31-Jan-2020 - Arif Husain, Head of International Fixed Income,
Over the next few weeks, we expect volatility to dominate financial markets. The progression rate of the coronavirus in China and the extent to which it spreads to other countries is likely to be important for investor sentiment. We are monitoring developments closely, standing ready to take action in the portfolio if needed.

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.

31-Aug-2021 - Arif Husain, Head of International Fixed Income,
Developed government bond yields mostly rose during August, while credit spreads were mixed. In the U.S., yields crept higher in the intermediate and longer parts of the Treasury curve amid strong labour market data and the pricing in of future interest rate hikes. Similarly, core eurozone bond yields rose as hawkish rhetoric from some European Central Bank officials raised expectations for tapering. At the portfolio level, our short duration positions in the UK and Poland added gains as they benefitted from a rise in bond yields. A long exposure in domestic Brazil detracted, however, as bonds came under pressure from rising inflation and political concerns. In currency markets, our long position in the euro and a short position in the Taiwanese dollar weighed on performance over the period.

In sector allocation, we expressed an overall modest negative bias in credit markets. At the end of August, we held select long positions in investment-grade and high yield corporate issuers identified as attractive by our bottom-up research process and defensive short positions in credit indices expressed using synthetic credit instruments.

31-Aug-2021 - Arif Husain, Head of International Fixed Income,
The portfolio continued to have a modest bias for higher interest rates in developed market countries as we expect inflation to remain elevated with prices potentially stickier and less transitory than markets anticipate. Elsewhere, we remained broadly constructive toward select emerging market local currency government bonds. As several developing countries have embarked on interest rate hiking cycles, we believe the steepness of curves is attractive.
