To deliver results for you and your clients, we do the legwork.

Numbers tell only half the story. Our strategic investing approach demands going further to get the full story.

Strategic investing has guided us since 1937.

We strive to deliver consistently better outcomes for our clients. Here's how we go further:

Deep Experience

Our portfolio managers average 22 years in the industry and 17 years with T. Rowe Price – and they’ve weathered all kinds of markets.1


We strive for greater returns over longer time horizons.

Prudent Risk Management

We carefully manage risk–seeking to both minimize losses and maximize returns for our clients.

Rigorous Research

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.

We delivered better returns in up and down markets.

Our 17 U.S. equity funds beat their benchmarks most of the time in both up and down markets (6/30/2001–6/30/2021).

Strategic Investing Equity Pie Chart

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.

It's about more than just higher returns.

Over a 20-year period from 2001 to 2021, our U.S. equity funds analyzed beat their benchmarks over 70% 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.

Results based on an analysis of T. Rowe Price’s active, diversified U.S. equity mutual funds (oldest share class). 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 25 diversified U.S. equity funds, 17 met the criteria for the analysis and are represented within. One of the 17 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 over 75% of total U.S. equity assets in the domestic and global equity mutual funds advised by the firm as of 6/30/2021. Results for other time periods will differ. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal.

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.
