Strategy, Benefits, Results
At Franklin Mutual Series, we focus on recognizing value that other investors might miss.
Our goal with this fund is to deliver solid, risk-adjusted returns with moderate correlation to the U.S. equity markets by investing mainly in the three categories described below:
THE QUARTERLY TENDER OFFER PROCESSMutual Recovery Fund is structured as a continuously offered, closed-end investment company due to the relatively illiquid nature of many of the fund’s investments. Investors can purchase shares on any day the markets are open, but shares aren’t redeemed daily. Instead, Mutual Recovery Fund offers to buy back 5%–25% of the outstanding shares each quarter during the tender offer period. The fund may suspend or postpone a tender offer subject to approval by the fund’s board.
