We carefully manage risk–seeking to both minimize losses and maximize returns for our clients.
We don’t stop at surface-level analysis. Our 475-plus investment professionals1 go out into the field to get the answers needed to select the right investment opportunities.
Our 18 U.S. equity funds beat their benchmarks most of the time in both up and down markets (12/31/2000–12/31/2020).
Helping to limit investors’ losses is just as important as—if not more important than—delivering growth. In addition to identifying promising investment opportunities, our strategic investing approach has helped us prudently manage risk for our clients’ investments.
Over a 20-year period from 2000 to 2020, our U.S. equity funds analyzed beat their benchmarks over 68% of the time in trailing five-year monthly rolling preiods when their designated benchmarks were positive.1 Perhaps more importantly, our funds helped investors limit losses better than the benchmark during that same period, outperforming over 90% of the time when benchmarks were down.

Index, sector, specialized, and institutional clones of our retail funds were excluded Funds with less than a 15-year track record were also excluded due to limited performance data availability. Of T. Rowe Price’s 26 diversified U.S. equity funds, 18 met the criteria for the analysis and are represented within. One of the 18 funds, the Capital Appreciation Fund, also has the ability to invest in ﬁxed income assets but is primarily an equity portfolio and benchmarked to the S&P 500 Index. The funds included in the analysis represented almost 77% of total U.S. equity assets in the domestic and global equity mutual funds advised by the firm as of 12/31/20.

Past performance cannot guarantee future results. All investments are subject to market risk, including the possible loss of principal.
Bond funds are subject to risk that if interest rates rise significantly from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term.
Investing overseas involves special risks, including political uncertainty; unfavorable currency exchange rates; and to a lesser degree, market illiquidity. As with all mutual funds, these funds are subject to market risk, including possible loss of principal.
