Indicative Benchmark Data Source: MSCI. MSCI and its affiliates and third party sources and providers (collectively, “MSCI”) makes no express or implied warranties or representations and shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to any MSCI data contained herein. The MSCI data may not be further redistributed or used as a basis for other indices or any securities or financial products. This report is not approved, reviewed, or produced by MSCI. Historical MSCI data and analysis should not be taken as an indication or guarantee of any future performance analysis, forecast or prediction. None of the MSCI data is intended to constitute investment advice or a recommendation to make (or refrain from making) any kind of investment decision and may not be relied on as such.

Unless otherwise specified, all fund ratings, awards and data are as of 31-Aug-2019 and sourced from T. Rowe Price. 

Performance returns for share classes less than 1 year old (and associated benchmarks) are cumulative rather than annualised.  

The calendar year performance of a share class in its year of inception is calculated from its inception date to the last day of that year, which is not a full year return.

SICAV refers to the T. 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”).

Source for performance: T. Rowe Price. Fund performance is calculated using the official NAV with dividends reinvested in the share class currency, 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. Unless otherwise stated, effective July 1, 2018, the “net” version of the indicative benchmark replaced the “gross” version of the indicative benchmark. The “net” version of the indicative benchmark assumes the reinvestment of dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes applicable to the country where the dividend is paid; as such, the returns of the new benchmark are more representative of the returns experienced by investors in foreign issuers. Historical benchmark performance has been restated accordingly.   

Please refer to the factsheet for the Minimum Performance Information and other details.

Investment involves risks. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The investment returns for some funds are denominated in foreign currency other than US/HK dollar. US/HK dollar-based investors are therefore exposed to fluctuations in the US/HK dollar against other foreign currency's exchange rate. Investors should refer to the prospectus for full details of the objectives, investment policies and risks.

All Risk & Reward Data shown is specific to the particular share class shown, and is not necessarily representative of the fund as a whole. The data is calculated based upon the return and standard deviation of the selected share class over 3 years (if the share class has a track record of between 3 and 5 years) or 5 years, once the share class has sufficient performance history. Risk & Reward Data is not available for share classes with under 3 years’ performance history. 

The specific securities identified and described in this website do not represent all of the securities purchased, sold, or recommended for the sub-fund and no assumptions should be made that the securities identified and discussed were or will be profitable.

Where Top 10 Contributor and Detractor figures are shown (within the Holdings sections), these represent the Top 10 contributing/detracting securities by percentage of positive or negative contribution to performance as of 31-Aug-2019.

Where individual top contributor/detractor figures are shown, these are the largest contributors/detractors by percentage of fund size, out of the Top 10 contributors/detractors to fund performance as of 31-Aug-2019.

Calculation methodology of the contributors/detractors is available upon request. The specific securities identified and described do not represent all of the securities purchased, sold, or recommended for clients in the fund. A complete list of contributors/detractors for the period covered is available upon request.
