American Beacon Advisors Launches American Beacon Acadian Emerging Markets Managed Volatility Fund

The Fund's sub-advisor, Acadian Asset Management, pioneered their Managed Volatility strategy in 2006 in order to give investors the opportunity to achieve market-like returns with significantly less risk than capitalization-weighted indices. Acadian considers return forecasts as well as long- and short-term risk estimates during construction of the Fund's portfolio, which holds benchmark and non-benchmark securities. Founded in 1986, Acadian now manages nearly $60 billion in assets and employs over 200 professionals worldwide.

American Beacon Advisors Launches American Beacon Earnest Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund

American Beacon Advisors announced the launch of the American Beacon Earnest Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund. The Fund commenced operations on September 19, 2013, offering five classes of shares: ABEEX (Institutional Class), ABEVX (Investor Class), ABEGX (Y Class), ABEAX (A Class) and ABETX (C Class). The fund's primary goal is to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing in equity securities of companies based in emerging markets. Diversified across emerging market currencies, regions and countries, the Fund uses a fundamental, bottom-up investment process. It seeks to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Index while mitigating downside risk and volatility. In selecting securities for the Fund, EARNEST Partners will rely on its longstanding three-step process. First, the investment team screens the universe of securities using the firm's internally developed Return Pattern Recognition(R) system. The Return Pattern Recognition(R) screen seeks to identify securities that the firm believes are poised to outperform by looking at existing industry-specific characteristics and comparing those to characteristics in place during prior periods of outperformance. Next, securities passing the initial screen are subject to EARNEST Partners's rigorous fundamental analysis process whereby it seeks to identify the best companies with a sustainable, long-term edge over competitors. Lastly, the portfolio is constructed to attempt to mitigate the likelihood of significantly underperforming the benchmark by using a risk management process that focuses on downside deviation.
