Franklin Gold and Precious Metals Fund

Fund Description

The fund seeks capital appreciation by investing at least 80% of its net assets in the securities of companies around the world that mine, process or deal in gold or other precious metals such as silver, platinum and palladium. The fund has a secondary goal of current income.

Strategy Statement

"We think precious metals are attractive because they are a hard asset that's not tied to a particular country or financial system, potentially providing stability in times of economic uncertainty. "
