Adaptive All Cap Fund Modified to Adaptive Small Cap Fund

May 7, 2018 - Kansas City, Mo.

American Century Investments announced it is modifying its Adaptive All Cap strategy to become small cap-focused. Effective today, Adaptive All Cap Fund (ACMNX) will be renamed Adaptive Small Cap Fund and repositioned as a small cap offering.

The fund will employ the same quantitative investment process, but its benchmark moving forward will be the Russell 2000® Index, rather than the Russell 3000® Index.

The modifications are being implemented in order to benefit clients, according to American Century Investments Vice President, Global Product Management Drew Billingsley.

"Our research suggests that the quantitative models employed by the strategy are more robust when applied to the small cap market," Billingsley said. "The opportunity to produce greater returns with small caps potentially helps our clients."

Adaptive Small Cap will be governed by the same underlying investment process and philosophy used by the Adaptive Equity and Adaptive All Cap team. The process is quantitative and designed to generate risk-adjusted returns by investing in companies with the highest probability of outperforming based on historical factors and price patterns. Using artificial intelligence, the model combines both traditional fundamental factors with market-state factors in an effort to identify those stocks that, based on past and current conditions, should outperform over the near-term.

The fund, whose inception date was May 31, 2006, is co-managed by Vice President and Portfolio Manager Joe Reiland and Portfolio Manager Stephen Pool.
