At T. Rowe Price, our vision is to be a premier, global, diversified, active asset manager, delivering for our clients.
Founded during the Great Depression, T. Rowe Price is built on the enduring philosophy of our founder – meeting clients’ individual needs. For over 80 years and through changing investment and economic environments, the core principles that guide our business have remained the same.
At a Glance*
Founded in 1937 by Thomas Rowe Price Jr., the firm focused on building a reputation for the highest character and the soundest investment philosophy. This philosophy has continued as we have grown from the 1930’s to today.
In 1979 the firm partnered with Robert Fleming Holdings to open our first international office in London and began to expand globally. Since then, T. Rowe Price has expanded to Asia and Europe, and is now one of the largest investment firms in the world, managing £911.1 bn* for clients in 49 countries.

Cornerstones of our Investment Approach
Since 1937, our investment approach has remained the same*.
From the beginning, having diverse perspectives has been a cornerstone of our approach at T. Rowe Price. It ensures we have the best talent available and a culture that leverages different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences to meet our clients' needs. We have always embraced a culture of diversity and collaboration, and we consider this indivisible from the firm’s mission to help clients succeed.
This same philosophy guides our community efforts. By helping to improve the quality of life for those around us, we believe our own lives will be enriched in the process. We are committed to making a positive social impact in our global communities, from financial education for children to local volunteering. Since its inception in 1981, the T. Rowe Price foundation has provided US$121 million to non-profit organisations.
