American Century Investments has created an adviser-sold version of its 529 college savings plan. The Learning Quest Education Savings Program, which the firm launched with the State of Kansas in July of 2000, will be supplemented by Learning Quest Advisor.

"The tax, estate and legal issues can be complex, so it makes sense for certain Learning Quest investors to want to work with financial advisers," Tim Shallenburger, Kansas State Treasurer, said in a statement. "Learning Quest Advisor also provides pricing flexibility to best meet the needs for clients who work with advisers."
