may be having serious problems with outflows, but it still has the best relationship network of any mutual fund family.

of advisors, released today by Cogent Research
. Sixteen percent of advisors surveyed said that they "feel the strongest connection" with American Funds. Franklin Templeton
rounded out the top three.
Cogent's Advisor Touchpoints 2012
survey also queried ETF producers on which firm has the strongest connection with advisors. BlackRock's iShares
was the clear winner here, being named by 37 percent of the providers polled.
