Investment Philosophy

Taking a steady,
long-term approach.

Our founder, Thomas Rowe Price, Jr., noted that “change is the investor's only certainty.” At T. Rowe Price, we believe our consistent, client-centered investment philosophy has helped us navigate all kinds of markets.

The core of this philosophy―utilizing proprietary research to guide 
active investment selection and diversification to reduce risk―anchors our investment process. Our investment professionals share insights, ideas, and opinions across disciplines and time zones to find the best solutions for our clients in more than 40 countries. For nearly 80 years, this collaborative, disciplined approach has stood the test of time.
