The fund seeks income. Long-term capital appreciation is a secondary objective.
The Multi-Asset Income Fund team casts a wide net in its search for yield. Investments span traditional U.S. and non-U.S. stocks and bonds as well as non-traditional income-producing investments. The team also utilizes innovative income strategies designed to take advantage of the shifting landscape for attractive yielding securities.
A sustainable income stream over the long term requires looking beyond the singular dimension of yield. That's why the team also considers total return as part of their process. The team aims for capital growth to protect against inflation, while managing the dominant risks inherent to multi-asset income-focused portfolios: equity, interest rate, and credit risks.
The fund combines the firm’s nearly 30 years of top-down asset allocation experience with the bottom-up security selection skill of our asset class specialists. The fund is not required to allocate its assets in any fixed proportion, but uses broad allocation ranges to give the team the flexibility to adjust the asset mix and pursue attractive income-generation opportunities across the globe.
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 fund may invest in small- and mid-cap stock, which can be more volatile than larger-company stock. The fund also employs a mix of investment styles, each of which has risks associated with it. The fund’s 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. The fund is subject to the risk of a decline in the value of a foreign currency versus the U.S. dollar, which reduces the dollar value of securities denominated in that currency. In addition, the fund’s real estate-related investments may subject the fund to risks similar to those associated with direct investment in real estate. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives will be met.
