The investment seeks to provide for retirement outcomes based on quantitatively measured risk. In pursuit of the objective, the fund, which is a fund of funds, allocates and reallocates its assets among a combination of equity, fixed income and money market funds in proportions based on its own comprehensive investment strategy. It will be broadly diversified across global asset classes, and will generally seek to maintain an asset allocation of approximately 40% in underlying funds that invest in equity and 60% in underlying funds that invest in fixed income, although the allocation may shift over time depending on market conditions. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks high total return over time primarily through income, with a secondary emphasis on capital appreciation. The fund is a "fund of funds" that invests in Institutional Class shares of other funds of the Trust and in other investment pools or investment products. It invests in underlying funds according to a relatively stable asset allocation strategy that will not gradually adjust over time and is designed for investors who are already in or entering retirement. Target allocations may be changed and actual allocations may vary up to ten percentage points from the targets.
The investment seeks current income; capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The fund is a "fund of funds," meaning that it seeks to achieve its objective by investing in other American Century mutual funds (the underlying funds) that represent a variety of asset classes and investment styles. The fund's target allocation for the various asset classes and underlying funds is shown as follow: 45% of its assets in stock funds; 45% of its assets in bond funds; and 10% of its assets in money market funds. The target asset mix of One Choice In Retirement Portfolio is expected to remain fixed over time.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
