Fund Description

The T. Rowe Price New Era Fund (PRNEX) is an actively managed fund that seeks long-term capital appreciation and inflation protection by investing in a portfolio of natural resource stocks. Natural resource stocks can include metals and mining companies, oil and gas firms, and chemical, agriculture or utility companies. New Era will also add some exposure to non-natural resource stocks, benefiting from higher inflation.

Expenses for PRNEX are low. Given its sector mandate, the fund is best used as a satellite position in a broad equity portfolio. The fund is internally managed by T. Rowe. Price.
