Strategy

Investment Objective

To generate income while offering some protection against rising interest rates and a low correlation with equity markets.

Investment Approach

  • The investment manager's approach is based on proprietary fundamental research and relative value analysis.
  • The investment manager seeks to add value primarily through duration management, currency selection, sector allocation and security selection.
  • The investment process places a strong emphasis on downside protection, utilizing robust risk management practices and portfolio diversification to manage the overall risk profile.

Portfolio Construction

  • The fund invests mainly in a portfolio of bonds of all types from issuers around the world, including emerging markets.
  • Specifically, the fund invests at least two-thirds of total assets in debt securities issued by governments, government agencies, companies and banks. Portfolio debt securities can include fixed and floating rate bonds, convertible bonds, warrants and other transferable debt securities of any type, with a rating of investment grade by major rating agencies or if unrated of equivalent quality. The fund may invest more than 20% of assets in asset-backed securities (ABS) and mortgage backed securities (MBS).
  • The fund does not invest more than 10% of assets in equities and equity-related securities, 25% of assets in convertible bonds, and one third of assets in money market securities, with total investment in these categories limited to one-third of assets. However, for temporary defensive purposes, investments in money market securities may exceed one-third of assets.
  • The fund may use derivatives for hedging, efficient portfolio management and to seek gains. The fund may also use derivatives to create synthetic short positions in currencies, debt securities, credit indices and equities.

Performance figures calculated in USD

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.  Source for fund performance: T. Rowe Price. Fund performance is calculated using the official NAV with dividends reinvested, if any. The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may get back less than the amount invested. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the subscription currency, if different. Sales charges (up to a maximum of 5% for the A Class), taxes and other locally applied costs have not been deducted and if applicable, they will reduce the performance figures. 

Where the base currency of the fund differs from the share class currency, exchange rate movements may affect returns.
