American Century Investments of Kansas City, Mo. announced last week that it is introducing seven new funds and is adding C shares to 23 of its funds.

Two of the new funds, the American Century New Opportunities II and American Century International Opportunities funds, are small-cap equity funds with minimum investments of $10,000, the company said. The company decided to bring them out now because it currently does not have open funds in those areas and it believes there is currently a demand for small-cap funds, according to Laura Kouri, a spokesperson for American Century.
