Ideas are key to our success. Our analysts go beyond the numbers to look for real insights of change in every corner of the market.
At T. Rowe Price analysts are rewarded on the value their ideas create. We are insight-led and idea-driven.
Our portfolio managers are not held to a central ‘house view’ on the macro positioning of their strategies. They are empowered to identify the themes that are most relevant to their portfolios and to decide how best to express those views to meet investment objectives.
Integration & collaboration
Many investment firms claim to be collaborative but for us, collaboration is the lifeblood of our research culture. We test all our investment ideas across different investment specialist teams. We believe it’s the best way to gauge their true risk and reward.
From meticulous company and credit research, to a range of quantitative proprietary risk models monitoring portfolio performance, to our Responsible Investing Indicator (RIIM) model. We continually monitor and manage risk to ensure each portfolio is taking only the intended risks to generate return.
With inflation on the rise, several central banks have started to tighten monetary policy. Quantitative easing programs are being wound down and progressive rate rises are commencing. This is a real test for bond markets and investors, after a period of aggressive central bank actions served to drive bond yields to historic lows. With the prospect of more volatility and higher interest rates, what should investors do to shield portfolios from interest rate risk and the rising cost of money? Keep track of the critical market trends and approaches to mitigate interest rate risk.
Global bond yields have fallen to levels that would previously have been unthinkable, with large swathes of the investment-grade market yielding less than zero. Real yields from core assets remain extremely low, making life difficult for income seekers—especially if they are not comfortable migrating into riskier or less liquid markets. Managers need to be skilled in identifying pockets of value, without over-reaching for yield.
Find out how investors could manage their thirst for yield without playing into overly risky assets.
Sustained inflation, the beginning of a Federal Reserve rate‑hiking cycle, tightening liquidity conditions, and the unwinding of pandemic‑era economic distortions— among other factors—have heightened sensitivity in the markets. How governments and monetary policy authorities now respond has assumed elevated importance.
Find the latest intel, research, and portfolio ideas to respond to the ever-shifting landscape.
The historic role of fixed income as diversifying asset class to mitigate equity risk has been challenged. A decade characterized by ultra-low rates, negative yield and muted inflation has led many to question traditional portfolio construction theory. As we move into a new era, what alternative asset class weightings and portfolio construct need to be considered to meet client objectives?
ESG investing has had a remarkable rise over the past decade. The impact of climate change is a systemic investment risk, making the importance of understanding an investment’s environmental footprint more critical than ever before. Regulators, communities, and investors have amplified the imperative to consider environmental, social and governance factors in the investment process.
Learn how ESG is augmenting the insights of our fundamental research platform and how bond investors could benefit.

Risks - The following risks are materially relevant to the fund (refer to prospectus for further details):
General Fund Risks
Capital risk - the value of your investment will vary and is not guaranteed. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the currency in which you subscribed, if different. Counterparty risk - an entity with which the portfolio transacts may not meet its obligations to the fund. ESG and Sustainability risk - may result in a material negative impact on the value of investment and performance of the fund. Geographic concentration risk - to the extent that a fund invests a large portion of its assets in a particular geographic area, its performance will be more strongly affected by events within that area. Hedging risk - a fund's attempts to reduce or eliminate certain risks through hedging may not work as intended. Investment fund risk - investing in funds involves certain risks an investor would not face if investing in markets directly. Management risk - the investment manager or its designees may at times find their obligations to a fund to be in conflict with their obligations to other investment funds they manage (although in such cases, all funds will be dealt with equitably). Operational risk - operational failures could lead to disruptions of fund operations or financial losses.
