T. Rowe Price Closes New Horizons And Small-Cap Stock Funds To New Investors

BALTIMORE, Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


T. Rowe Price (NASDAQ-GS: TROW) announced that it closed its New Horizons and Small-Cap Stock Funds—along with similar portfolios for institutional clients—to maintain the integrity of the funds' investment strategies and to protect the interests of existing shareholders. While the funds are closed to new investors, they will continue to accept additional investments from existing shareholders and direct rollovers from qualified retirement plans into new IRAs offered through T. Rowe Price.

The New Horizons Fund, one of the first funds to invest exclusively in small-cap growth stocks, was first closed near a market peak in October 1967 and has reopened and closed several times since then. Since last reopening in May 2002, the fund's assets have risen by nearly $11 billion and stood at $15.5 billion as of November 30, 2013.

The Small-Cap Stock Fund, which is also one of the oldest funds to invest in small-cap stocks, was first closed to new investors in March 2004. With a total of $10.2 billion in assets as of November 30, 2013, the assets of Small-Cap Stock Fund have risen by $6.9 billion since the fund reopened to new investors in April 2009.    


Bill Stromberg, head of equity for T. Rowe Price

"Our number one goal is to deliver excellent performance for clients. Consequently, we have from time to time closed or restricted investments in funds when, in our judgment, the size or pace of cash flow impairs the portfolio manager's ability to invest effectively on behalf of existing shareholders. We have a long history of managing growth to protect performance, and that is why we have taken this step now with these funds."


The funds' prospectuses, which are available at or by calling 1-800-541-8803, include investment objectives, risks, fees, expenses, and other information you should read and consider carefully before investing. T. Rowe Price Investment Services, Inc., Distributor.

Small companies tend to have less experienced management, unpredictable earnings growth, and limited product lines, which can cause their share prices to fluctuate more than those of larger firms.
