T. Rowe Price Fixed Income

Free to think, Free to explore

Our fixed income teams are empowered with the freedom to think and the freedom to explore seeking to deliver better outcomes for our clients.


Ideas are key to our success. Our analysts go beyond the numbers to look for real insights of change in every corner of the market.

At T. Rowe Price analysts are rewarded on the value their ideas create. We are insight-led and idea-driven.


Our portfolio managers are not held to a central ‘house view’ on the macro positioning of their strategies. They are empowered to identify the themes that are most relevant to their portfolios and to decide how best to express those views to meet investment objectives.

Integration & collaboration

Many investment firms claim to be collaborative but for us, collaboration is the lifeblood of our research culture. We test all our investment ideas across different investment specialist teams. We believe it’s the best way to gauge their true risk and reward.

Risk management

From meticulous company and credit research, to a range of quantitative proprietary risk models monitoring portfolio performance, to our Responsible Investing Indicator model (RIIM). We continually monitor and manage risk to ensure each portfolio is taking only the intended risks to generate return.
