Global Impact Credit Strategy

Our strategy aims to invest in companies that create positive and measurable impact while also seeking outperformance.

In 2021, T. Rowe Price expanded its impact range and launched its first impact credit strategy. The T. Rowe Price Global Impact Credit Strategy targets durable growing businesses who have a clearly identified impact thesis aligned to three key pillars: climate and resource impact, social equity and quality of life, and sustainable innovation and productivity. 

Public fixed income offers a fertile ground for impact investment opportunities. The market can facilitate the flow of capital from investors to the very projects and institutions that we believe are best placed to drive positive environmental and/or social impact.
