Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
Source for performance: T Rowe Price. Net of fees performance is based on end of month redemption prices after the deduction of fees and expenses and the reinvestment of all distributions. Figures include changes in principal value. Investment return and principal value will vary, and an account may be worth more or less at termination than at inception.
Daily performance (MTD, QTD, and YTD) data is based on the latest available NAV minus one business day.
Effective 1 June 2019, the "net" version of the benchmark replaced the "gross" version of the benchmark. The "net" version of the 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.
Returns for time periods greater than one year are annualised.
