The fund seeks both income and capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio of global bonds and equities, and offers a dynamic, bottom-up allocation process. The fund normally invests at least 25% of its assets in fixed income senior securities and at least 25% of its assets in equity securities. Templeton Global Macro and the Templeton Global Equity Group meet regularly to determine the allocation mix reflective of where the teams are finding what they consider to be the most attractive opportunities.

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. Special risks are associated with foreign investing, including currency fluctuations, economic instability and political developments; investments in emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors. Stock prices fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and dramatically, due to factors affecting individual companies, particular industries or sectors, or general market conditions. Bond prices generally move in the opposite direction of interest rates. Thus, as the prices of bonds in the fund adjust to a rise in interest rates, the fund's share price may decline. The risks associated with higher-yielding, lower-rated debt securities include higher risk of default and loss of principal. To the extent the fund focuses on particular countries, regions, industries, sectors or types of investment from time to time, it may be subject to greater risks of adverse developments in such areas of focus than a fund that invests in a wider variety of countries, regions, industries, sectors or investments. The fund's investment in derivative securities, such as swaps, financial futures and option contracts, and use of foreign currency techniques involve special risks as such may not achieve the anticipated benefits and/or may result in losses to the fund. The markets for particular securities or types of securities are or may become relatively illiquid. Reduced liquidity will have an adverse impact on the security's value and on the fund's ability to sell such securities when necessary to meet the fund's liquidity needs or in response to a specific market event. The fund's risk considerations are discussed in the prospectus.
