Wow. I just saw a commercial for Capital Group (American Funds) during Sunday Night Football. I never would've thought this firm would be looking for publicity .... big as they are, they tend to prefer flying very much under the radar and avoid the media spotlight. Interesting.
I don't think that they know about this "closing" thing. It's a fairly new concept, and they aren't noted for quick embracement of this new stuff.
That said (in jest) American has done very well for us over the years.
