American Century Short Duration is backed by an experienced team, but its lack of a cohesive investment philosophy and reliance on riskier out-of-benchmark sectors do not make it a compelling option. This warrants a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for most of the fund’s share classes and Negative for its two priciest share classes.
