Fund Description

Strategy Statement
Portfolio Managers
T. Anthony Coffey
"As a result of the strategies utilized by its underlying funds, we believe the fund provides a diversified approach across investing styles, offering potential for long-term growth."

Strategy, Benefits, Results


  • We invest in four underlying funds—Franklin Flex Cap Growth Fund, Franklin Growth Fund, Templeton Growth Fund and Franklin Mutual Shares Fund.
  • These underlying funds form a portfolio consisting of both growth- and value-style stocks from around the world across a range of market capitalizations.


  • Diversification. We typically seek broad industry and country exposures for added diversification opportunities.
  • Low Common Holdings. The distinct investment approaches of the underlying managers generally leads to a low number of holdings common to all three underlying funds.
  • Automatic Rebalancing. We maintain consistent exposures to distinct investment strategies throughout changing market environments.

Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Because the Franklin Corefolio Allocation Fund invests in underlying funds that may engage in a variety of investment strategies involving certain risks, this fund of funds may be subject to those same risks.
  • Stock prices fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and dramatically, due to factors affecting individual companies, particular industries or sectors, or general market conditions.
  • Foreign investing carries additional risks such as currency and market volatility, and political or social instability; risks which are heightened in developing countries.
  • Smaller or relatively new or unseasoned companies can be particularly sensitive to changing economic conditions, and their prospects for growth are less certain than those of larger, more established companies.
  • Value securities may not increase in price as anticipated or may decline further in value.
  • These and other risks, including investments in specialized industry sectors such as the technology sector, which has been among the most volatile in the market, are discussed in the fund’s prospectus.
