We remain focused on finding companies that sell linchpin or indispensable technology, innovating in secular growth markets, with improving fundamentals and reasonable valuations. We will continue to invest in artificial intelligence-themes (AI) responsibly through digital semiconductor, semi-cap equipment, and memory companies, among others, and to pick up excess-market returns where we can outside of AI.

Fund Summary
Our fundamental company research and bottom-up analysis aims for early identification of disruptive technology trends and to identify future winners and losers of technological change. We invest in primarily mid- to large-sized companies with strong and/or increasing market share and product pipelines that appear to be strategically poised for long-term growth. 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

30-Jun-2024 - Dom Rizzo, Portfolio Manager,
Global equities were volatile in June but managed to eke out broadly positive results. Within the portfolio, stock selection in semiconductors detracted from relative performance. Our positioning in a large digital semiconductor company with a communications focus hurt. We did not own the stock at the beginning of the period and missed out on gains after the company reported better-than-expected results from its most recent quarter and announced a stock split. We initiated a position during the month as we like the company’s world-class application-specific integrated circuits and networking switch technology as well as its meaningfully improving fundamentals. Within internet, an overweight position dragged as the subsector trailed the benchmark. Alternatively, stock selection in industrials contributed to relative results. Shares of an electric vehicle manufacturer advanced after a prominent technology investor released financial models predicting that by 2029 the majority of the company’s earnings will be driven by its artificial intelligence-related endeavours. We believe structural cost, technology, and cultural advantages should enable the company to continue disrupting the automotive industry while it also diversifies into less cyclical and higher-margin areas such as energy storage and autonomous driving.
31-Dec-2023 - Dom Rizzo, Portfolio Manager,
Digital semiconductors companies are direct beneficiaries of artificial intelligence (AI); one major player in the space recently projected that the AI market could grow from USD 45 billion in 2023 to USD 400 billion by 2027 and could comprise a significant portion of the total semiconductor market size. We find this projection remarkable and believe it highlights significant opportunities for several of our investments. One of our largest holdings in semiconductors is a high-quality company solidifying a leadership position in its industry as the role of graphics processing units continues to gain importance amid several powerful vectors for growth: AI, supercomputing, gaming, and autonomous driving.

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”).

Please note that the Fund typically has a risk of high volatility.

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.

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.

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. Performance for each security is obtained in the local currency and, if necessary, is converted to U.S. dollars using an exchange rate determined by an independent third party. Figures are shown with gross dividends reinvested.
