At T. Rowe Price, we have one business – investments, and one purpose – to help our clients confidently achieve long-term financial success.
Founded in 1937, T. Rowe Price is built on the enduring philosophy of our founder – meeting the individual needs of discerning clients. For over 80 years and through changing investment and economic environments, the core principles, unique investment insights and active management that guide our business have remained the same – helping our clients to invest confidently and at the same time grow our reputation.
The Bighorn Sheep
Since the 1970s the Bighorn Sheep has been the symbol of T. Rowe Price. Why? Because it reflects the core aspects of our culture, values and investment philosophy. As an agile and surefooted climber its ability to navigate rough terrain echoes the way we follow a disciplined path through all market conditions – with the sharp vision and focus needed to provide more reliable investment returns.
At a Glance*
Founded in 1937 by Thomas Rowe Price Jr., the firm focused on building a reputation for the highest character and the soundest investment philosophy. This philosophy has continued as we have grown from the 1930’s to today.
In 1979 the firm partnered with Robert Fleming Holdings to open our first international office in London and began to expand globally. Since then, T. Rowe Price has expanded to Asia and Europe, and is now one of the largest investment firms in the world, managing USD 1.01tn* for clients in 49 countries.

Cornerstones of our Investment Approach
Since 1937, our investment approach has remained the same*.
From the beginning, having diverse perspectives has been a cornerstone of our approach at T. Rowe Price. It ensures we have the best talent available and a culture that leverages different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences to meet our clients' needs. We have always embraced a culture of diversity and collaboration, and we consider this indivisible from the firm’s mission to help clients succeed.
This same philosophy guides our community efforts. By helping to improve the quality of life for those around us, we believe our own lives will be enriched in the process. We are committed to making a positive social impact in our global communities, from financial education for children to local volunteering. In 2017 alone, the T. Rowe Price foundation provided US$10 million to non-profit organisations.
