It's been a while since I've had contact with the American Funds/Capital Group, and it wasn't on the retail side, but FWIW, it has always been known as a good organization. The funds tend to be very large and run by teams (Mr X gets 13%, Ms Y runs 7%, etc.), but for some reason they tend to make good use of the firm's thorough research. Whether that's continuing today, at high enough levels to earn the fees, I couldn't say.
