American Century Inflation-Protected Bond is one of the oldest strategies in the inflation-protected bond Morningstar Category, but its enhanced flexibility--which allows the addition of corporate credits and securitized bonds as eligible sectors--has introduced additional risk. The strategy earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for most of its shares and Negative for its two most expensive share classes.
