For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Morningstar ratings are based upon Investor class of shares, unless otherwise indicated. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Risk-Managed Investing for Retirement. One Choice® Target Date Portfolios are target-date funds designed to help investors build toward the retirement they envision, while reducing the chances their money will run short.
Seeks the highest total return consistent with its asset mix.
One Choice Target Date Portfolios aim to help investors stay on course even as economic and market conditions change. The portfolios' asset allocation glide path is designed to navigate the trade-off between market risk and the risk of running out of money in retirement.
The portfolios' broad asset class coverage expands the sources of return potential. This includes exposure to specialty assets with low correlation to the broad stock and bond markets. While diversification does not insure against a loss, it may help reduce downside risk.
The actively managed funds that comprise One Choice Target Date Portfolios have long track records. The funds' veteran managers seek to add value through security selection that's supported by thorough, independent research.
The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions. The fund is subject to the risks of the underlying funds in which it may invest. International investing involves special risks such as political instability and currency fluctuations. Investing in fixed income securities entails interest rate, credit and price risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall and increase when interest rates fall. Historically, small-cap stocks have been more volatile than the stocks of larger, more established companies.
Our diversified target-date funds automatically adjust as their target goal date approaches. Choose which of the 10 target-date funds most closely aligns with when you plan to start using your money. A One Choice Target Date Portfolio's target date is the approximate year when investors plan to retire or start withdrawing their money. The principal value of the investment is not guaranteed at any time, including at the target date.

Each target-date One Choice Target Date Portfolio seeks the highest total return consistent with American Century Investments' proprietary asset mix. Over time, the asset mix and weightings are adjusted to be more conservative. In general, as the target year approaches, the portfolio's allocation becomes more conservative by decreasing the allocation to stocks and increasing the allocation to bonds and money market instruments.

The performance of the portfolios is dependent on the performance of their underlying American Century Investments' funds and will assume the risks associated with these funds.
