Portfolio Construction

  • Expected 3-7% tracking error
  • Individual positions typically range from 0.30% to 6.00% — average position size from 0.50% to 1.00%

  • Sector ranges +/- 15% absolute deviation from the benchmark
  • Reserves are typically less than 5%
  • Expected Turnover range: 20-40%

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. 

Please note that no management fees are charged to the S and J share classes. No administration agent fees are charged to the J class. Fee arrangements for the S and J classes are made directly with the investment manager. Please see the prospectus for further information.

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

Index returns shown with gross dividends reinvested.

Effective 1 July 2018, the "net" version of the indicative benchmark replaced the "gross" version of the indicative benchmark. The "net" version of the indicative benchmark assumes the reinvestment of dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes applicable to the country where the dividend is paid; as such, the returns of the new benchmark are more representative of the returns experienced by investors in foreign issuers. Historical benchmark performance has been restated accordingly.
