Fund Summary
Our approach is based on proprietary fundamental credit research and relative value analysis. The investment process places a strong emphasis on risk management practices and portfolio diversification to manage the overall risk profile. We seek to exploit market inefficiencies and identify unique and underfollowed credit ideas. 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

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Performance returns are calculated on a NAV-NAV basis, net of fees, with distributions reinvested. Returns for the current year performance is cumulative. Benchmark returns are shown with reinvestment of dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes. The Excess Returns are shown as Fund % minus the Benchmark %. Performance returns for share classes less than 1 year old (and associated benchmarks) are cumulative rather than annualised.

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: Moody’s Investors Service and Standard & Poor’s (S&P); split ratings (e.g. BB/B and B/CCC) are assigned when the Moody’s and S&P ratings differ. Short-Term holdings are not rated.

Average Credit Quality is calculated by averaging the Moody’s weighted average quality and the S&P weighted average quality (50/50 split), regardless of the % of the portfolio actually rated by each of these ratings agencies.

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. 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 SG dollar. SG dollar-based investors are therefore exposed to fluctuations in the SG dollar against other foreign currency's exchange rate. Investors should refer to the prospectus for full details of the objectives, investment policies and risks.
