About the Leaders Universe

As a leading ‘search platform’ for institutional asset owners and from our close partnership with Pensions & Investments, Global Fund Search has unique access and insight into the work and preferences of institutional selection teams around the globe. The knowledge we accumulate ultimately makes us able to systematically identify the leading asset managers, e.g. within sustainable investing.

Sustainable investing is one of the major themes that we see among our investor-clients today, and it is a theme that is likely to play an important role in institutional investing for many years to come. Therefore, we dedicate this section of our platform to the leading asset managers and products that we, and our investor-network, see in this space.

ESG philosophy

ESG Overview

American Century Investments focuses on delivering superior, long-term risk-adjusted performance to clients worldwide. The decision to invest with us also enables our clients to make a meaningful impact by funding research that could lead to lifesaving cures for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cancer. American Century pays dividends to our owner, the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, a world-class biomedical research organization. Since 2000, American Century’s dividend payments funding the institute’s work have totaled more than $1.5 billion.

With responsible investing firmly rooted in our culture, American Century Investments’ views on ESG factors are integral to our corporate citizenship and business model. We focus on material ESG issues which can affect the performance of individual securities to varying degrees over time. We seek to integrate the analysis of potential risks and opportunities associated with ESG issues within our fundamental research process, and we strive to mitigate related downside risks or capture upside potential as necessary, without compromising our fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of our clients.

As a matter of principle, risk management is at the core of our investment process. We continually take into account the materiality of all potential risks to our investments, including those stemming from ESG-related issues, with the objective of achieving superior, long-term, risk-adjusted returns for our clients.

ESG Commentary from Keith Creveling, CFA
Co-Chief Investment Officer – Global Growth Equity, Senior Vice President, Senior Portfolio Manager

At American Century Investments we believe that integrating ESG factors in our bottom-up fundamental work leads to better decisions when managing client portfolios.  Our long-established and proven investment philosophy is to invest in companies that are exhibiting accelerating and sustainable growth in their business fundamentals.  We believe that over time, these companies outperform the broader market.

In assessing the sustainability of that growth, our fundamental analytical work incorporates all material and relevant risk that may negatively impact our investment thesis.  More than ever, that includes environmental, social and governance risks.  In addition, by focusing on ESG factors, we may also uncover investable opportunities.  While there are many time-tested approaches to ESG investing, we believe that integration, rather than exclusion, is the path that provides the best combination of generating returns while accounting for relevant ESG issues in our client portfolios.

A strategy or emphasis on environmental, social and governance factors (“ESG”) may limit the investment opportunities available to a portfolio. Therefore, the portfolio may underperform or perform differently than other portfolios that do not have an ESG investment focus. A portfolio’s ESG investment focus may also result in the portfolio investing in securities or industry sectors that perform differently or maintain a different risk profile than the market generally or compared to underlying holdings that are not screened for ESG standards.
