Global Equities
Looking ahead to keep our clients on the right side of change
We live in an era of unprecedented change. Key global industries are being disrupted through technological innovation, changing consumer preferences, and political or regulatory initiatives. This is creating extraordinary opportunities for active investors who are able to anticipate and navigate today’s fast-changing environment, and huge challenges for those that aren’t. Which is why it’s more important than ever to be invested on the right side of change. 

Identifying real insights of change
 
In an era of extreme disruption, what distinguishes intelligent investment decisions is research: the ability to quantify change, fully understand its dimensions, and correctly identify the stocks most likely to benefit from it.
 
That’s why our team of 165 equity analysts goes beyond the numbers, getting out into the field to see first-hand how companies are performing today and, more importantly, to make skilled judgements about how they think they’ll perform in the future.

Risks - The following risks are materially relevant to the fund (refer to prospectus for further details):

Country risk (China) - all investments in China are subject to risks similar to those for other emerging markets investments. In addition, investments that are purchased or held in connection with a QFII licence or the Stock Connect program may be subject to additional risks. Country risk (Russia and Ukraine) - in these countries, risks associated with custody, counterparties and market volatility are higher than in developed countries. Currency risk - changes in currency exchange rates could reduce investment gains or increase investment losses. Emerging markets risk - emerging markets are less established than developed markets and therefore involve higher risks. Small and mid-cap risk - stocks of small and mid-size companies can be more volatile than stocks of larger companies. Style risk - different investment styles typically go in and out of favour depending on market conditions and investor sentiment.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Source for 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.

Daily performance data is based on the latest available NAV.  

The Funds are sub-funds of the T. Rowe Price Funds SICAV, a Luxembourg investment company with variable capital which is registered with Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier and which qualifies as an undertaking for collective investment in transferable securities (“UCITS”). Full details of the objectives, investment policies and risks are located in the prospectus which is available with the key investor information documents in English and in an official language of the jurisdictions in which the Funds are registered for public sale, together with the articles of incorporation and the annual and semi-annual reports (together “Fund Documents”). Any decision to invest should be made on the basis of the Fund Documents which are available free of charge from the local representative, local information/paying agent or from authorised distributors and via www.troweprice.com.
