INVESTMENT APPROACH. Our approach to managing investments is rooted in fundamental research, distinguished by discipline, and carried out by experienced professionals.
Research is the lifeblood of our investment organizations
We believe that fundamental, proprietary research drives value-added, active management. To put this belief into practice, we maintain a powerful global research platform that includes interconnected teams of research analysts.
It starts with bottom-up analysis. One hundred eighty five specialized analysts across the globe focus on finding opportunities for our clients. These are bright and capable professionals, driven to find insights—both qualitative and quantitative—that support investment recommendations and, ultimately, decisions.
But what makes this platform so effective is the culture that supports it—one in which ideas are shared and debated, and knowledge is transferred across geographies and sectors. The result: Ideas translate into well-informed investment decisions.
Discipline has distinguished our approach for over seven decades
T. Rowe Price has been managing assets for clients since 1937. Through all types of market environments, we have kept our heads down, fine-tuned our process, and focused on long-term results.
Consistency is a hallmark of our investment process. By adhering to stated investment objectives and style, regardless of market conditions or fashion, we help ensure the long-term integrity of client portfolios.
We are also keenly focused on risk management. Our professionals assess risk and potential rewards at the security and portfolio level for all strategies. All portfolios are managed to provide long-term reward commensurate with risk accepted.
A seasoned investment team means continuity for our clients
There is no substitute for experience. T. Rowe Price portfolio managers have an average of 19 years' investment experience and 13 years' tenure with the firm.
Because of this individual expertise and collective experience, we are able to keep rapidly evolving markets in historical perspective. We are able to hone our investment approach through changing economic conditions. And we are able to thoughtfully focus on our ultimate goal—consistent, competitive performance for our clients.
Fixed Income Capabilities. We focus on performance and risk management, and helping you focus on your success.
T. Rowe Price is an established leader in fixed income investing, with a dedicated department of 152 experienced professionals. We focus on producing consistent results through careful scrutiny of individual bonds and economic conditions. This is the same attention to research and risk management that inspired our success as an equity manager. To maintain our independent perspective, we depend on a global team of analysts for fundamental investment research.

I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time
Think you'll struggle to find an Asset Manager that treats you as well as T. Rowe Price in terms of pay, work/life balance, perks and benefits.
As everyone at T. Rowe will tell you, the legacy technology is really starting to show its age - although there's a big push in getting this changed.
Advice to Management
Be mindful of career progression of juniors.
Behavioral style. Two interviewers. Five questions total. Took approximately an hour. There was an overview ahead of time so you’d want to be there when the appointment says and not be late or you’d miss it
