American Century Investments has cut about 30 employees as part of a corporate realignment.
The move eliminated jobs in the sales, marketing and client infrastructure groups, the company said in an emailed statement Tuesday.
"We did not have cuts in our investment management teams," a spokeswoman said in a separate email.
American Century is "realigning resources as it focuses on delivering superior, long-term investment performance as well as robust client engagement to meet evolving preferences of clients," the firm's statement said.
Following the restructuring, American Century will continue to employ more than 1,400 people globally, marking a "three-year high point," the firm added in the statement.
The layoffs at American Century follow similar measures at other asset management firms. On April 28. Lazard said it would eliminate 10% of its global workforce. On June 22, BlackRock said it had conducted another round of layoffs that would impact less than 1% of its staff.
American Century had about $201.8 billion in assets under management as of Dec. 31.
