Templeton Global Climate Change Fund

Franklin Templeton Investment Funds

Summary of Fund Objective

The Fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in equity securities of companies throughout the world which recognise and adapt to the long-term financial risks and opportunities presented by climate change and resource depletion.

Investing in a sustainable future. In our view, companies which exhibit superior practices in identifying, adapting and providing solutions to the consequences of climate change may have a potential long-term competitive advantage over their industry peers.
An active approach to climate change investing. We favour companies providing low carbon solutions, companies transitioning to a low carbon economy and companies that are resilient to climate change. We encourage company preparedness through proactive engagement and shareholder voting.

Steady approach to long-term investing. The Fund managers seek to identify companies that, in their view, are trading at the greatest discount to future intrinsic value. This patient, disciplined perspective is essential to capitalising on long-term value opportunities presented by the transition to a lower carbon future.
A clear philosophy, consistently applied. The Templeton Global Equity Group utilises a disciplined, repeatable process that has been tested over seven decades. The Fund's managers apply this consistent, long-term approach based on the three timeless principles of investing: value, patience and bottom-up stock picking.

What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in equity securities of companies throughout the world which recognise and adapt to the long-term financial risks and opportunities presented by climate change and resource depletion. Such securities have historically been subject to significant price movements that may occur suddenly due to market or company-specific factors. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate significantly over relatively short time periods.
  • Other significant risks include: currency risk, emerging markets risk, liquidity risk and derivatives risk.
