Linedata (NYSE Euronext: LIN), the global solutions provider dedicated to the investment management and credit industries, today announced that Linedata has been selected by T. Rowe Price, a premier global investment manager, to deliver comprehensive oversight to enhance T. Rowe Price’s Net Asset Value (NAV) across its extensive range of investment offerings.
Growing complexity and regulatory change in today’s financial markets are increasing the need for asset managers to seek robust, automated solutions for oversight of externally generated NAVs. T.

Linedata Navquest also has the ability to highlight the specific NAV component which may be responsible for a discrepancy, supporting remediation.
T. Rowe Price joins a growing community of leading investment managers that are enhancing their approach to fund oversight and transparency. Cathy Mathews, Treasurer of the T. Rowe Price Funds, said, “NAV Accuracy is of paramount importance. Selection of Linedata Navquest reflects our commitment to provide accurate NAVs to our customers by implementing an automated, scalable tool that will allow us to target risks and continuously refine our oversight processes.”
