Risk Considerations

  1. The Fund is actively managed and invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of high yield corporate debt securities from issuers in the United States.
  2. Investment in the Fund involves risks, including general investment risk and geographic concentration risk which may result in loss of a part or the entire amount of your investment.
  3. The investment in debt securities is also subject to credit/counterparty risk, interest rate risk, downgrading risk, credit rating risk, risk associated with high yield debt securities which are generally rated below investment grade or unrated, risk associated with investments in debt instruments with loss-absorption features and valuation risk.
  4. The Fund may use derivatives for hedging, efficient portfolio management and investment purposes or to create synthetic short positions in debt securities and credit indices, and is subject to derivatives risk. Exposure to derivatives may also lead to a risk of significant loss to the Fund.
  5. For Class Ax, dividend are paid on a discretionary basis. Dividend may be paid directly out of capital and/or effectively out of the capital of the share class by distributing all gross income prior to the deduction of any fees and expenses attributable to the share class. Payment of dividends directly out of capital and/or effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any such distribution may result in an immediate reduction of net asset value per share. This could also erode capital and constrain future growth.
  6. The value of the Fund can be volatile and could go down substantially.
  7. Investors should not invest in the Fund solely based on this website.

Indicative Benchmark Data Source: ICE BofA Merrill Lynch

Unless otherwise specified, all fund ratings, awards and data are as of 31-Dec-2022 and sourced from T. Rowe Price. 

Sources for Credit Quality Diversification: Bloomberg Barclays uses the middle rating of Moody’s, S&P and Fitch to determine a security’s credit classification. If only two agencies rate a security, the most conservative (lowest) rating is used. If only one rates a security, that single rating is used.

Sources for Average Credit Quality: Moody’s Investors Service; if Moody’s does not rate a security, then Standard & Poor’s (S&P) is used as a secondary source. When available, T. Rowe Price will use Fitch for securities that are not rated by Moody’s or S&P. T. Rowe Price uses the rating of the underlying investment vehicle for credit default swaps.

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. Indicative benchmark returns are shown with gross income reinvested.   

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.

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.
