There’s more to diversification than just bonds and stocks—a multi-asset Fund offers exposure to a broad number of asset classes as well as diversification within asset classes. We believe this is key to providing steady long-term returns for investors in volatile markets.
Franklin Diversified Funds invest in a number of traditional equity and fixed income funds or index-tracking funds, financial derivatives as well as alternative investments such as commodities and infrastructure. This diversity potentially allows portfolio managers to balance risk with potential reward in each portfolio and deliver positive long-term returns for investors.
The Funds are managed by Franklin Templeton Multi-Asset Solutions, a team with more than 50 multi-asset experts with expertise in:
- strategic asset allocation and tactical positioning,
- fundamental and quantitative research and
- active implementation and integrated risk management
The hallmark of the team’s approach is a central forum—the Investment Strategy and Research Committee—which generates a top-down view across asset classes and regions, and connects the insights of the global investment teams at Franklin Templeton.
