The American Century Investments® Advantage

Distinct Growth Philosophy – our emerging markets team focuses on identifying companies exhibiting earnings acceleration and sustainability.

Bottom-Up, Fundamental Research – we look for companies that fit our process regardless of their home country. Macroeconomic impact is incorporated into our company analysis.

All-Cap, Pure-Play Approach – we search for the best ideas regardless of market cap, in an effort to broaden the opportunity potential for outperformance while staying true to our mandate of investing in emerging market companies.

We believe that when a company's earnings per share are growing at an increasing rate it represents one of the most important tools in determining a stock's potential to increase in value

A Repeatable Process Focused on Exploiting Market Inefficiencies

It is the market's inefficiency and its slowness to recognize positive inflections points that we believe allows us to find attractive entry and exit points when buying and selling securities.
