History, stability, cognitive diversity

In brief: three things that differentiate the Emerging Markets Corporate Bond Strategy


    T. Rowe Price has three competitive advantages in emerging markets. Our history, organizational stability and most importantly, our cognitive diversity.

    • With respect to our history, we have been investing in emerging markets for almost 40 years, dating back to the 1980s.
    • With respect to organizational stability, we have been able to develop and retain talent within the organization. We house the lessons that we've learned from those four decades of experience.
    • Lastly, with respect to cognitive diversity, we have associates with 23 different nationalities; my team has more women than men, which is rare in the industry, but what's more important is not the objective diversity, but the cognitive diversity which those associates brings together. This is not an industry that's just about finance, we are solving for complex challenges of society, business, politics and culture, and it takes a very cognitively diverse team to accomplish that consistently.
