American Equity Funds

Investing in an equity fund basically means buying shares in companies trading on the stock market. Equities have the potential to drive real growth in your investment portfolio and often out-perform safer investments such as cash and bonds over the long term. Investing in equities means that you can receive capital growth through potential increases in the share price, and you may also gain from any potential dividends paid by the individual companies.

Investors looking to invest in companies across the Americas may choose from the following expertly selected, actively managed funds.
