Effective December 24, 2015, Third Avenue Management LLC will no longer serve as an underlying subadvisor for the fund.

The following replaces the third paragraph in The Funds' History section on page 2 of the statement of additional information.
American Century Investment Management, Inc. (ACIM or the advisor) serves as the investment adviser to the funds. ACIM has engaged Perella Weinberg Partners Capital Management LP (PWP) as a subadvisor for the funds. PWP determines the percentage of the funds’ portfolio allocated to each underlying subadvisor in order to seek to achieve the funds’ investment objective.

The subadvisory agreement with each underlying subadvisor provides that the subadvisor will make investment decisions for the
fund(s) it manages in accordance with such fund’s objectives, registration statement, policies, restrictions and whatever additional written guidelines it may receive from the advisor from time to time. Under the current subadvisory agreements, the advisor (not the funds) pays each underlying subadvisor a fee based on the average daily net assets of the portion of the funds that each manages. Because the funds have not yet begun operations, no subadvisory fees have been paid as of the date of this statement of additional information. In the future, the funds will disclose the aggregate investment advisory fees paid by the advisor to the funds’ underlying subadvisors for the most recently completed fiscal year.

Each subadvisory agreement also provides that it will terminate automatically if assigned (as defined in the Act). Each subadvisory agreement continues in effect so long as its continuance is specifically approved by a vote of a majority of the funds’ outstanding voting securities or by a vote of a majority of the funds’ directors, including a majority of those directors who are neither parties to the agreement nor interested persons of any such party, cast in person at a meeting called for the purpose of voting on such approval. Each subadvisory agreement is subject to termination without penalty on 60 days’ written notice by the underlying subadvisor, the Board of Directors, or a majority of the funds’ outstanding votes and will terminate automatically in the event of (i) its assignment or (ii) termination of the investment advisory agreement between the funds and the advisor.
