When T. Rowe Price founded its fixed income division in 1971, the world was a very different place. The term “emerging markets” had not yet been coined, the first junk bond boom was a decade away, and for most investors the only tools in the fixed income toolkit were domestic government bonds. In the five decades that followed, our bond expertise evolved as fast as the markets did.
Over the years, we have navigated multiple market crises and followed new asset classes as they grew from infancy. When we talk about T. Rowe Price’s “deep expertise”, we’re referring to that institutional memory, and the sound judgment born of long experience. Join our investment professionals as they reflect on their own careers, the evolution of their asset classes – and lessons for the future.
