M1For 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 (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. 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. Morningstar Rating™ is for Investor share class only; other classes may have difference performance characteristics.

Investment Strategy:
  • Seeks to provide higher total return with moderate downside risk by investing in a mix of American Century Investments mutual funds and other investments
  • Invests in a broad set of stocks, bonds, cash and alternative asset classes, such as commodity-related investments and real estate
  • Diversifies globally across countries, sectors and securities
For Investors Who:
  • Seek a global, diversified investment that emphasizes total return
  • Want exposure to multiple asset classes in one mutual fund
  • Can tolerate short-term priced volatility
Risk Factors:

The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions. International investing involves special risk considerations, including economic and political conditions, inflation rates and currency fluctuations. The fundís investments in fixed income securities are subject to the risks associated with debt securities including credit, price and interest rate risk. The performance of the portfolio is partially dependent on the performance of the underlying American Century Investments funds and will assume the risks associated with these funds. Diversification does not assure a profit nor does it protect against loss of principal.
