Thesis

Why are we adding to our position in TROW?

With the stock market continuing to decline in the first half of 2022, TROW’s share price has been hit hard. While the economic conditions do represent strong head winds for the company in the near future, we are confident in the long term prospects of the company and the stability of its dividend payout.

Therefore, we view the current weakness in share price as an opportunity to build our position in the company.
