Fund Description

The fund seeks capital appreciation, which may occasionally be short term, with income as a secondary goal. Its strategy is focused on undervalued mid- and large-cap equity securities, which may include foreign securities and, to a lesser extent, distressed securities and merger arbitrage.

Strategy Statement

"Since 1949, Franklin Mutual Shares Fund has remained committed to an investment strategy with a simple mission: buy a dollar’s worth of value for as little as possible. "
