A series of target-date funds that provide a single investment in a broadly diversified portfolio designed to help investors build toward the retirement they envision, while reducing the chances their money will run short.

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.
By the time each fund reaches its target year, its target asset mix will become fixed and will match that of One Choice In Retirement Portfolio.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are bought and sold through exchange trading at market price (not NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Diversification does not assure a profit nor does it protect against loss of principal.
Alternative mutual funds generally hold a variety of non-traditional investments, and generally employ more complex trading strategies than traditional mutual funds. Specifically, the fund may invest in, among other securities, lower-rated debt securities; securities backed by other assets (like mortgages or auto loans); companies engaged in the real estate industry; and entities that must invest in energy infrastructure, financial services or real estate to obtain special tax status. The fund may invest in these strategies directly, through short positions (effectively borrowing and then selling a security with a future delivery date in hopes that it will decline in price in the interim), or through other derivatives, such as futures or options.
Each of these alternative asset classes and investment strategies has unique risks typically making them more suitable for investors with an above average tolerance for risk or longer investment horizon. Specifically, among other risks, lower-rated debt securities may be subject to greater default and liquidity risk; asset-backed securities may be subject to prepayment, credit and default risk; real estate securities may be subject to changes in economic conditions and interest rates; and special tax entities may be subject to a change in tax status and the risks of concentrating in a particular region or industry.
In addition, these investments may be executed through investment strategies with unique risks. One of the risks of investing through short positions includes that the stock price will go up, exposing the short seller to potentially unlimited price risk. One of the risks of investing in derivatives is volatility. Specifically, derivatives investing can be typically executed for less than investing directly in the underlying asset. Small movements in the underlying asset's price, however, can result in significant volatility in the related derivative investment. In addition, most derivative investments involve a counterparty, which subjects the investment to the credit risk of each counterparty to a derivatives transaction.
