Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, American Century Investments replaced its legacy accounting platform with SimCorp Dimension to support expansion of the firm’s institutional and international business. “After two years in production, the investment operations team has greatly benefited from the operational efficiency SimCorp offers,” notes Merele May, Senior Vice President, Investment Operations at American Century Investments. “However, the real winners are our portfolio managers who are confident they have a system in the back-office that will support any new client or product they bring to the table.”

American Century Investments has realized numerous benefits from implementing SimCorp Dimension, including:

  • Support of firm’s investment strategy, which has resulted in growth of assets under management from $88 to $118 billion
  • Reduction in time to market for new securities
  • Ability to manage 286 portfolios with a lean team of five accountants and a manager
  • Centralization of position-keeping provides a single authoritative source of data for accurate positions, cash projections, performance calculations and reporting

“Firms like American Century Investments are true innovators in the use of technology to fuel growth and inspire investor confidence,” comments David Kubersky, Managing Director of SimCorp North America. “This asset manager did not wait for something to ‘break’ before deciding to examine the very infrastructure that supports the firm’s solvency. By creating a central repository of critical financial data, American Century Investments is in the enviable position to respond expediently to any change in the market.”
