I am looking for a very specific company but I don't remember the name...?

I know these things about it:

1. It is a subsidiary of the Capital Guardian companies

2. It sells wholesale mutual funds (I don't know what that means)

3. They have sales offices across the U.S. including one in Hawaii

4. Their name is something like _ _ Research ( I'm not sure if the word was research but the pattern was something like one letter, another letter, and a word.
