Why We Stand Apart

Independent Thinking and Innovation

At American Beacon, we believe we’re a bit different from the typical advisory/mutual fund firm. Using our decades of experience in manager selection as a fiduciary for institutional investors, we’ve been able to deliver timely investment opportunities and seek consistent results for those who’ve entrusted their assets to us.

It all stems from our key attributes:

  • Multi-Manager Approach. No one manager has a monopoly on good investment ideas. That’s why we allocate the assets of many of our Funds among a carefully selected array of managers. We believe this diversified approach enables our shareholders to benefit from a variety of successful investment styles and strategies, and potentially experience more balanced and consistent returns over the long term.
  • Fiduciary Perspective. American Beacon acts as fiduciary for the pension plans of one of America’s leading corporations. We apply that same investment expertise to the methodology of the American Beacon Funds.
  • Ongoing Due Diligence. American Beacon conducts in-person evaluations of its managers on a quarterly basis. We review the managers’ long-term performance, adherence to investment philosophy and the continuity of their management teams.
  • Consistent Style. As part of our ongoing due diligence, we scrutinize each manager’s portfolio on an individual holdings basis to make sure they adhere to market capitalization and investment style guidelines.
  • Low Cost. Our large asset base, economies of scale and cost-efficient operations enable the American Beacon Funds to provide shareholders exceptional service at a very reasonable cost.

We believe our combined talent, experience and knowledge greatly benefit our shareholders and provide new opportunities to achieve their investment objectives.
