equities make up around 60 to 80% of the fund’s portfolio. Further, roughly 50% of the fund is in international investments. Expenses for the fund are low before adding in CAIBX’s sales loads.

Given the fund’s wide mandate, CAIBX could make a great core position for a moderately conservative investor. The fund is managed by Capital Research and Management Company.
