“We now have five ETF funds available for clients and investors,” Rosenberg said. “All of our ETFs feature institutional-quality management that draws on the firm’s fundamental and quantitative expertise.”
Today’s launch of three more ETF funds caps a busy year for American Century Investments. Since announcing its ETF initiative in the spring of 2017, the firm has made steady progress hiring key personnel, establishing relationships with ETF liquidity providers and laying the groundwork for a sustained presence in the ETF marketplace.
Rosenberg joined the firm from Northern Trust’s FlexShares in June 2017, followed by the November hiring of Matt Lewis as vice president and head of ETF implementation & capital markets. American Century Investments also announced that it entered into an agreement with Precidian Investments, LLC to license the firm’s ActiveShares℠ methodology in support of the potential launch of actively managed, non-transparent ETFs2, subject to regulatory approval.
In early 2018, the firm hired Rene Casis for the value ETF portfolio manager position and Sean Walker as an ETF specialist. Then the firm announced the launch of its first two ETFs in mid-January. Lastly, the firm named Margaret Dorn as ETF external specialist and Matthew Abatecola and Ross Kamovitch as ETF internal specialists in March.
American Century Investments is a leading global asset manager focused on delivering investment results and building long-term client relationships while supporting research that can improve human health and save lives.
