Janet Yang is a financial analyst. Janet gave Capital Global an A rating for the continued excellence and success it has had since it was started. She noted that the firm that has more than $1 trillion in assets would only continue to produce significant returns for years to come because of its detailed approach to investing. She says that Capital Global was a company to be emulated because of its consistent investment culture and the great employees who work there. She singled out some of the portfolio managers at the company including Armour and Lovelace. They were essential to the enterprise because of their long-term thinking investment approach. Yang also pointed out that Capital Group was so good that most of its employees worked there their whole careers.

Capital Group recently entered into a partnership with Samsung Asset Management which is the investment arm of the technology company. The two enterprises would assist each other in asset management in the South Korean market. The deal outlined a few areas that they would focus on including distribution, retirement organization, and product and investment management. Armour said that it was difficult to make accurate statistical analyses with an aging population in Korea. The capital was brought in to help in coming up with reliable results.

Armour wrote an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal to advise investors on how to find good managers who will earn them good returns. He advises investors to look for active managers and not to settle for index funds that perform averagely because of the current market.
