I'm torn on this one. Seems notable enough to me, since the company has been on the list of best companies to work for three different times ... but the current article reads like advertizing... Brian 15:24, 6 July 2006 (UTC)btball

Removed the advertizing and POV[edit]

It's still a pretty minimal article though, so I added a stub tag and request for expansion Brian 15:55, 6 July 2006 (UTC)btball

For investing, the company relies heavily on computer generated stock screening with special algorithms based on Mr. Stowers' own financial theories. From the personal wealth Mr. Stowers produced from American Century Investments, he started the Stowers Insitute, a 2 billion dollar biomedical research facility.

Please re-write this article[edit]

The whole article is an advertisement. Provide facts about your company, don't talk up your services. When you make claims on accomplishments you must site sources. The purpose of Wikipedia is to provide facts and history, like an encyclopedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2hamburgers (talkcontribs) 06:18, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Not Advert[edit]

This is standard language (at least the first paragraph) but the 2nd paragraph is about Stowers and his wife. Notable indeed, but for his entry not American Century Investments.--WondoMathias (talk) 20:45, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
