Summary of the Investigation

Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is investigating the Capital Retirement Savings Plan (the “Capital Group 401(k)”).  The investigation pertains to whether or not Capital Group Companies or its subsidiaries or affiliates (“Capital Group”) violated federal law by limiting the fund options in the 401(k) plan to almost exclusively Capital Group affiliated funds and failing to include or consider funds from other companies that offered lower fees and better performance.

Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), the federal law that sets minimum standards for retirement plans (including the Capital Group 401(k) Plan), persons or entities who exercise discretionary control or authority over plan management or plan assets are required to act in the best interest of the plan’s participants when making investment decisions concerning employees’ retirement savings in the company plan.  Cohen Milstein is investigating whether Capital Group failed to select or retain 401(k) Plan investments that were in the best interests of participants and instead chose and retained the investments that most benefited Capital Group’s bottom-line.  The investigation also concerns whether the funds available in Capital Group’s 401(k) Plan caused employees to pay excess fees and whether the chosen funds underperformed compared to other available comparable funds.
