Privately controlled and independent, we focus solely on investment management. This empowers us to align our decisions with client expectations and concentrate on their long-term money management needs.

Our culture of winning behaviors exemplifies our dedication to clients every single day. Delivering investment results enables us to distribute over 40% of our dividends—more than $1.7 billion — to the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, a 500-person, non-profit basic biomedical research organization with a controlling interest in American Century Investments. Our dividend payments provide ongoing financial support for the Institute’s work of uncovering the causes, treatments and prevention of lifethreatening diseases, like cancer.

Headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., we also have offices located in New York; London; Hong Kong; Frankfurt; Sydney; Los Angeles; and Mountain View, Calif. (Silicon Valley).
