Presentation:
"Investing in Science and Technology."

Successful technology investing requires a manager to recognise and capture the value that is being driven by technology innovation. Industries around the world are increasingly obligated to embrace new technologies to compete, reach customers and empower their employees to move the businesses forward.
With things moving at such a rapid pace and the value emanating from what is going to happen rather than what is currently happening, it requires thought leadership and an ability to try to predict the future areas of growth.
The Science and Technology strategy at T. Rowe Price is focussed on those enabling technologies and the wider beneficiaries of that innovation.
