American Century Advanced Medical Impact Equity Fund
a sub-fund of Nomura Funds Ireland

Investment Approach

The American Century Advanced Medical Impact Equity Fund focuses on doing well while doing good. The team seeks to invest in innovative health care companies positioned for sustainably high growth. As the portfolio companies attain their fundamental growth objectives, they should also create a positive impact on society.

Philosophy

We believe an investment strategy can offer both dedication to performance and an opportunity to create positive impact in the world. The health care investment universe has an unprecedented level of innovation, which may lead to opportunities for significant value creation. In addition, as these companies attain their fundamental objectives, they also have potential to create a meaningful impact on society.

Good health care equity investments first start with good businesses. A good business is one with a competitive advantage that is demonstrated by the presence or the potential of above-average profitability, combined with opportunities of scaling the business that result in a sustained, high fundamental growth rate. These good health care businesses become potential investment opportunities when they demonstrate improving fundamentals, price momentum and attractive valuations.

Fund Highlights

  • A focus on achieving a positive social impact alongside a financial return.
  • Innovative health care investments aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 (UN SDG-3): Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages.
  • Investment team composed of former industry practitioners and other significant skillsets.
Potential significant risks

International investing involves special risk considerations, including economic and political conditions, inflation rates and currency fluctuations. Investing in emerging markets may accentuate these risks. Historically, small-cap stocks have been more volatile than the stocks of larger, more established companies.
