Key Themes and Portfolio Positioning Ideas
As 2017 continues to unfold, changing economic, market, and political conditions are introducing more uncertainty into markets than in recent years. Since the 2008 financial crisis, record-low interest rates have pushed investors into riskier, higher-yielding assets. But that environment may now be changing. Market expectations are stretching stock valuations, the Federal Reserve (Fed) is uncertain about raising rates, and global events are contributing to political uncertainty.
The investment professionals at American Century Investments® discuss themes we believe will have the most impact on investors going forward. For each theme, we provide portfolio positioning ideas for investors to consider.

International investing involves special risks, such as political instability and currency fluctuations. Investing in emerging markets may accentuate these risks.
