My grandfather died of cancer and my best friend’s mother suffered from Parkinson’s. At this time, there’s no cure for these diseases, but don’t we all hope for one?
Would you believe me if I told you a national investment firm is owned by a medical research institute and is making great strides in medical breakthroughs? Believe it. American Century Investments is owned by Stowers Institute for Medical Research. Out of the profits that the company earns annually, over 40% goes towards the Stowers Institute for Medical research projects.
The Stowers Institute depends on profits from the American Century Investments to fund studies on new ways of understanding biological mechanisms and how to approach different diseases and their effects.Without you, the Stowers Institute would just be a dream, but luckily the institute has existed for more than 20 years.
The institute’s founders, Mr. Jim and Virginia Stowers, had a mission to change people’s lives; both investors and others who are not directly part of the company. Stowers has been impactful on thousands of people living with terminal diseases in the U.S. and beyond since then. American Century Investments is a real blessing to lifesaving market research programs.
When you invest with American Century Investments – who makes an impact in other people’s wellbeing – you too become part of the change the world wants.
Finally, take a moment and imagine what people with long-term illnesses such as cancer and dementia really go through. And then think of the massive contribution that science and research have had in helping reduce the impact of such diseases.
It has been great, right? The impact has also been tremendous, mostly because of people like you who choose to invest in a company that sees more than money. And that is the mettle that makes companies like American Century Investments great.
