RISK LEVEL High There is a risk investors may lose some or all of their initial investment.

Key Features

Investment objective

The Fund's objective is to provide long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in a portfolio of securities of companies which are traded, listed or due to be listed, on recognised exchanges and/or markets throughout the world. The portfolio may include investments in the securities of companies traded, listed or due to be listed, on recognised exchanges and/or markets, of developing countries.

Investment Style and Approach

The investment process involves determining the Fund's investment universe, which includes companies traded, listed or due to be listed, on recognised exchanges and/or markets, of countries which T. Rowe Price has determined are developed or developing countries.

T. Rowe Price leverages the proprietary Fundamental Research and analysis performed by the organisation's integrated worldwide network of more than 100 equity investment professionals to identify highly recommended companies. T. Rowe Price engages investment professionals to identify superior investment ideas, assess opportunities in a global sector context, overlay macroeconomic and local market factors to refine industry and company analysis, and select what they believe to be investments with the most attractive risk-reward characteristics.

The portfolio manager is actively involved with the network of equity investment professionals during the idea generation and refinement process. Ultimately, the portfolio manager applies judgment to construct a focused global portfolio consisting of the highest conviction investment ideas, typically a minimum of 90 holdings, within a diversified framework of country, sector and company guidelines.


Asset Allocation

The assets of the Fund will generally be invested in accordance with the following guidelines:

  • The Fund aims to invest in a portfolio of approximately 130-160 securities of companies which are traded, listed or due to be listed, on recognised exchanges and/or markets throughout the world.
  • The Fund may invest a portion of its portfolio in the securities of companies established, or conducting a significant part of their business activity, in countries which T. Rowe Price considers to be developing countries.
  • The Fund's foreign currency exposures may be hedged up to 10% of the Fund. These hedges will not be made against the Australian dollar but rather will generally be made against the US dollar. The portfolio manager does not anticipate hedging to be a permanent feature of the Fund nor view currency as a primary source of generating returns.
  • The Fund may invest in derivatives to gain exposure to certain assets and markets.
  • The Fund aims to be fully invested in equities however at times the Fund may hold cash or cash equivalents for transactional purposes.

Due to movements in the market or similar events, the guidelines set out above may not be adhered to from time to time. In these circumstances, the Investment Manager will seek to bring the Fund's investments within the guidelines within a reasonable period of time.
