Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 3, 2006
In the latest issue of YOUNG MONEY® magazine, set to hit college campuses nationwide this week, Lance Armstrong talks about his retirement from professional cycling, his battle back from cancer, and why his strategic collaboration with a national investment management firm fits into his life so well.
According to this latest YOUNG MONEY cover story Armstrong’s latest venture with American Century Investments, also a YOUNG MONEY partner is “…a wonderful match given my interest in improving the lives of people through better health and fitness, in conjunction with American Century’s commitment to financial well being,” said Armstrong.
Through a multi-faceted campaign featuring the former cyclist, American Century is encouraging investors to take action and approach their financial decisions with the same focus, drive and determination that helped Armstrong triumph over the challenges in his life, in particular, cancer.
Armstrong’s motivational force is easily seen in over 60 million yellow LIVESTRONG wristbands that adorn the wrists of people all over the world. To support the battle against cancer, American Century, in cooperation with the Lance Armstrong Foundation, has introduced LIVESTRONG™ Portfolios, a series of mutual funds that provide investors with a convenient way to take control of their finances (see http://www.livestrongportfolios.com for details).
