Diversified, Risk-Managed Investing. The Strategic Allocation Funds are asset allocation portfolios designed to help investors pursue their financial goals while taking on risk that's aligned with their investment style.
The Strategic Allocation Funds are designated Conservative, Moderate and Aggressive so investors can choose a portfolio that is aligned with their risk tolerance. Each seeks the highest return possible given its asset mix and is diversified across more than a thousand individual securities that are selected by senior managers of American Century Investments® stock and bond funds.
The management team determines a strategic asset allocation for each portfolio given its risk guidelines. The asset mixes have been tested for performance under a wide range of hypothetical economic and market conditions. Working within the strategic frameworks, the management team may make modest tactical maneuvers to take advantage of opportunities, manage risk and adjust to changing market conditions.
American Century Investments has been managing asset allocation portfolios since 1988 and the senior professionals who manage the Strategic Allocation Funds average more than 20 years of industry experience.
A Note About Risk
The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions. The fund’s investments in fixed income securities are subject to the risks associated with debt securities including credit, price and interest rate risk. Generally, as interest rates rise, the value of the securities held in the fund will decline. The opposite is true when interest rates decline. International 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.
