Templeton Euroland Fund

Franklin Templeton Investment Funds

Summary of Fund Objective

The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity and debt securities of European Monetary Union member country governments and companies with at least 75% of its total assets in equity securities issued by companies which have their head office in the European Union.

Disciplined ‘value’ investment approach. Templeton's investment style is built upon a disciplined, yet flexible, long-term approach to value-oriented investing based on the principles established by Sir John Templeton. Portfolios are structured completely from a stock selection orientation; asset allocation decisions are residual within the process.

Proven investment process. The 5 step process consists of identifying undervalued stocks, conducting in-depth fundamental analysis, having a team approval of stock ideas, constructing portfolios from the approved ‘bargain list’ and ongoing portfolio monitoring & risk management.

An experienced management team. The Templeton Global Equity Group, is composed of experienced portfolio managers/analysts located in Fort Lauderdale (Florida), Toronto, Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne and Nassau.

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 located in or doing significant business in euroland countries. 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, liquidity risk.
