Emerging Markets Stock Fund

Closed

Invests in the common stock of large and small companies across all of the emerging markets regions: Asia, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

International investments are generally more volatile than domestic investments. Share prices are subject to market risk, as well as risks associated with unfavorable currency exchange rates and political or economic uncertainty abroad. Because of the concentration in rapidly developing economies, the fund involves a high degree of risk.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for funds with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

Current performance may be lower or higher than the quoted past performance, which cannot guarantee future results. Share price, principal value, and return will vary and you may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. Average annual total return figures include changes in principal value, reinvested dividends, and capital gain distributions.

Investors should note that short term returns greater than 40% are highly unusual and unlikely to be sustained.

The gross expense ratio reflects the fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus prior to the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. The net expense ratio reflects fund expenses after the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement.  If a fund has an active contractual expense limitation, the expiration date is shown below the gross and net expense ratio values above.  Expense ratios are as of the most recent prospectus.

*The T. Rowe Price Funds-Advisor Class share the portfolio of an existing fund (the original share class of the fund is referred to as the "investor class"). The total return figures for Advisor Class shares have been calculated using the performance data of the investor class up to the inception date of the Advisor Class (shown above) and the actual performance results of the Advisor Class since that date. The performance results of the investor class have not been adjusted to reflect the 12b-1 fee associated with the Advisor Class (0.25%). Had this fee been included, the performance would have been lower.
