Rich Weiss Receives Top 50 Executive Ally Award
Kansas City, Missouri
American Century Investments® Multi-Asset Strategies Chief Investment Officer Rich Weiss was recognized by LGBT Great as one of its Top 50 Executive Allies. LGBT Great is an LGBTQ+ membership community for the financial services industry and annually recognizes and celebrates leaders for their allyship towards under-represented communities in financial services.
"Rich is a strong figure within our firm," said Victor Zhang, chief investment officer. "His willingness to speak up for those who are under-represented and spearhead efforts to educate and initiate change exemplifies his commitment to creating an inclusive workplace where all employees feel valued."
Weiss, who has been with the firm since 2010, is an executive sponsor of the Pride business resource group (BRG), which represents members of the LGBTQ+ community and their colleagues, family members and friends and fosters an inclusive environment to ensure LGBTQ+ employees feel safe, welcome and valued in the workplace. As an executive sponsor of the Pride BRG, Weiss has encouraged companywide conversations about the importance of allyship and how to become a more active ally of the LGBTQ+ community.
"I am honored to be recognized as a top executive ally by LGBT Great," said Weiss. "Everyone deserves to feel valued in the workplace and strong allies help us create an environment where employees can be their authentic selves. Business resource groups, like Pride, create a space for people to learn and grow as allies through important conversations. I am proud to be an ally for the LGBTQ+ community and grateful to be part of an organization that acknowledges the importance of strong allyship."
Weiss joined American Century Investments in 2010 as the Multi-Asset Strategies chief investment officer. He oversees the team that manages the firm's multi-asset strategies, including One Choice® (Target Risk and Target Date) Portfolios, Strategic Allocation and investments offered in the Learning Quest® 529 Education Savings Program. Weiss is also a member of the American Century Investments Asset Allocation Committee, which is responsible for establishing investment policy and reviewing investment decisions for all the firm's multi-asset products. He is a trusted voice in the media and has been featured on CNBC, Bloomberg Television, Fox Business and Bloomberg Radio.
