Commentaire du marché CIO

Cher investisseur

Stocks en 2019 Une forte hausse alors que la plupart des principaux indices américains ont atteint des niveaux record dans un rallye à grande échelle qui a plus que compensé 2018. Pertes. Les actions les plus importantes et les moyennes capitalisations étaient les meilleures – le S&P 500 et le Nasdaq ont enregistré la meilleure année depuis 2013. Les actions américaines ont surperformé leurs homologues mondiales, bien que la plupart des indices non américains aient également terminé de solides gains à deux chiffres.

Les valeurs technologiques ont bien performé dans le S&P 500, aidées par les gains importants des géants de l'industrie Apple et Microsoft, et les valeurs financières ont également surperformé l'ensemble du marché. Les titres à revenu fixe ont également réalisé des gains importants au cours de la même période, comme l'ont montré les obligations de sociétés, les rendements à plus long terme du Trésor étant tombés à leurs plus bas historiques à la fin de l'été, après une reprise partielle.

Notant que les marchés publics sont restés disciplinés, les investisseurs ont exprimé leur scepticisme quant à un certain niveau de valorisation du capital-investissement par rapport à leurs perspectives de rentabilité financière. Relativement peu de stocks publics initiaux (IPO) ont été évalués au cours de l'année, et un candidat principal à l'introduction en bourse (WeWork) a décidé de retirer complètement son offre après avoir abandonné sa valorisation de manière spectaculaire dans les semaines précédant l'introduction en bourse proposée.

Alors que l'année commençait avec la crainte que l'escalade du différend commercial américano-chinois n'entraîne une récession, les banques centrales mondiales ont joué un rôle important dans le soutien des marchés. Les décideurs de la Fed ont réduit leurs taux d'intérêt d'un quart de point de pourcentage en juillet, septembre et octobre et ont pris des mesures pour maintenir la liquidité sur les marchés des prêts à court terme. D'autres banques centrales ont également pris des mesures pour croître rapidement, notamment la Banque centrale européenne, qui a abaissé le taux de dépôt de référence plus profondément en territoire négatif et a annoncé la reprise de son programme d'assouplissement quantitatif.

Au cœur d'une politique monétaire positive se trouve un changement brutal depuis 2018, lorsque la Fed a relevé ses taux d'intérêt à quatre reprises, et l'économie semble avoir réussi. Après la fin du contrat en 2019, les chiffres clés de la production aux États-Unis ont montré une stabilisation à la fin de l'année, tandis que le marché du travail est resté robuste, avec de fortes augmentations de salaires et le chômage atteignant son plus bas niveau en 50 ans. Dans cette conjoncture économique en plein essor, il n'est pas étonnant que décembre Les responsables de la Fed semblaient convaincus que la politique monétaire était bien préparée pour soutenir une croissance soutenue et les projections pour 2020.

Outre les politiques des banques centrales, les investisseurs ont également suivi de près l'évolution du différend commercial américano-chinois. Les stocks ont chuté en mai et août après que les États-Unis ont annoncé de nouveaux tarifs sur certains droits d'importation chinois, et la Chine a riposté avec de nouveaux tarifs. Cependant, les investisseurs étaient généralement optimistes quant aux pourparlers commerciaux qui limitaient les péages de la guerre commerciale et, en décembre, les deux parties ont annoncé un accord de "première étape" pour réduire certains tarifs existants et en annuler de nouveaux.

Étant donné que la politique monétaire dans le monde est fondamentalement engagée dans la liquidité des marchés et que certains indicateurs de l'économie mondiale montrent des signes d'amélioration, il y a des raisons d'être optimiste pour 2020. Cependant, les investisseurs prudents s'attendent à ce que nous n'attendions pas de bénéfices excessifs par rapport à l'année dernière. Si nécessaire après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le S&P 500 a généré une moyenne de retours à un chiffre au cours de la quatrième année de son cycle présidentiel.

De nouveaux développements sur le marché devraient suivre en 2019. La reprise régulière de la croissance des revenus et les risques mondiaux feront défaut dans les années à venir. Les problèmes commerciaux non résolus, les tensions au Moyen-Orient et les débats politiques sur les disparités fiscales, sanitaires et de richesse qui ont conduit à l'élection présidentielle américaine pourraient entraîner une volatilité du marché.

En plus de ces risques, les analystes de T. Rowe Price examineront attentivement les forces perturbatrices telles que l'innovation, le changement technologique et l'automatisation qui pourraient affecter de plus en plus d'industries mondiales. Dans un environnement incertain où il est possible de disperser les rendements, nous pensons qu'une recherche fondamentale approfondie, couvrant les aspects environnementaux, sociaux et de gouvernance, sera cruciale pour une évaluation réussie des opportunités et des risques. Je suis convaincu que notre approche d'investissement stratégique continuera de profiter à nos actionnaires.

Merci de votre confiance continue envers T. Rowe Price.

Discussion de la direction sur le rendement du fonds

OBJECTIF D'INVESTISSEMENT

Le fonds vise à garantir un rapport qualité-prix et un revenu élevés.

COMMENTAIRE DU FONDS

Comment le fonds a-t-il fonctionné au cours des 12 derniers mois?

Fonds d'obligations institutionnelles des marchés émergents T.Rowe Price pour la période de 12 mois close en mars 2019. Au 31 décembre, le rendement était de 12,68%, inférieur à l'indice de référence «J.P. Morgan Emerging Markets Bond Index Global Diversified et Lipper peer group average. (Les performances passées ne garantissent pas les performances futures.)

Quels facteurs ont influencé la performance du fonds?

Les décisions d'allocation géographique du fonds ont réduit les rendements relatifs. La surallocation des portefeuilles du Venezuela a interrompu la performance car le pays a survécu à la crise politique et économique et ses obligations ont dû faire face à des sanctions du marché secondaire et à une liquidité très limitée. Les obligations vénézuéliennes ont régulièrement baissé au cours de l'année en raison de radiations de prix et de la désindexation. Nous pensons que la crise économique et politique en cours finira par changer le régime au Venezuela et augmentera les chances de retour en raison d'une possible restructuration de la dette, car il existe une richesse considérable pour garantir ces bas prix des obligations. Cependant, nous prévoyons une fluctuation constante des obligations et un éventuel processus de restructuration prolongé. La surpondération de l'Argentine a également nui aux résultats. La souveraineté à haut rendement a chuté en août après que le candidat de l'opposition Alberto Fernández a remporté un mandat présidentiel plus que prévu. Ce résultat a immédiatement suscité des inquiétudes quant à la volonté de l'Argentine de poursuivre les réformes économiques et à la possibilité de payer un lourd fardeau de la dette en dollars. Plus tard cette année-là, les actifs argentins ont commencé à se remettre des niveaux revendus. D'un autre côté, notre sous-pondération au Liban a augmenté la productivité relative. Le gouvernement libanais nouvellement formé a cherché à mettre en œuvre les réformes nécessaires pour alléger son lourd fardeau de la dette et obtenir un soutien étranger. Puis, en octobre, de vastes manifestations anti-gouvernementales et contre la corruption ont conduit à la démission du Premier ministre.

Les choix de sécurité ont contribué à des rendements relatifs. Les positions dans des entités d'État semi-souveraines ont été bénéfiques. Ces émetteurs offrent des bonus de souveraineté avec le soutien du gouvernement. Notre sélection de sociétés brésiliennes a contribué à la performance relative, principalement en raison de positions dans des sociétés pétrolières partiellement publiques Petrobrasdans une période qui a dépassé le souverain. Petrobras a profité de la hausse des prix du pétrole et d'un meilleur équilibre. La sélection au Mexique a profité du fait que la surpondération du portefeuille a été distribuée aux sociétés pétrolières publiques Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) et Mexico City Airport Trust (MEXCAT). Le soutien accru du gouvernement à PEMEX et l'achat continu d'obligations MEXCAT ont aidé à produire des résultats. (Voir le portefeuille de placements du fonds pour une liste complète des actions disponibles et le montant de chaque portefeuille.)

La faible exposition du fonds aux devises des marchés émergents a quelque peu contribué aux résultats. La livre égyptienne, gagnée sur les obligations domestiques du pays, affiche des rendements élevés et les investissements étrangers ont augmenté. Pendant la majeure partie de la période considérée, la durée du portefeuille a été plus courte que celle de l'indice de référence, ce qui a légèrement réduit les rendements relatifs, car les taux de base ont généralement baissé. (La duration mesure la sensibilité des obligations aux variations des taux d'intérêt.)

Comment le fonds est-il organisé?

Le portefeuille conserve le poids des marchés à faible rendement qui offrent une valeur relative limitée, par rapport à la Chine, aux Philippines et aux récents indices du CCG. Nous sommes surpondérés dans les pays à revenu élevé tels que l'Ukraine et le Brésil, qui offrent de meilleures opportunités de rendements ajustés au risque, en particulier des histoires idiosyncratiques avec un élan positif pour la réforme. Il montre un biais de style philosophique dans la façon dont nous traitons un portefeuille plutôt qu'une solution de positionnement tactique.

Nous conservons une allocation significative sur les obligations de sociétés des marchés émergents. Bien que nous croyions que la dette des entreprises a un grand potentiel pour bénéficier d'une croissance accélérée, nous tenons également compte du fait que les obligations de sociétés des marchés émergents sont généralement moins liquides que la dette publique. Dans le segment des sociétés des marchés émergents, nous avons tendance à privilégier les émetteurs presque indépendants tels que le brésilien Petrobras et le mexicain PEMEX, car ils sont généralement plus liquides que les sociétés traditionnelles et offrent des liens similaires avec les principales tendances de croissance.

En termes de risque de portefeuille tactique, nous avons légèrement ajouté des positions plus risquées en début d'année comme 2018 Au final, la pression de la classe de vente d'actifs a produit des valorisations attractives. Récemment, nous avons pris un risque de portefeuille et sommes un peu plus conservateurs par rapport à notre propre histoire. Bien que nous maintenions notre sous-pondération structurelle dans les pays à faible revenu, nous avons inclus plusieurs pays défensifs comme Israël, la Russie et l'Arabie saoudite. Nous avons également réduit notre surpondération sur la Turquie en raison des préoccupations persistantes concernant les réformes économiques et la géopolitique.

Parfois, le fonds a de petites obligations libellées en monnaie locale, dont la valeur relative semble convaincante par rapport à la dette libellée en dollars américains. À la fin de la période, la dette en monnaie locale représentait environ 2% du portefeuille. Selon la perspective d'une devise particulière et les coûts impliqués, nous pouvons couvrir le taux de change en tout ou en partie pour réduire le risque, ou choisir de ne pas couvrir si la devise semble être capable d'augmenter le ratio du dollar.

La liquidité du marché est une variable clé que nous surveillons de près. Une liquidité réduite peut limiter notre capacité à acheter et vendre des obligations des marchés émergents à des prix efficients. La dette des marchés émergents, en tant qu'une des catégories d'actifs à revenu fixe les plus risquées et les moins négociables, a tendance à être moins liquide que la dette souveraine de haute qualité telle que les bons du Trésor américain. Une volatilité accrue des marchés peut entraîner une liquidité limitée des obligations dans certains pays en développement. Par conséquent, nous considérons activement la profondeur et la liquidité du marché lors de l'évaluation d'une obligation d'achat ou de vente.

Quelle est la perspective de gestion de portefeuille?

Alors que la croissance mondiale inégale et la guerre commerciale entre les États-Unis et la Chine sont restées au premier plan tout au long de 2019, une politique monétaire mondiale favorable et une importante dette à revenu négatif dans les marchés développés ont fortement soutenu la dette des marchés émergents.

Malgré l'environnement de risque mondial, nous optimisons prudemment la classe d'actifs car elle offre l'une des plus grandes opportunités sur le marché des titres à revenu fixe et s'est avérée de plus en plus robuste du fait des corrections de marché. Après une année 2019 forte. La différence avec l'augmentation au cours de l'histoire restera raisonnable. (Les écarts de crédit mesurent le rendement supplémentaire requis par les investisseurs pour détenir des obligations à risque de crédit sur des titres d'État de haute qualité tels que des bons du Trésor américain ayant des échéances similaires.) Ce rendement fournit un amortisseur important pour la volatilité externe. En outre, la Réserve fédérale américaine plus audacieuse a facilité la conduite de la politique monétaire par les marchés émergents et peut soutenir des devises non importantes.

Les fondamentaux économiques soutiennent toujours les marchés émergents, notamment une croissance économique stable, des dépenses publiques plus disciplinées, une faible inflation, des comptes courants largement équilibrés et des politiques économiques saines dans de nombreux marchés clés. À court terme, nous pensons que les risques macroéconomiques externes, notamment les élections aux États-Unis et la croissance mondiale, ainsi que certains facteurs idiosyncratiques sur les marchés émergents, seront le principal moteur. Ces facteurs propres à chaque pays comprennent l'impact de la guerre commerciale et des mesures de relance budgétaire intérieure sur la Chine, et la trajectoire politique en Afrique du Sud, en Turquie, en Argentine et sur d'autres marchés émergents avec des taux bêta-bêta plus élevés. Dans cet environnement incertain, nous pensons que l'extension de la portée des plateformes mondiales de recherche sur le crédit, le gouvernement et les actions de T.Rowe Price, combinée à notre accent sur la collaboration sur ces plateformes, nous confère un avantage essentiel dans l'analyse des risques et des opportunités sur les marchés émergents. endetté.

Risque d'investissement obligataire international

Les fonds qui investissent à l'étranger prennent généralement plus de risques que les fonds qui investissent massivement dans des actifs américains, y compris des variations imprévisibles de la valeur des devises. Les investissements dans les marchés émergents baissent fortement et devraient être considérés comme de la spéculation. Les structures économiques et politiques des pays en développement ne sont généralement pas comparables à celles des États-Unis ou d'autres pays développés en termes de prospérité et de stabilité, et leurs marchés financiers manquent souvent de liquidités. Certains pays ont également un héritage d'hyperinflation, de dévaluation de la monnaie et d'intervention gouvernementale.

Les investissements internationaux sont soumis au risque de change, une diminution de la valeur d'une devise étrangère par rapport au dollar américain, ce qui se traduit par une diminution de la valeur en dollars des titres libellés dans cette devise. L'impact global sur les avoirs du fonds peut être substantiel et à long terme, selon les devises du portefeuille, la façon dont chacune est évaluée ou dépréciée par rapport au dollar américain et si les positions en devises sont couvertes. En outre, les fluctuations des taux de change sont imprévisibles et il est impossible de couvrir efficacement les risques de change de nombreux pays en développement.

Les obligations sont également soumises au risque de taux d'intérêt, une baisse des prix des obligations, généralement accompagnée d'une hausse des taux d'intérêt, et risque de crédit, la probabilité que la note de crédit d'un fonds soit dégradée ou que l'émetteur de l'obligation fasse défaut (ne payant pas les intérêts ou le capital à temps) peut entraîner une baisse du revenu et du cours de l'action du fonds.

REMBOURSEMENTS TOTAUX MOYENS ANNUELS DES COMPOSANTS

EXEMPLE DE DÉPENSES DE FONDS

En tant qu'actionnaire d'un fonds commun de placement, vous pouvez encourir deux types de coûts: (1) les frais de transaction, tels que les frais de rachat ou les frais de souscription, et (2) les frais courants, y compris les frais de gestion, les frais de distribution et d'entretien (12b-1) et les autres frais du fonds. . Cet exemple est destiné à vous aider à comprendre les coûts d'investissement actuels de votre fonds (en dollars) et à comparer ces coûts avec les coûts d'investissement actuels d'autres fonds communs de placement. Cet exemple est basé sur un investissement de 1 000 $ investi au début de la dernière période de six mois et détenu tout au long de la période.

Coûts réels
La première ligne de ce tableau (Réel) contient des informations sur les valeurs réelles du compte et les coûts réels. Vous pouvez utiliser les informations de cette ligne pour estimer les coûts que vous avez payés au cours de la période, ainsi que le solde de votre compte. Divisez simplement la valeur de votre compte par 1 000 $ (par exemple, 8 600 $ valeur de compte divisée par 1 000 = 8,6 $), puis multipliez le résultat par le nombre de la première ligne sous la rubrique "Coût de la période" pour estimer le coût, que vous avez payé pour votre compte. compte pendant cette période.

Un exemple hypothétique d'objectifs de comparaison
Les informations de la deuxième ligne du tableau (hypothétiques) sont basées sur des valeurs de compte et des coûts hypothétiques dérivés du ratio des coûts réels du fonds et un rendement estimatif de 5% par an sur les coûts (pas les rendements réels du fonds). Vous pouvez comparer le coût actuel d'un investissement dans un fonds avec d'autres fonds en comparant cet exemple hypothétique de 5% et les exemples hypothétiques de 5% qui sont disponibles dans les rapports des actionnaires d'autres fonds. Les valeurs et les coûts fictifs du compte ne peuvent pas être utilisés pour calculer le solde ou les coûts réels du compte que vous avez payés pour la période.

Vous devez également savoir que les coûts indiqués dans le tableau ne font que mettre en évidence vos coûts actuels et ne reflètent aucun coût de transaction tel que les frais de rachat ou les frais de vente. Par conséquent, la deuxième ligne du tableau est utile pour comparer uniquement les coûts actuels et n'aidera pas à déterminer les coûts totaux relatifs de la détention de différents fonds. Cependant, dans la mesure où le fonds facture des frais de transaction, le coût total de possession du fonds est plus élevé.

NOTES AUX ÉTATS FINANCIERS

Fonds internationaux institutionnels T. Rowe Price, Inc. (corporation) est constituée sous les années 40. Loi sur les sociétés d'investissement (loi de 1940). Le Fonds obligataire institutionnel des marchés émergents (le «Fonds») est une société d'investissement diversifiée à capital variable créée par une société. Le fonds vise à garantir un rapport qualité-prix et un revenu élevés.

NOTE 1 – PRINCIPALES CONVENTIONS COMPTABLES

Base de préparation Le Fonds est une entreprise d'investissement et suit les lignes directrices en matière de comptabilité et de communication de l'information du Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). Codification des normes comptables Sujet 946 (ASC 946). Les états financiers ci-joints ont été préparés conformément aux principes comptables généralement reconnus aux États-Unis (PCGR), y compris, mais sans s'y limiter, ASC 946. Les PCGR nécessitent l'utilisation d'estimations faites par la direction. La direction estime que les estimations et les évaluations sont appropriées; cependant, les résultats réels peuvent différer de ces estimations et les estimations présentées dans les états financiers ci-joints peuvent différer des valeurs finalement réalisées à la vente ou à l'échéance. Certains montants de l'exercice précédent dans les états financiers ci-joints et les informations financières clés ont été retraités pour se conformer à la présentation de l'exercice en cours.

Opérations d'investissement, revenus d'investissement et distribution Les transactions d'investissement sont comptabilisées le jour ouvrable. Les produits et les charges sont comptabilisés selon la comptabilité d'exercice. Les gains et pertes réalisés sont comptabilisés au coût. Les primes et escomptes sur les titres de créance sont amortis aux fins de l'information financière. Les revenus d'intérêts et les pénalités, le cas échéant, sont comptabilisés en charges d'impôt sur le résultat. Les dividendes reçus de placements dans des fonds communs de placement sont présentés comme des revenus de dividendes; les distributions de gains en capital sont reflétées comme des gains / pertes réalisés. Le revenu de dividendes et les bénéfices distribués sont distribués à la date d'expiration du dividende. Les dividendes non monétaires, le cas échéant, sont évalués à la juste valeur marchande des actifs reçus. Les distributions aux actionnaires sont comptabilisées à la date d'expiration du dividende. La répartition des revenus est déclarée quotidiennement et versée mensuellement. Le Fonds peut également déclarer et verser des distributions de gains en capital sur une base annuelle.

Conversion de devises Les actifs, y compris les investissements, et les passifs libellés en devises sont convertis quotidiennement en dollars américains au taux de change en vigueur en utilisant l'offre moyenne et les cotations en dollars américains cotées par la principale banque. Les achats et les ventes de titres, les produits et les charges sont convertis en dollars américains au taux de change en vigueur à la date pertinente de cette transaction. L'effet des variations des taux de change sur les gains et les pertes réalisés et non réalisés sur les titres n'est pas distingué de la part attribuable aux variations des prix du marché.

Frais de rachat Jusqu'en 2019 1er avril Une commission de 2% a été calculée pour le rachat des actions du fonds détenues pendant 90 jours ou moins afin de décourager les opérations à court terme et de protéger les intérêts des actionnaires à long terme. Les frais de rachat n'ont pas été déduits du produit de la vente ou de l'échange d'actions du Fonds. Les impôts ont été versés au fonds et comptabilisés comme une augmentation du capital versé. Du fait de ces frais, le prix de rachat par action peut différer de la valeur liquidative par action.

Nouvelles directives comptables À partir de 2019 1er janvier Le Fonds a adopté les recommandations du FASB qui ont raccourci la période d'amortissement pour certains titres de créance négociables considérés comme des primes. L'acceptation n'a eu aucune incidence sur l'actif net ou les résultats d'exploitation du Fonds.

Compensation Dans le cours normal de ses activités, le Fonds peut indemniser les dommages causés à ses dirigeants et administrateurs, prestataires de services et / ou sociétés privées. En vertu de cet arrangement, le risque maximal du fonds est inconnu; cependant, le risque de perte matérielle est actuellement considéré comme faible.

NOTE 2 – ÉVALUATION

Les instruments financiers du Fonds sont évalués et la valeur liquidative par action est calculée à la clôture de la Bourse de New York (NYSE), généralement à 16 heures. ET, Chaque jour, le NYSE est ouvert aux affaires. Cependant, la valeur liquidative par action peut être calculée en dehors de la forclusion ordinaire de NYSE si le commerce de NYSE est restreint, si le NYSE est forclos plus tôt, ou comme autorisé par la SEC.

Juste valeur Les instruments financiers du Fonds sont comptabilisés à la juste valeur, qui est définie dans les PCGR comme le prix qui aurait été reçu pour la vente d'actifs ou pour le transfert de passifs dans une transaction ordonnée entre les acteurs du marché à la date d'évaluation. Le comité d'évaluation des prix de M. Rowe (le «comité d'évaluation») est un comité interne chargé par le conseil d'administration du Fonds de certaines responsabilités visant à garantir que les instruments financiers sont correctement évalués à la juste valeur et conformément aux années 40. Faites-le. Le comité d'évaluation, sous le contrôle du conseil, élabore et supervise les politiques et procédures de tarification et approuve toutes les déterminations de la juste valeur. Le comité d'évaluation établit des procédures pour l'évaluation des titres; identifie les méthodes de tarification, les sources et les individus qui peuvent effectuer une tarification à la juste valeur; supervise la sélection, les services et l'application des fournisseurs de prix; superviser les pratiques de continuité des activités liées à l'évaluation; et fournit des conseils sur les questions de contrôle interne et d'évaluation. Le comité d'évaluation fait rapport au conseil, représenté par les trésoriers juridiques, de gestion de portefeuille et de négociation, d'exploitation, de gestion des risques et de fonds.

Diverses techniques et données d'évaluation sont utilisées pour déterminer la juste valeur des instruments financiers. Les PCGR établissent une hiérarchie de juste valeur qui classe les données utilisées pour évaluer la juste valeur:

Niveau 1 – Cours cotés (non ajustés) d'instruments financiers identiques disponibles pour le fonds à la date de clôture

Niveau 2 – Cotations de prix autres que le niveau 1, directement ou indirectement observables (y compris, mais sans s'y limiter, les prix d'instruments financiers similaires sur des marchés actifs, les cotations sur des marchés inactifs d'instruments financiers identiques ou similaires) et les courbes de rendement, la volatilité implicite et les écarts de crédit )

Niveau 3 – Entrées discrètes

Les données observées sont générées à l'aide de données de marché, telles que des informations accessibles au public sur des événements ou des transactions réels, et reflètent les hypothèses que les acteurs du marché utiliseraient pour déterminer le prix d'un instrument financier. Les données non observables sont celles pour lesquelles il n'y a pas de données de marché et qui sont générées en utilisant les meilleures informations disponibles sur les hypothèses que les acteurs du marché utiliseraient pour déterminer le prix d'un instrument financier. Les PCGR exigent des méthodes d'évaluation pour maximiser l'utilisation des données d'observation pertinentes et minimiser l'utilisation de données non observables. Lorsque plusieurs entrées sont utilisées pour déterminer la juste valeur, un instrument financier se voit attribuer un niveau de hiérarchie de juste valeur basé sur le niveau d'entrée le plus bas qui est significatif pour la juste valeur de l'instrument financier. Les niveaux d'achat ne reflètent pas nécessairement le niveau de risque ou de liquidité associé aux instruments financiers à ce niveau, mais plutôt le degré de jugement utilisé pour déterminer ces valeurs.

Paprastai skolos vertybiniai popieriai priskiriami tikrosios vertės hierarchijos 2 lygiui; tačiau tiek, kiek vertinimai apima reikšmingus nepastebimus duomenis, vertybiniai popieriai būtų suskirstyti į 3 lygį.

Nuosavybės vertybiniai popieriai, kotiruojami arba kuriais reguliariai prekiaujama vertybinių popierių biržoje arba ne biržos (OTC) rinkoje, yra vertinami pagal paskutinę kotiruojamą pardavimo kainą arba, tam tikrose rinkose, oficialią uždarymo kainą tuo metu, kai atliekamas vertinimas. Nebiržiniai skelbimų lentos vertybiniai popieriai yra vertinami uždarymo kainos ir prašomų kainų vidurkiu. Vertybinis popierius, kuris yra įtrauktas į sąrašą arba kuriuo prekiaujama daugiau nei vienoje biržoje, vertinamas pagal vertybinių popierių biržos pasiūlymą, kuris, kaip nustatyta, yra pagrindinė tokio vertybinio popieriaus rinka. Į biržos sąrašus įtraukti vertybiniai popieriai, kuriais neprekiaujama tam tikrą dieną, yra vertinami pagal uždarymo kainą ir vietinių vertybinių popierių prašomas kainas ir paskutinę kotiruojamą tarptautinių vertybinių popierių pardavimo ar uždarymo kainą.

Jei fondas nuspręs, kad pokyčiai tarp užsienio rinkos uždarymo ir NYSE uždarymo turės įtakos kai kurių ar visų jo portfelio vertybinių popierių vertei, fondas pakoreguos ankstesnes kotiruojamas kainas, kad atspindėtų tai, kas, jo manymu, yra tikroji vertė. of the securities as of the close of the NYSE. In deciding whether it is necessary to adjust quoted prices to reflect fair value, the fund reviews a variety of factors, including developments in foreign markets, the performance of U.S. securities markets, and the performance of instruments trading in U.S. markets that represent foreign securities and baskets of foreign securities. The fund may also fair value securities in other situations, such as when a particular foreign market is closed but the fund is open. The fund uses outside pricing services to provide it with quoted prices and information to evaluate or adjust those prices. The fund cannot predict how often it will use quoted prices and how often it will determine it necessary to adjust those prices to reflect fair value. As a means of evaluating its security valuation process, the fund routinely compares quoted prices, the next day’s opening prices in the same markets, and adjusted prices.

Actively traded equity securities listed on a domestic exchange generally are categorized in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. Non-U.S. equity securities generally are categorized in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy despite the availability of quoted prices because, as described above, the fund evaluates and determines whether those quoted prices reflect fair value at the close of the NYSE or require adjustment. OTC Bulletin Board securities, certain preferred securities, and equity securities traded in inactive markets generally are categorized in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

Investments in mutual funds are valued at the mutual fund’s closing NAV per share on the day of valuation and are categorized in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. Financial futures contracts are valued at closing settlement prices and are categorized in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. Forward currency exchange contracts are valued using the prevailing forward exchange rate and are categorized in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. Assets and liabilities other than financial instruments, including short-term receivables and payables, are carried at cost, or estimated realizable value, if less, which approximates fair value.

Thinly traded financial instruments and those for which the above valuation procedures are inappropriate or are deemed not to reflect fair value are stated at fair value as determined in good faith by the Valuation Committee. The objective of any fair value pricing determination is to arrive at a price that could reasonably be expected from a current sale. Financial instruments fair valued by the Valuation Committee are primarily private placements, restricted securities, warrants, rights, and other securities that are not publicly traded.

Subject to oversight by the Board, the Valuation Committee regularly makes good faith judgments to establish and adjust the fair valuations of certain securities as events occur and circumstances warrant. For instance, in determining the fair value of troubled or thinly traded debt instruments, the Valuation Committee considers a variety of factors, which may include, but are not limited to, the issuer’s business prospects, its financial standing and performance, recent investment transactions in the issuer, strategic events affecting the company, market liquidity for the issuer, and general economic conditions and events. In consultation with the investment and pricing teams, the Valuation Committee will determine an appropriate valuation technique based on available information, which may include both observable and unobservable inputs. The Valuation Committee typically will afford greatest weight to actual prices in arm’s length transactions, to the extent they represent orderly transactions between market participants, transaction information can be reliably obtained, and prices are deemed representative of fair value. However, the Valuation Committee may also consider other valuation methods such as a discount or premium from market value of a similar, freely traded security of the same issuer; discounted cash flows; yield to maturity; or some combination. Fair value determinations are reviewed on a regular basis and updated as information becomes available, including actual purchase and sale transactions of the issue. Because any fair value determination involves a significant amount of judgment, there is a degree of subjectivity inherent in such pricing decisions, and fair value prices determined by the Valuation Committee could differ from those of other market participants. Depending on the relative significance of unobservable inputs, including the valuation technique(s) used, fair valued securities may be categorized in Level 2 or 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

Valuation Inputs The following table summarizes the fund’s financial instruments, based on the inputs used to determine their fair values on December 31, 2019 (for further detail by category, please refer to the accompanying Portfolio of Investments):

Following is a reconciliation of the fund’s Level 3 holdings for the year ended December 31, 2019. Gain (loss) reflects both realized and change in unrealized gain/loss on Level 3 holdings during the period, if any, and is included on the accompanying Statement of Operations. The change in unrealized gain/loss on Level 3 instruments held at December 31, 2019, totaled $(36,000) for the year ended December 31, 2019.

NOTE 3 – DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the fund invested in derivative instruments. As defined by GAAP, a derivative is a financial instrument whose value is derived from an underlying security price, foreign exchange rate, interest rate, index of prices or rates, or other variable; it requires little or no initial investment and permits or requires net settlement. The fund invests in derivatives only if the expected risks and rewards are consistent with its investment objectives, policies, and overall risk profile, as described in its prospectus and Statement of Additional Information. The fund may use derivatives for a variety of purposes, such as seeking to hedge against declines in principal value, increase yield, invest in an asset with greater efficiency and at a lower cost than is possible through direct investment, to enhance return, or to adjust portfolio duration and credit exposure. The risks associated with the use of derivatives are different from, and potentially much greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in the instruments on which the derivatives are based. The fund at all times maintains sufficient cash reserves, liquid assets, or other SEC-permitted asset types to cover its settlement obligations under open derivative contracts.

The fund values its derivatives at fair value and recognizes changes in fair value currently in its results of operations. Accordingly, the fund does not follow hedge accounting, even for derivatives employed as economic hedges. Generally, the fund accounts for its derivatives on a gross basis. It does not offset the fair value of derivative liabilities against the fair value of derivative assets on its financial statements, nor does it offset the fair value of derivative instruments against the right to reclaim or obligation to return collateral. The following table summarizes the fair value of the fund’s derivative instruments held as of December 31, 2019, and the related location on the accompanying Statement of Assets and Liabilities, presented by primary underlying risk exposure:

Additionally, the amount of gains and losses on derivative instruments recognized in fund earnings during the year ended December 31, 2019, and the related location on the accompanying Statement of Operations is summarized in the following table by primary underlying risk exposure:

Counterparty Risk and Collateral The fund invests in derivatives in various markets, which expose it to differing levels of counterparty risk. Counterparty risk on exchange-traded and centrally cleared derivative contracts, such as futures, exchange-traded options, and centrally cleared swaps, is minimal because the clearinghouse provides protection against counterparty defaults. For futures and centrally cleared swaps, the fund is required to deposit collateral in an amount specified by the clearinghouse and the clearing firm (margin requirement), and the margin requirement must be maintained over the life of the contract. Each clearinghouse and clearing firm, in its sole discretion, may adjust the margin requirements applicable to the fund.

Derivatives, such as bilateral swaps, forward currency exchange contracts, and OTC options, that are transacted and settle directly with a counterparty (bilateral derivatives) may expose the fund to greater counterparty risk. To mitigate this risk, the fund has entered into master netting arrangements (MNAs) with certain counterparties that permit net settlement under specified conditions and, for certain counterparties, also require the exchange of collateral to cover mark-to-market exposure. MNAs may be in the form of International Swaps and Derivatives Association master agreements (ISDAs) or foreign exchange letter agreements (FX letters).

MNAs provide the ability to offset amounts the fund owes a counterparty against amounts the counterparty owes the fund (net settlement). Both ISDAs and FX letters generally allow termination of transactions and net settlement upon the occurrence of contractually specified events, such as failure to pay or bankruptcy. In addition, ISDAs specify other events, the occurrence of which would allow one of the parties to terminate. For example, a downgrade in credit rating of a counterparty below a specified rating would allow the fund to terminate, while a decline in the fund’s net assets of more than a specified percentage would allow the counterparty to terminate. Upon termination, all transactions with that counterparty would be liquidated and a net termination amount settled. ISDAs include collateral agreements whereas FX letters do not. Collateral requirements are determined daily based on the net aggregate unrealized gain or loss on all bilateral derivatives with a counterparty, subject to minimum transfer amounts that typically range from $100,000 to $250,000. Any additional collateral required due to changes in security values is typically transferred the next business day.

Collateral may be in the form of cash or debt securities issued by the U.S. government or related agencies. Cash posted by the fund is reflected as cash deposits in the accompanying financial statements and generally is restricted from withdrawal by the fund; securities posted by the fund are so noted in the accompanying Portfolio of Investments; both remain in the fund’s assets. Collateral pledged by counterparties is not included in the fund’s assets because the fund does not obtain effective control over those assets. For bilateral derivatives, collateral posted or received by the fund is held in a segregated account at the fund’s custodian. While typically not sold in the same manner as equity or fixed income securities, exchange-traded or centrally cleared derivatives may be closed out only on the exchange or clearinghouse where the contracts were traded, and OTC and bilateral derivatives may be unwound with counterparties or transactions assigned to other counterparties to allow the fund to exit the transaction. This ability is subject to the liquidity of underlying positions. As of December 31, 2019, no collateral was pledged by either the fund or counterparties for bilateral derivatives. As of December 31, 2019, cash of $301,000 had been posted by the fund for exchange-traded and/or centrally cleared derivatives.

Forward Currency Exchange Contracts The fund is subject to foreign currency exchange rate risk in the normal course of pursuing its investment objectives. It uses forward currency exchange contracts (forwards) primarily to protect its non-U.S. dollar-denominated securities from adverse currency movements and to increase exposure to a particular foreign currency, to shift the fund’s foreign currency exposure from one country to another, or to enhance the fund’s return. A forward involves an obligation to purchase or sell a fixed amount of a specific currency on a future date at a price set at the time of the contract. Although certain forwards may be settled by exchanging only the net gain or loss on the contract, most forwards are settled with the exchange of the underlying currencies in accordance with the specified terms. Forwards are valued at the unrealized gain or loss on the contract, which reflects the net amount the fund either is entitled to receive or obligated to deliver, as measured by the difference between the forward exchange rates at the date of entry into the contract and the forward rates at the reporting date. Appreciated forwards are reflected as assets and depreciated forwards are reflected as liabilities on the accompanying Statement of Assets and Liabilities. Risks related to the use of forwards include the possible failure of counterparties to meet the terms of the agreements; that anticipated currency movements will not occur, thereby reducing the fund’s total return; and the potential for losses in excess of the fund’s initial investment. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the volume of the fund’s activity in forwards, based on underlying notional amounts, was generally between 2% and 5% of net assets.

Futures Contracts The fund is subject to interest rate risk in the normal course of pursuing its investment objectives and uses futures contracts to help manage such risk. The fund may enter into futures contracts to manage exposure to interest rate and yield curve movements, security prices, foreign currencies, credit quality, and mortgage prepayments; as an efficient means of adjusting exposure to all or part of a target market; to enhance income; as a cash management tool; or to adjust portfolio duration and credit exposure. A futures contract provides for the future sale by one party and purchase by another of a specified amount of a specific underlying financial instrument at an agreed upon price, date, time, and place. The fund currently invests only in exchange-traded futures, which generally are standardized as to maturity date, underlying financial instrument, and other contract terms. Payments are made or received by the fund each day to settle daily fluctuations in the value of the contract (variation margin), which reflect changes in the value of the underlying financial instrument. Variation margin is recorded as unrealized gain or loss until the contract is closed. The value of a futures contract included in net assets is the amount of unsettled variation margin; net variation margin receivable is reflected as an asset and net variation margin payable is reflected as a liability on the accompanying Statement of Assets and Liabilities. Risks related to the use of futures contracts include possible illiquidity of the futures markets, contract prices that can be highly volatile and imperfectly correlated to movements in hedged security values and/or interest rates, and potential losses in excess of the fund’s initial investment. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the volume of the fund’s activity in futures, based on underlying notional amounts, was generally between 3% and 8% of net assets.

Options The fund is subject to foreign currency exchange risk in the normal course of pursuing its investment objectives and uses options to help manage such risk. The fund may use options to manage exposure to security prices, interest rates, foreign currencies, and credit quality; as an efficient means of adjusting exposure to all or a part of a target market; to enhance income; as a cash management tool; or to adjust credit exposure. Options are included in net assets at fair value, options purchased are included in Investments in Securities, and Options written are separately reflected as a liability on the accompanying Statement of Assets and Liabilities. Premiums on unexercised, expired options are recorded as realized gains or losses; premiums on exercised options are recorded as an adjustment to the proceeds from the sale or cost of the purchase. The difference between the premium and the amount received or paid in a closing transaction is also treated as realized gain or loss. In return for a premium paid, currency options give the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy and sell currency at a specified exchange rate. Risks related to the use of options include possible illiquidity of the options markets; trading restrictions imposed by an exchange or counterparty; movements in the underlying asset values and currency values; and, for options written, potential losses in excess of the fund’s initial investment. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the volume of the fund’s activity in options, based on underlying notional amounts, was generally between 1% and 7% of net assets.

Swaps The fund is subject to interest rate risk and credit risk in the normal course of pursuing its investment objectives and uses swap contracts to help manage such risks. The fund may use swaps in an effort to manage both long and short exposure to changes in interest rates, inflation rates, and credit quality; to adjust overall exposure to certain markets; to enhance total return or protect the value of portfolio securities; to serve as a cash management tool; or to adjust portfolio duration and credit exposure. Swap agreements can be settled either directly with the counterparty (bilateral swap) or through a central clearinghouse (centrally cleared swap). Fluctuations in the fair value of a contract are reflected in unrealized gain or loss and are reclassified to realized gain or loss upon contract termination or cash settlement. Net periodic receipts or payments required by a contract increase or decrease, respectively, the value of the contract until the contractual payment date, at which time such amounts are reclassified from unrealized to realized gain or loss. For bilateral swaps, cash payments are made or received by the fund on a periodic basis in accordance with contract terms; unrealized gain on contracts and premiums paid are reflected as assets and unrealized loss on contracts and premiums received are reflected as liabilities on the accompanying Statement of Assets and Liabilities. For bilateral swaps, premiums paid or received are amortized over the life of the swap and are recognized as realized gain or loss in the Statement of Operations. For centrally cleared swaps, payments are made or received by the fund each day to settle the daily fluctuation in the value of the contract (variation margin). Accordingly, the value of a centrally cleared swap included in net assets is the unsettled variation margin; net variation margin receivable is reflected as an asset and net variation margin payable is reflected as a liability on the accompanying Statement of Assets and Liabilities.

Interest rate swaps are agreements to exchange cash flows based on the difference between specified interest rates applied to a notional principal amount for a specified period of time. Risks related to the use of interest rate swaps include the potential for unanticipated movements in interest or currency rates, the possible failure of a counterparty to perform in accordance with the terms of the swap agreements, potential government regulation that could adversely affect the fund’s swap investments, and potential losses in excess of the fund’s initial investment.

Credit default swaps are agreements where one party (the protection buyer) agrees to make periodic payments to another party (the protection seller) in exchange for protection against specified credit events, such as certain defaults and bankruptcies related to an underlying credit instrument, or issuer or index of such instruments. Upon occurrence of a specified credit event, the protection seller is required to pay the buyer the difference between the notional amount of the swap and the value of the underlying credit, either in the form of a net cash settlement or by paying the gross notional amount and accepting delivery of the relevant underlying credit. For credit default swaps where the underlying credit is an index, a specified credit event may affect all or individual underlying securities included in the index and will be settled based upon the relative weighting of the affected underlying security(ies) within the index. Risks related to the use of credit default swaps include the possible inability of the fund to accurately assess the current and future creditworthiness of underlying issuers, the possible failure of a counterparty to perform in accordance with the terms of the swap agreements, potential government regulation that could adversely affect the fund’s swap investments, and potential losses in excess of the fund’s initial investment.

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the volume of the fund’s activity in swaps, based on underlying notional amounts, was generally between 0% and 8% of net assets.

NOTE 4 – OTHER INVESTMENT TRANSACTIONS

Consistent with its investment objective, the fund engages in the following practices to manage exposure to certain risks and/or to enhance performance. The investment objective, policies, program, and risk factors of the fund are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus and Statement of Additional Information.

Emerging and Frontier Markets The fund invests, either directly or through investments in other T. Rowe Price funds, in securities of companies located in, issued by governments of, or denominated in or linked to the currencies of emerging and frontier market countries. Emerging markets, and to a greater extent frontier markets, generally have economic structures that are less diverse and mature, and political systems that are less stable, than developed countries. These markets may be subject to greater political, economic, and social uncertainty and differing regulatory environments that may potentially impact the fund’s ability to buy or sell certain securities or repatriate proceeds to U.S. dollars. Such securities are often subject to greater price volatility, less liquidity, and higher rates of inflation than U.S. securities. Investing in frontier markets is significantly riskier than investing in other countries, including emerging markets.

Noninvestment-Grade Debt The fund invests, either directly or through its investment in other T. Rowe Price funds, in noninvestment-grade debt, including “high yield” or “junk” bonds or leveraged loans. Noninvestment-grade debt issuers are more likely to suffer an adverse change in financial condition that would result in the inability to meet a financial obligation. The noninvestment-grade debt market may experience sudden and sharp price swings due to a variety of factors that may decrease the ability of issuers to make principal and interest payments and adversely affect the liquidity or value, or both, of such securities. Accordingly, securities issued by such companies carry a higher risk of default and should be considered speculative.

Restricted Securities The fund invests in securities that are subject to legal or contractual restrictions on resale. Prompt sale of such securities at an acceptable price may be difficult and may involve substantial delays and additional costs.

Other Purchases and sales of portfolio securities other than short-term securities aggregated $230,181,000 and $196,590,000, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2019.

NOTE 5 – FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

No provision for federal income taxes is required since the fund intends to continue to qualify as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code and distribute to shareholders all of its taxable income and gains. Distributions determined in accordance with federal income tax regulations may differ in amount or character from net investment income and realized gains for financial reporting purposes.

The fund files U.S. federal, state, and local tax returns as required. The fund’s tax returns are subject to examination by the relevant tax authorities until expiration of the applicable statute of limitations, which is generally three years after the filing of the tax return but which can be extended to six years in certain circumstances. Tax returns for open years have incorporated no uncertain tax positions that require a provision for income taxes.

Financial reporting records are adjusted for permanent book/tax differences to reflect tax character but are not adjusted for temporary differences. The permanent book/tax adjustments have no impact on results of operations or net assets and relate primarily to the character of net currency losses.

Distributions during the years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, were characterized for tax purposes as follows:

At December 31, 2019, the tax-basis cost of investments, including derivatives, and components of net assets were as follows:

The difference between book-basis and tax-basis net unrealized appreciation (depreciation) is attributable to the deferral of losses from certain derivative contracts. Tax-basis undistributed ordinary income includes interest income on troubled debt issues that has not been recognized for financial reporting purposes. The fund intends to retain realized gains to the extent of available capital loss carryforwards. Net realized capital losses may be carried forward indefinitely to offset future realized capital gains. In accordance with federal tax laws applicable to investment companies, net specified losses realized between November 1 and December 31 are not recognized for tax purposes until the subsequent year (late-year ordinary loss deferrals); however, such losses are recognized for financial reporting purposes in the year realized.

NOTE 6 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The fund is managed by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc. (Price Associates), a wholly owned subsidiary of T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. (Price Group). The investment management and administrative agreement between the fund and Price Associates provides for an all-inclusive annual fee equal to 0.70% of the fund’s average daily net assets. The fee is computed daily and paid monthly. The all-inclusive fee covers investment management services and ordinary, recurring operating expenses but does not cover interest expense; expenses related to borrowing, taxes, and brokerage; or nonrecurring extraordinary expenses.

Mutual funds, trusts, and other accounts managed by Price Associates or its affiliates (collectively, Price Funds and accounts) may invest in the fund. No Price fund or account may invest for the purpose of exercising management or control over the fund. At December 31, 2019, approximately 59% of the fund’s outstanding shares were held by Price Funds and accounts.

The fund may invest its cash reserves in certain open-end management investment companies managed by Price Associates and considered affiliates of the fund: the T. Rowe Price Government Reserve Fund or the T. Rowe Price Treasury Reserve Fund, organized as money market funds, or the T. Rowe Price Short-Term Fund, a short-term bond fund (collectively, the Price Reserve Funds). The Price Reserve Funds are offered as short-term investment options to mutual funds, trusts, and other accounts managed by Price Associates or its affiliates and are not available for direct purchase by members of the public. Cash collateral from securities lending is invested in the T. Rowe Price Short-Term Fund. The Price Reserve Funds pay no investment management fees.

The fund may participate in securities purchase and sale transactions with other funds or accounts advised by Price Associates (cross trades), in accordance with procedures adopted by the fund’s Board and Securities and Exchange Commission rules, which require, among other things, that such purchase and sale cross trades be effected at the independent current market price of the security. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the fund had no purchases or sales cross trades with other funds or accounts advised by Price Associates.

The registrant has adopted a code of ethics, as defined in Item 2 of Form N-CSR, applicable to its principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions. A copy of this code of ethics is filed as an exhibit to this Form N-CSR. No substantive amendments were approved or waivers were granted to this code of ethics during the period covered by this report.

Item 3. Audit Committee Financial Expert.

The registrant’s Board of Directors/Trustees has determined that Mr. Bruce W. Duncan qualifies as an audit committee financial expert, as defined in Item 3 of Form N-CSR. Mr. Duncan is considered independent for purposes of Item 3 of Form N-CSR.

Item 4. Principal Accountant Fees and Services.

(a) – (d) Aggregate fees billed for the last two fiscal years for professional services rendered to, or on behalf of, the registrant by the registrant’s principal accountant were as follows:

Audit fees include amounts related to the audit of the registrant’s annual financial statements and services normally provided by the accountant in connection with statutory and regulatory filings. Audit-related fees include amounts reasonably related to the performance of the audit of the registrant’s financial statements and specifically include the issuance of a report on internal controls and, if applicable, agreed-upon procedures related to fund acquisitions. Tax fees include amounts related to services for tax compliance, tax planning, and tax advice. The nature of these services specifically includes the review of distribution calculations and the preparation of Federal, state, and excise tax returns. All other fees include the registrant’s pro-rata share of amounts for agreed-upon procedures in conjunction with service contract approvals by the registrant’s Board of Directors/Trustees.

(e)(1) The registrant’s audit committee has adopted a policy whereby audit and non-audit services performed by the registrant’s principal accountant for the registrant, its investment adviser, and any entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the investment adviser that provides ongoing services to the registrant require pre-approval in advance at regularly scheduled audit committee meetings. If such a service is required between regularly scheduled audit committee meetings, pre-approval may be authorized by one audit committee member with ratification at the next scheduled audit committee meeting. Waiver of pre-approval for audit or non-audit services requiring fees of a de minimis amount is not permitted.

(2) No services included in (b) – (d) above were approved pursuant to paragraph (c)(7)(i)(C) of Rule 2-01 of Regulation S-X.

(f) Less than 50 percent of the hours expended on the principal accountant’s engagement to audit the registrant’s financial statements for the most recent fiscal year were attributed to work performed by persons other than the principal accountant’s full-time, permanent employees.

(g) The aggregate fees billed for the most recent fiscal year and the preceding fiscal year by the registrant’s principal accountant for non-audit services rendered to the registrant, its investment adviser, and any entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the investment adviser that provides ongoing services to the registrant were $3,227,000 and $2,544,000, respectively.

(h) All non-audit services rendered in (g) above were pre-approved by the registrant’s audit committee. Accordingly, these services were considered by the registrant’s audit committee in maintaining the principal accountant’s independence.

CODE OF ETHICS FOR PRINCIPAL EXECUTIVE AND
SENIOR FINANCIAL
OFFICERS OF THE PRICE FUNDS
UNDER THE SARBANES-OXLEY ACT OF 2002

I. General Statement. This Code of Ethics (the “Price Funds S-O
Code”)
has been designed to bring the Price Funds
into compliance with the applicable requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of
2002
(the “Act”) and rules promulgated by The
Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder (“Regulations”). The Price Funds
S-O Code applies solely to the Principal Executive Officer, Principal Financial
Officer, Principal Accounting Officer or Controller of, or persons performing
similar functions for, a Price Fund (whether such persons are employed by a
Price Fund or third party)
(“Covered
Officers”)
. “Price
Funds”
shall include each registered fund that is
managed, sponsored and distributed by affiliates of T. Rowe Price Group,
Inc
. (“Group”).
investment managers to the Price Funds will be referred to as the
“Price Fund Advisers.” A
list of Covered Officers is attached as
Exhibit
A
.

The Price Fund Advisers have, along with their
parent, T. Rowe Price Group, Inc.
(“Group”) also maintained a comprehensive
Code of Ethics and Conduct
(the “Group Code”) since 1972, which applies to all officers, directors and employees of
the Price Funds, Group and its affiliates.

As mandated by the Act, Group has adopted a Code
(the “Group S-O Code”), similar to the Price
Funds S-O Code, which applies solely to its principal executive and senior
financial officers. The Group S-O Code and the Price Funds S-O Code will be
referred to collectively as the
“S-O
Codes”
.

The Price Funds S-O Code has been adopted by the
Price Funds in accordance with the Act and Regulations thereunder and will be
administered in conformity with the disclosure requirements of Item 2 of Form
N-CSR. The S-O Codes are attachments to the Group Code. In many respects the S-O
Codes are supplementary to the Group Code, but the Group Code is administered
separately from the S-O Codes, as the S-O Codes are from each other.

II. Purpose of the Price Funds S-O Code.
The purpose of the Price Funds S-O Code, as mandated
by the Act and the Regulations, is to establish standards that are reasonably
designed to deter wrongdoing and to promote:

Ethical Conduct.
Honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical
handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and
professional relationships.

Disclosure. Full, fair, accurate, timely
and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Price Funds file
with, or submit to, the SEC and in other public communications made by the Price
Funds.

Compliance. Compliance with applicable
governmental laws, rules and regulations.

Reporting of
Violations.
The prompt internal reporting of
violations of the Price Funds S-O Code to an appropriate person or persons
identified in the Price Funds S-O Code.

Accountability. Accountability for
adherence to the Price Funds S-O Code.

III. Covered Officers Should Handle Ethically
Actual and Apparent Conflicts of Interest.

Overview. Each
Covered Officer owes a duty to the Price Funds to adhere to a high standard of
honesty and business ethics and should be sensitive to situations that may give
rise to actual as well as apparent conflicts of interest.

A “conflict of interest” occurs when a Covered
Officer’s private interest interferes with the interests of, or his or her
service to, the Price Funds. For example, a conflict of interest would arise if
a Covered Officer, or a member of his or her family, receives improper personal
benefits as a result of his or her position with a Price Fund.

Certain conflicts of interest covered by the
Price Funds S-O Code arise out of the relationships between Covered Officers and
the Price Funds and may already be subject to provisions regulating conflicts of
interest in the Investment Company Act of 1940
(“Investment Company Act”), the
Investment Advisers Act of 1940
(“Investment Advisers
Act”)
and the Group Code. For example, Covered
Officers may not individually engage in certain transactions (such as the
purchase or sale of securities or other property) with a Price Fund because of
their status as “affiliated persons” of a Price Fund. The compliance programs
and procedures of the Price Funds and Price Fund Advisers are designed to
prevent, or identify and correct, violations of these provisions.

Although typically not presenting an opportunity
for improper personal benefit, conflicts arise from, or as a result of, the
contractual relationship between a Price Fund and its Price Fund Adviser (and
its affiliates) of which the Covered Officers may also be officers or employees.
As a result, the Price Funds S-O Code recognizes that the Covered Officers will,
in the normal course of their duties (whether formally for the Price Funds or
for the Price Fund Advisers, or for both), be involved in establishing policies
and implementing decisions which will have different effects on these entities.
The participation of the Covered Officers in such activities is inherent in the
contractual relationship between each Price Fund and its respective Price Fund
Adviser. Such participation is also consistent with the performance by the
Covered Officers of their duties as officers of the Price Funds and, if
consistent with the provisions of the Investment Company Act and the Investment
Advisers Act, it will be deemed to have been handled ethically.

Other conflicts of interest are covered by the
Price Funds S-O Code, even if these conflicts of interest are not addressed by
or subject to provisions in the Investment Company Act and the Investment
Advisers Act.

Whenever a Covered Officer is confronted with a
conflict of interest situation where he or she is uncertain as to the
appropriate action to be taken, he or she should discuss the matter with the
Chairperson of Group’s Ethics Committee or another member of the
Committee.

Handling of Specific Types of
Conflicts.
Each Covered Officer (and close family
members) must not:

Entertainment. Accept entertainment from
any company with which any Price Fund or any Price Fund Adviser has current or
prospective business dealings, including portfolio companies, unless such
entertainment is in full compliance with the policy on entertainment as set
forth in the Group Code.

Gifts.
Accept any gifts, except as permitted by the Group
Code.

Improper Personal
Influence.
Use his or her personal influence or
personal relationships improperly to influence investment decisions, brokerage
allocations or financial reporting by the Price Funds to the detriment of any
one or more of the Price Funds.

Taking Action at
the Expense of a Price Fund.
Cause a Price Fund to
take action, or fail to take action, for the personal benefit of the Covered
Officer rather than for the benefit of one or more of the Price Funds.

Misuse of Price
Funds’ Transaction Information.
Use knowledge of
portfolio transactions made or contemplated for a Price Fund or any other
clients of the Price Fund Advisers to trade personally or cause others to trade
in order to take advantage of or avoid the market impact of such portfolio
transactions.

Outside Business
Activities.
Engage in any outside business activity
that detracts from a Covered Officer’s ability to devote appropriate time and
attention to his or her responsibilities to a Price Fund.

Service Providers.
Excluding Group and its affiliates, have any
ownership interest in, or any consulting or employment relationship with, any of
the Price Funds’ service providers, except that an ownership interest in public
companies is permitted

Receipt of
Payments.
Have a direct or indirect financial
interest in commissions, transaction charges, spreads or other payments paid by
a Price Fund for effecting portfolio transactions or for selling or redeeming
shares other than an interest (such as compensation or equity ownership) arising
from the Covered Officer’s employment by Group or any of its affiliates.

Service as a
Director or Trustee.
Serve as a director, trustee or
officer of any public or private company or a non-profit organization that
issues securities eligible for purchase by any of the Price Funds, unless
approval is obtained as required by the Group Code.

IV. Covered Officers’ Specific Obligations and
Accountabilities.

A. Disclosure
Requirements and Controls.
Each Covered Officer must
familiarize himself or herself with the disclosure requirements (Form N-1A
registration statement, proxy (Schedule 14A), shareholder reports, Forms N-CEN,
N-CSR, etc.) applicable to the Price Funds and the disclosure controls and
procedures of the Price Fund and the Price Fund Advisers.

B. Compliance with
Applicable Law.
It is the responsibility of each
Covered Officer to promote compliance with all laws, rules and regulations
applicable to the Price Funds and the Price Fund Advisers. Each Covered Officer
should, to the extent appropriate within his or her area of responsibility,
consult with other officers and employees of the Price Funds and the Price Fund
Advisers and take other appropriate steps with the goal of promoting full, fair,
accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in the reports and documents the
Price Funds file with, or submit to, the SEC, and in other public communications
made by the Price Funds.

C. Fair
Disclosure
. Each Covered Officer must not knowingly
misrepresent, or cause others to misrepresent, facts about a Price Fund to
others, whether within or outside the Price organization, including to the Price
Fund’s directors and auditors, and to governmental regulators and
self-regulatory organizations.

D. Initial and
Annual Affirmations.
Each Covered Officer must:

1. Upon adoption of
the Price Funds S-O Code (or thereafter, as applicable, upon becoming a Covered
Officer), affirm in writing that he or she has received, read, and understands
the Price Funds S-O Code.

2. Annually affirm
that he or she has complied with the requirements of the Price Funds S-O Code.

E. Reporting of
Material Violations of the Price Funds S-O Code.
If
a Covered Officer becomes aware of any material violation of the Price Funds S-O
Code or laws and governmental rules and regulations applicable to the operations
of the Price Funds, he or she must promptly report the violation
(“Report”) to the Chief Compliance Officer of the Price Funds (“CCO”).
Failure to report a material violation will be considered itself a violation of
the Price Funds S-O Code. The CCO is identified in the attached
Exhibit B.

It is the Price Funds
policy that no retaliation or other adverse action will be taken against any
Covered Officer or other employee of a Price Fund, a Price Fund Adviser or their
affiliates based upon any lawful actions of the Covered Officer or employee with
respect to a Report made in good faith.

F. Annual
Disclosures.
Each Covered Officer must report, at
least annually, all affiliations or other relationships as called for in the “Annual Compliance Certification” for T. Rowe Price Group.

V. Administration of the Price Funds S-O Code.
The Ethics Committee is responsible for
administering the Price Funds S-O Code and applying its provisions to specific
situations in which questions are presented.

A. Waivers and
Interpretations.
The Chairperson of the Ethics
Committee has the authority to interpret the Price Funds S-O Code in any
particular situation and to grant waivers where justified, subject to the
approval of the Joint Audit Committee of the Price Funds. All material
interpretations concerning Covered Officers will be reported to the Joint Audit
Committee of the Price Funds at its next meeting. Waivers, including implicit
waivers, to Covered Officers will be publicly disclosed as required in the
Instructions to N-CSR. Pursuant to the definition in the Regulations, an
implicit waiver means a Price Fund’s failure to take action within a reasonable
period of time regarding a material departure from a provision of the Price
Funds S-O Code that has been made known to an “executive officer” (as defined in
Rule 3b-7 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) of a Price Fund. An
executive officer of a Price Fund includes its president and any vice-president
in charge of a principal business unit, division or function.

B.
Violations/Investigations.
The following procedures
will be followed in investigating and enforcing the Price Funds S-O Code:

1. The CCO will take
or cause to be taken appropriate action to investigate any potential or actual
violation reported to him or her.

2. The CCO, after
consultation if deemed appropriate with Outside
Counsel
to the Price Funds, will make a recommendation to the appropriate Price Funds
Board regarding the action to be taken with regard to each material violation.
Such action could include any of the following: a letter of censure or
suspension, a fine, a suspension of trading privileges or termination of
officership or employment. In addition, the violator may be required to
surrender any profit realized (or loss avoided) from any activity that is in
violation of the Price Funds S-O Code.

VI. Amendments to the Price Funds S-O Code.
Except as to the contents of Exhibit A et

Exhibit B, the Price Funds S-O Code may not be
materially amended except in written form, which is specifically approved or
ratified by a majority vote of each Price Fund Board, including a majority of
the independent directors on each Board.

VII. Confidentiality. All reports and records prepared or maintained pursuant to the Price
Funds S-O Code will be considered confidential and shall be maintained and
protected accordingly. Except as otherwise required by law, the Price Funds S-O
Code or as necessary in connection with regulations under the Price Funds S-O
Code, such matters shall not be disclosed to anyone other than the directors of
the appropriate Price Fund Board, Outside Counsel to the Price Funds,
members of the Ethics Committee and the CCO and authorized persons on his or her
staff.
