SFDR DISCLOSURE
30-Apr-2024 - Taymour Tamaddon, Portfolio Manager,
Despite some higher-than-hoped-for inflation readings, the US Federal Reserve’s reassurance around expected interest rate cuts later this year has driven markets higher through the first several months of 2024. Enthusiasm around artificial intelligence and strong earnings from select mega-cap technology companies has served as the backbone for this optimism.

Overview
Strategy
Fund Summary
We look to identify stocks with the potential to deliver sustainable, double-digit earnings growth, capitalising on both secular and cyclical growth. We are patient investors, aiming to invest in companies trading at attractive valuations relative to their long-term potential and taking advantage of cyclical opportunities to build positions in high conviction names. 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.

30-Apr-2024 - Taymour Tamaddon, Portfolio Manager,
US equities were broadly lower in April on signs that progress in reducing inflation had stalled, raising concerns that interest rates would remain higher for longer. As measured by various Russell indices, large-caps fared best, followed by mid-caps and small-caps. Growth and value were essentially level in large-caps, while value outperformed growth in mid-caps and small-caps. Within the portfolio, stock selection in the consumer discretionary sector added the most value, led by our holding in an e-commerce company whose shares rose after it announced it would be increasing the monthly fee for its membership programme. An underweight position in the industrials and business services sector, which underperformed the broader market, also contributed. Similarly, health care boosted relative performance due to favourable stock choices. Here, our overweight position in a large managed care provider assisted as its shares advanced late in the month following better-than-feared quarterly results from one of its peers, which eased some investor concerns regarding industry cost trends. Alternatively, security selection in the information technology sector detracted, largely due to our underweight exposure to a large consumer technology company that outperformed the broader benchmark as its shares benefitted from some favourable sell-side commentary early in the month.
30-Sep-2022 - Taymour Tamaddon, Portfolio Manager,

In the third quarter, we decreased our exposure to certain names that face near-term headwinds or where our investment thesis had weakened. Our purchasing activity was focused on taking advantage of market weakness to add to high-conviction ideas throughout the portfolio. We also found compelling investment opportunities that we believe stand to benefit from unique growth drivers.

Communication Services

Within the sector, we continue to find attractive opportunities in companies with innovative business models that we believe can take advantage of transformational change. We favor companies with durable business models that address large and growing markets, including internet search and advertising, social connectivity, and entertainment.

  • We sold shares of Alphabet to manage our position size in light of weakening industrywide advertising demand signals. A slate of disappointing earnings reports released by peers during the quarter prompted investor concerns of a broad-based digital advertising recession. However, we remain encouraged by the deep moat that Alphabet has built around its core search franchise. Over the long term, we continue to believe that Alphabet, with dominant positions across everyday use internet utilities, combined with a world-class computing infrastructure and talent, is well positioned to extract value from the economy as the world becomes more digital.
  • We sold shares of Meta Platforms on heightened near-term risk/reward. An industrywide slowdown in ad demand has taken a toll on the social media giant's topline growth. Meta's advanced, hyper-optimized advertising solutions mean that the company faces a deeper reset than others as it designs workarounds to restore the signal loss resulting from Apple's iOS privacy changes. Meta is one of two leading platforms that we expect to benefit from a multi-decade transition from offline to online advertising, and it offers investors a rare combination of scale, growth, and profitability at an attractive valuation with multiple catalysts that include a collection of under-monetized surfaces and social commerce initiatives.

Health Care

Our allocation to the sector emphasizes select managed care companies positioned to benefit from industry consolidation as well as the increasing focus on providing cost-effective solutions. Innovative medical device and equipment manufacturers that are focused on meaningfully improving patient outcomes also represent some of the more attractive opportunities in the sector, in our view. Within the sector, we also have exposure to specific pharmaceutical names with strong balance sheets and diversified product portfolios.

  • We initiated a position in Eli Lilly. We are optimistic following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's approval in May of the new diabetes drug tirzepatide, which will be branded as Mounjaro. Robust sales volumes of cancer and COVID-19 antibody drugs are also encouraging. We believe that the company has several late-stage assets with high probabilities of success that should serve as catalysts over the next 12 to 18 months. We also expect Eli Lilly's base business to remain stable against competition and drug pricing pressures, and we are encouraged by management's goal of increasing the company's operating margin percentage over the next five years.

Consumer Staples

Our positions in the sector generally focus on companies in unique situations with the potential to develop sustainable competitive advantages?in particular, those that we think are on the right side of long-term structural changes in their respective industries.

  • We established a position in energy drink company Monster Beverage on weakness. The stock price slumped in response to Monster's second-quarter earnings release in early August, as the company reported its gross margin far below consensus expectations due to cost inflation. We like Monster for its durable topline growth and strong position in the fast-growing, high-margin energy drink category and think its setup improves from here as price increases take hold and input costs come down.
31-Jan-2024 - Taymour Tamaddon, Portfolio Manager,
We remain largely satisfied with the positioning of the portfolio. We are aiming for a balanced approach of ideas that can provide upside as well as defensive positions that can provide downside support if markets reverse course into a downturn. We continue to refrain from taking a pronounced stance on macroeconomic implications. Similarly, predicting election outcomes and subsequent market impacts is not an area of focus at this stage; however, as political agendas come into focus and the balance of political power crystalises, actionable idiosyncratic investment opportunities may present themselves.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

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.

Rowe Price Funds SICAV, a Luxembourg investment company with variable capital which is registered with Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier and which qualifies as an undertaking for collective investment in transferable securities (“UCITS”).

Hedged share classes (denoted by 'h') utilise investment techniques to mitigate currency risk between the underlying investment currency(ies) of the fund and the currency of the hedged share class.  The costs of doing so will be borne by the share class and there is no guarantee that such hedging will be effective.

Attribution Data: Analysis represents the total performance of the portfolio as calculated by the FactSet attribution model and is inclusive of other assets that that will not receive a classification assignment in the detailed structure shown. Returns will not match official T. Rowe Price performance because FactSet uses different exchange rate sources and does not capture intra-day trading.
