American Century Investments has launched the Global Sustainable Value Equity strategy.
The Global Sustainable Value strategy will apply a best-in-progress approach to 45-75 securities and will be managed by Global Value Equity Chief Investment Officer Kevin Toney, Senior Portfolio Manager Michael Liss and Portfolio Manager David Byrns.
David Byrns says, “The team will leverage our proprietary Improvement Pathway (IP) framework to identify companies that recognize the importance and value of transitioning their business operations to support a more sustainable economy. This is an opportunity for our clients to invest in a best-in-progress sustainable strategy that will strive for outperformance while delivering downside risk management and lower volatility.”
Head of Sustainable Investing Sarah Bratton Hughes says, “Instead of focusing on companies that are already known as sustainability leaders, we are seeking diamonds in the rough – companies that are committed to improving the sustainability of their business.”
