Strategy, Benefits, Results

Strategy

  • The fund is designed to seek out the maximum long-term returns consistent with a lower level of risk.
  • The fund's manager will actively allocate the fund's assets to equity and fixed income investments, seeking to construct portfolios the fund’s manager believes are the best combinations of Franklin, Templeton and Mutual Series funds to meet the fund’s goals.
  • Evaluating multiple factors such as regional exposure, market capitalizations, investment style, credit quality and duration, the objective is to create a portfolio of funds displaying a history of more consistent performance over the long term with low relative correlations among themselves.

Benefits

  • Single-Fund Solution. Access to our world class investment management groups – Franklin, Templeton and Mutual Series – in one investment vehicle.

Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • While an asset allocation plan can be a valuable tool to help reduce overall volatility, all investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Typically, the more aggressive the investment, or the greater the potential return, the more risk involved.
  • Generally, investors should be comfortable with some fluctuation in the value of their investments, especially over the short term.
  • 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 a fund adjust to a rise in interest rates, that fund’s share price may decline.
  • Foreign investing carries additional risks such as currency and market volatility and political or social instability, risks which are heightened in developing countries.
  • Because this fund invests in underlying funds, which may engage in a variety of investment strategies involving certain risks, Franklin Templeton Conservative Allocation Fund may be subject to those same risks.
  • These risks are described in the fund’s prospectus. Investors should consult their financial advisor for help selecting the appropriate fund of funds, or fund combination, based on an evaluation of their investment objectives and risk tolerance.
