We're free to concentrate on exploiting market opportunities, wherever they may be.
Ideas are key to our success. Our analysts go beyond the numbers to look for real insights of change in every corner of the market. At T. Rowe Price, analysts are rewarded on the value their ideas create. We are insight-led and idea-driven.
Our portfolio managers are not held to a central ‘house view’. They are empowered to identify the themes they believe are most relevant to their portfolios and to decide how best to express those views to meet the investment objectives.
Integration & collaboration
Many investment firms claim to be collaborative but at T. Rowe Price, collaboration is the lifeblood of our culture. Our teams are encouraged to share ideas, challenge consensus and bring their own perspectives. We believe this leads to better decisions.
From meticulous company and credit research, to quantitative proprietary risk models, to our Responsible Investing Indicator Model (RIIM). We continually monitor and manage risk to ensure each portfolio is taking only intended risks to generate return.
Inflation and rising rates remain at the forefront of investors’ minds. Fixed income investors have faced a testing combination of multi-decade inflation highs and a hawkish policy shift from major central banks, which has led to a new rising rates cycle.
With the prospect of further volatility and higher interest rates, what can investors do to help shield their portfolios from interest rate risk and the rising cost of money?
The hunt for yield has been one of the major challenges for investors over the past decade. Over that period, ultra-low interest rates have meant the so-called ‘risk-free’ component of most fixed income portfolios has produced results that have barely kept up with inflation, if at all.
However, bond yields are finally starting to look attractive again but are they priced for the scale of the macro headwinds ahead?
The combination of persistently high inflation, slowing growth and geopolitical unrest has created an almost unsolvable riddle for central banks. Will they be forced to choose between trying to avert recession and meeting inflation targets?
Investors need managers with the experience and insights to navigate policy uncertainty and identify pockets of value across the full breadth of fixed income sectors.
Amid the risk of recession, a falloff in consumer spending, elevated energy prices and higher costs of capital, corporate earnings are under threat. After a decade of cheap capital and strong growth, business models will face heightened scrutiny, with the weaker ones likely to get found out.Security selection will be vital for success. Investors need managers with deep understanding of companies and industries and the ability to make the right choices to futureproof their portfolio.

Risks - The following risks are materially relevant to the fund (refer to prospectus for further details):
General Fund Risks
Capital risk - the value of your investment will vary and is not guaranteed. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the currency in which you subscribed, if different. Counterparty risk - an entity with which the portfolio transacts may not meet its obligations to the fund. ESG and Sustainability risk - may result in a material negative impact on the value of investment and performance of the fund. Geographic concentration risk - to the extent that a fund invests a large portion of its assets in a particular geographic area, its performance will be more strongly affected by events within that area. Hedging risk - a fund's attempts to reduce or eliminate certain risks through hedging may not work as intended. Investment fund risk - investing in funds involves certain risks an investor would not face if investing in markets directly. Management risk - the investment manager or its designees may at times find their obligations to a fund to be in conflict with their obligations to other investment funds they manage (although in such cases, all funds will be dealt with equitably). Operational risk - operational failures could lead to disruptions of fund operations or financial losses.
