American Century Concentrated Global Growth Equity Fund
– a sub-fund of Nomura Funds Ireland

The American Century Concentrated Global Growth Equity strategy employs the same philosophy, process and team that we have used successfully in our Global Growth strategy since 1999. The concentrated portfolio represents our best ideas in the global market and seeks to provide a higher alpha alternative for global allocations.

Investment Approach

The fund seeks to invest in companies demonstrating accelerating growth with market capitalizations of $3 billion or more located primarily in developed markets including the United States.

  • The portfolio represents our best ideas in the global market and is designed to provide a higher alpha alternative for global allocations, and typically holding 30 to 50 securities.
  • Centers on the belief that accelerating growth in earnings and revenues, rather than the absolute level of growth, is more highly correlated to stock price performance.
  • Directs us to research different companies than other growth managers, as we do not require an absolute threshold of earnings or revenue growth.
  • Allows us to take advantage of both the normal price appreciation that results from a company’s earnings growth and the market’s re-rating of a company’s price-to-earnings multiple.

Potential Significant Risks

International investing involves special risk considerations, including economic and political conditions, inflation rates and currency fluctuations. Because this fund may, at times, concentrate its investments in a specific area, during such times it may be subject to greater risks and market fluctuations than when the portfolio represents a broader range of securities. The funds strategies may also result in high portfolio turnover that could result in increased commission costs, affecting the funds performance, as well as capital gains tax liabilities to the shareholder.
