Fund Description

The Capital World Growth and Income Fund (CWGIX) aims to provide investors with a solid income stream for their portfolios. To do this the fund invests primarily in blue chip stocks that have a reliable dividend history as well as government and corporate bonds for an added source of yield. It should also be noted that CWGIX invests heavily in stocks outside of the U.S., giving investors diversity from an equity standpoint. The fund does note that it may invest up to 10% of its assets in speculative-grade bonds, which are well-known for their high yields but also their high volatility.

CWGIX would likely not act as a core holding in your portfolio, but rather a complement to an already well-established set of holdings. Value investors, or those looking to rely on a steady income stream will be especially enticed by this product and its quarterly dividend. The fund does a great job of making itself easily accessible by maintaining a minimum investment threshold of just $250. The fund is managed by eight individuals who combine to boast more than 175 years of experience in the investing world. CWGIX charges 80 basis points for investment.
