Sustainability

Sustainability isn't just something we practice; it is part of who we are as a company and as global citizens.

With an ownership structure that directs over 40% of our profits to fund medical research, we attract employees motivated to make a difference and develop investment teams who make Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria a fundamental part of their analysis.

Many investors are recognizing the value of investing in strategies that seek to improve our collective world. But some fear this approach can compromise investment outcomes. At American Century Investments, we are committed to delivering investment performance and making a difference. We are proud of our history of helping clients achieve financial success while also impacting society in a positive way.

As of 12/31/2020, more than 80% of American Century's AUM are subject to the incorporation of ESG factors into the investment process employed by each strategy's portfolio managers. When portfolio managers incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into an investment strategy, they consider those issues in conjunction with traditional financial analysis. When selecting investments, portfolio managers incorporate ESG factors into the portfolio's existing asset class, time horizon, and objectives. Therefore, ESG factors may limit the investment opportunities available, and the portfolio may perform differently than those that do not incorporate ESG factors. Portfolio managers have ultimate discretion in how ESG issues may impact a portfolio's holdings, and depending on their analysis, investment decisions may not be affected by ESG factors.
