Capacity Constrained Strategies

We are committed to meeting the needs of current shareholders by investing in a manner that is consistent with the funds' objectives. By closing or restricting access to the funds to new investors, we believe we will preserve our ability to achieve the funds' objectives.

To ensure that our intermediary partners understand how these policies affect their underlying customers and overall business, it is important to understand the differences between official fund closings and the fund restrictions imposed by T. Rowe Price as the result of fund capacity concernsĀ¹.

Closed Funds

  • A prospectus supplement generally is filed with the SEC announcing a fund's official closing to new investors
  • No new accounts or initial purchases from intermediary or direct customers will be accepted after the fund's closing dateĀ¹
  • Existing shareholders of the fund may continue to make subsequent purchases
  • Existing retirement plans may continue to permit access to new participants but no new plans may use the closed fund as an option in their investment lineup
  • Existing contract holders and separate accounts invested in the closed Variable Insurance Portfolios (VIPs) may continue to purchase shares of the closed VIP. Shares generally may not be purchased by a contract holder, separate account or insurance company not invested in the VIP prior to the fund's closing date

1 - Exceptions

Certain limited exceptions may apply to these scenarios.  The funds reserve the right, when in the judgment of T. Rowe Price, it is not adverse to a fund's interest, to permit certain types of investors to open new accounts in a fund, to impose further restrictions, or to close a fund to any additional investments, all without notice.
