Who We Are

"If we make our clients successful,
then we, in turn, will be successful."

Jim Stowers, Founder

More than a half century ago, an innovator named Jim Stowers, Jr. founded a small asset management firm in his one-bedroom Kansas City apartment. His vision was to create a company dedicated to integrity, performance and service all focused on one objective: helping investors reach their financial goals.

Relying on $100,000 in seed money from 24 investors, and initially offering just two mutual funds, the company has grown to become one of the country's top money managers serving financial intermediaries, institutional clients, and individual investors.

Managing Money, Making An Impact

American Century Investments® is a leading asset manager focused on delivering investment results and building long-term client relationships while supporting research that can improve health and save lives. It's how we and our clients together Prosper With Purpose®.

Every day people are increasingly focused on investing to make the world a better place for themselves, their families, their organizations and the world at large. It is possible to live a more meaningful and impactful life and give back something that's more valuable than money.

When you invest with us, you can also invest in the future of others and have the potential to impact the lives of millions. That's possible because of the distinct relationship with the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, which owns more than 40% of American Century Investments. Our dividend payments provide ongoing financial support for the Institute’s work of uncovering the causes, treatments and prevention of life-threatening diseases, like cancer.

Together we can become a powerful force for good.
