The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), which came into effect on 1 November 2007, represents an overhaul and expansion of the EU single financial services market legislation. Web and marketing documents issued after 1 November 2007 comply with the marketing requirements of the Market in Financial Instruments Directive.
MiFID prescribes new and more extensive requirements to improve and harmonise investor protection throughout the European Economic Area.
Franklin Templeton Investments' commitment to be MiFID compliant has involved reviewing and adjusting existing arrangements as well as developing new processes to satisfy, amongst other things, the following MiFID requirements:
MiFID requires we implement an order execution policy which outlines the steps we take to achieve the best possible result when we deal with a client order.
Conflicts of Interest
MiFID requires we implement a conflicts of interest policy which outlines the steps we take to identify and manage any conflicts of interest, which may arise between you and ourselves or between you and other clients.
The Capital Requirements Directive (“CRD”) is the framework for implementing Basel II in the European Union. Basel II implements a risk sensitive framework for the calculation of regulatory capital. In the UK, the Financial Conduct Authority implemented the CRD in its regulations.
CRD consists of three pillars, Pillar 1 the minimum capital requirements, Pillar 2 the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (“ICAAP”) and Pillar 3. The aim of Pillar 3 disclosure is to promote the transparency of institutions and to provide information to stakeholders on the solvency, risks and risk exposures with which the institutions must comply.
The purpose of this Remuneration Policy Statement is to provide investors with details of the FTFML Remuneration Policy in accordance with Directive 2009/65/EU which applies to any UCITS Funds under its management.
The below disclosure has been prepared to comply with the Capital Requirements (country-by-country) Reporting Regulations 2013, implemented by Article 89 of the Capital Requirements Directive IV. The aim of the disclosure is to increase transparency regarding the activities of institutions and is an important element of the corporate responsibility of institutions towards stakeholders and society.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues can have a material impact on the value of companies and securities. Examples of such factors include natural resource use and scarcity, hazardous waste disposal, product safety, employee health and safety practices, and shareholder rights issues. We believe these issues should be considered alongside traditional financial measures to provide a more comprehensive view of the value, risk and return potential of an investment.
In the event that Franklin Templeton is unable to meet its liabilities, you may be entitled to compensation under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Currently, the maximum level of compensation an investor can receive from the Scheme for such claim against the firm is £50,000 per person per firm. Further information on the scheme can be found at:
