Franklin Limited Duration Income Trust

Fund Description

The fund seeks to provide high, current income, with a secondary objective of capital appreciation by investing primarily in high yield corporate bonds, floating rate corporate loans and mortgage- and other asset-backed securities.

Strategy Statement

"The fund’s goal is to provide relatively high yield while maintaining a relatively low correlation to interest rates. Top-down sector allocation and bottom up security selection drive portfolio construction."

Investing In The Fund

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. Interest rate movements and mortgage prepayments will affect the fund’s share price and yield. Bond prices generally move in the opposite direction of interest rates. As the prices of bonds in a fund adjust to a rise in interest rates, the fund’s share price may decline. Investments in lower rated bonds include higher risk of default and loss of principal. The fund is actively managed but there is no guarantee that the manager’s investment decisions will produce the desired results.
