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

The American Century Global Growth Equity strategy is designed to generate alpha using a time-tested growth philosophy and process that helps us to identify companies early in their growth cycle. Our goal is to construct a portfolio of global stocks that are experiencing accelerating growth that we believe to be sustainable over time.

Investment Approach

The strategy 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.

  • 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.
