Fund Description

The T. Rowe Price Latin America Fund (PRLAX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that focuses on emerging markets, specifically Latin and South America. This includes stocks domiciled in Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela and Peru. The fund’s managers use a variety of analysis metrics to determine undervalued stocks that have above-average earnings growth within the emerging-market region. There are no market capitalization restrictions nor any sector requirements for the fund. Although, traditionally the fund has been heavy in natural resources.

Given its narrow focus on Latin and South America, PRLAX is best suited as a satellite position or core position only when paired with an emerging Asia fund. The fund is managed by T. Rowe Price.
