T. Rowe Price Continental European Equity loses Elite Rating

T. Rowe Price has today announced that Dean Tenerelli, manager of the T. Rowe Price Continental European Equity fund since its launch in 2009, is to leave the company at the end of the year.

Toby Mueller will become co- manager on 1 July 2020 and will work alongside Dean for a handover period before becoming sole manager on 1 October 2020.

Commenting on the change, Darius McDermott, managing director of FundCalibre, said: “Dean has been an excellent fund manager and it is a shame he is leaving, but we wish him well with whatever he decides to do next.

“Unfortunately, the fund will have to lose its Elite Rating with Dean’s departure. However, we will be meeting with Toby, who has a short but good track record on another European equity fund, and we will decide whether or not to award it an Elite Radar at our annual July investment committee meeting.”

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. However, the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you.
