Fund Description

The T. Rowe Price Balanced Fund (RPBAX) is a classic balanced fund that features exposure to both stocks and bonds. RPBAX holds only domestic equities and bonds in a 65/35 split. The extra equities weighting is meant to allow RPBAX to slightly outperform 60/40 funds over the long term. The fund is actively managed and physically owns the securities rather than using a fund of funds approach.

As a low-cost option for owning both stocks and bonds, RPBAX provides a great way to build out your core portfolio. The fund is internally managed by T. Rowe Price.
