Franklin Templeton Investments
Gain From Our Perspective®
Franklin Templeton’s distinct multi-manager structure combines the specialized expertise of three world-class investment management groups— Franklin, Templeton and Mutual Series.
Each of our portfolio management groups operates autonomously, relying on its own research and staying true to the unique investment disciplines that underlie its success.
Franklin. Founded in 1947, Franklin is a recognized leader in fixed income investing and also brings expertise in growth- and value-style U.S. equity investing.
Templeton. Founded in 1940, Templeton pioneered international investing and, in 1954, launched what has become the industry’s oldest global fund. Today, with offices in over 25 countries, Templeton offers investors a truly global perspective.
Mutual Series. Founded in 1949, Mutual Series is dedicated to a unique style of value investing, searching aggressively for opportunity among what it believes are undervalued stocks, as well as arbitrage situations and distressed securities.
Because our management groups work independently and adhere to different investment approaches, Franklin, Templeton and Mutual Series funds typically have distinct portfolios. That’s why our funds can be used to build truly diversified allocation plans covering every major asset class.
At Franklin Templeton Investments, we seek to consistently provide investors with exceptional risk-adjusted returns over the long term, as well as the reliable, accurate and personal service that has helped us become one of the most trusted names in financial services.
