¹A Note About Risk:

The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions. Different investment styles tend to shift in and out of favor depending upon market and economic conditions, as well as investor sentiment. A portfolio may outperform or underperform other portfolios that employ a different investment style, and the stocks selected by the portfolio manager may not increase in value as predicted. Because this portfolio may, at times, concentrate its investments in a specific area, during such times it may be subject to greater risks and market fluctuations than when the portfolio represents a broader range of securities. Non-U.S. investing involves special risk considerations, including economic and political conditions, inflation rates and currency fluctuations. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives will be met. Dividends and yields represent past performance and there is no guarantee that they will continue to be paid. The information is not intended as a personalized recommendation or fiduciary advice and should not be relied upon for investment, accounting, legal or tax advice. 

Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) are investment services provided by American Century Investment Management, Inc. (ACIM) a federally registered investment advisor. SMAs are not available for purchase directly through ACIM. Client portfolios are managed based on investment instructions or advice provided by the client's advisor or program sponsor. Management and performance of individual accounts may differ from those of the model portfolio as a result of advice or instruction by the client's advisor, account size, client-imposed restrictions, different implementation practices, the timing of client investments, market conditions, contributions, withdrawals and other factors.
