FACTSHEET
KID
SFDR DISCLOSURE
31-Mar-2024 - Kenneth Orchard, Portfolio Manager,
Market expectations for US interest rate cuts appear to be more in line with the Federal Reserve’s messaging. Labour markets have softened but not weakened materially, which has likely postponed the first rate cut to June or later. Credit spreads have tightened significantly to multiyear tight levels, so credit may benefit more from carry going forward.

Overview
Strategy
Fund Summary
We seek to add value primarily through sector allocation, currency selection, duration management, and security selection. Our approach is based on proprietary fundamental research and relative value analysis. There is a strong emphasis on risk management practices and portfolio diversification to manage the overall risk profile. The promotion of environmental and/or social characteristics is achieved through the fund's commitment to maintain at least 10% of the value of its portfolio invested in Sustainable Investments, as defined by the SFDR. Additionally, we apply a proprietary responsible screen (exclusion list). The manager is not constrained by the fund’s benchmark, which is used for performance comparison purposes only.
Performance - Net of Fees

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

31-Mar-2024 - Kenneth Orchard, Portfolio Manager,
Global fixed income markets, as measured by the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index hedged to U.S. dollars, rebounded in March and posted positive absolute and excess returns. Sovereign yields retreated across several countries after rising in February. Global credit spreads tightened for most sectors, which supported excess returns. The portfolio posted positive absolute returns in March. Our exposure to global investment-grade corporate bonds boosted returns for the month. With investors anticipating that global central bank tightening has peaked, positive risk sentiment helped credit spreads narrow and falling sovereign yields supported absolute returns for high-grade corporate debt. Duration positioning detracted, however, with short duration positions in Germany and the EU along with some U.S. duration hedges weighing on performance.
31-Dec-2023 - Kenneth Orchard, Portfolio Manager,
The portfolio eliminated its exposure to agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) in December after a run of strong performance for the sector. We tactically managed our MBS exposure over the past few months, thanks to the insights from our sector strategy team, but we believe agency MBS spreads have tightened to unattractive levels relative to other assets.
31-Dec-2023 - Kenneth Orchard, Portfolio Manager,
In currencies, we maintained an underweight position in the US dollar with the currency likely to lose support as the Federal Reserve is expected to cut policy rates in 2024. During the month, we initiated a long position in the Turkish lira on attractive valuations. We believe the currency could benefit from a gradual return to more orthodox monetary policy as Türkiye aims for relative stability for the currency.

Source for performance: T. Rowe Price. Fund performance is calculated using the official NAV with dividends reinvested, if any. The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may get back less than the amount invested. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the subscription currency, if different. Sales charges (up to a maximum of 5% for the A Class), taxes and other locally applied costs have not been deducted and if applicable, they will reduce the performance figures.

Daily performance data is based on the latest available NAV.
