Franklin Templeton Company Overview
Franklin Templeton Investments is a global investment manager. At the core of our business are multiple world-class investment management groups – Franklin, Templeton and Mutual Series – each operating independently and offering their distinct perspectives to financial advisors and their clients.
This multiple-manager structure allows us to offer exceptional, specialized expertise across key asset classes and investment styles, supported by a single global platform. Combined they offer investors the opportunity for true diversification, and as we say, "the expertise of many with the strength of one."
While each investment group adheres to its own time-tested investment philosophy, a common thread is their commitment to staying true to their time-tested disciplines, regardless of short-term market cycles.

A Unique Perspective
Franklin Templeton has a unique perspective that comes from the size, scope, experience and makeup of our organization and our rich history of over 65 years in the business. This perspective enables us to see things in a different light and to spot investment opportunities others may miss. Backed by Franklin Templeton’s extensive resources and global reach, each of our investment management groups can generate innovative investment ideas that turn high-quality information into opportunities for our clients.
Our headquarters are located just south of San Francisco, in San Mateo, California, and we have offices in 35 countries around the world and offer investment solutions and services in more than 150.
A Broad Range of Investment Solutions
The Franklin, Templeton and Mutual Series investment groups were each founded more than half a century ago and offer specialized investment focuses from tax-free income to core equity to global investing.
Franklin Templeton manages investments for individuals, institutions, pension plans, trusts, partnerships and other clients globally. We offer investment solutions for U.S. investors including mutual funds, retirement savings vehicles and 529 college savings plans.
We seek to consistently provide investors with exceptional risk-adjusted returns over the long term, as well as the reliable, accurate and personal service that has helped Franklin Templeton become one of the most trusted names in financial services.
Our mutual funds are available through financial advisors because we believe investors can benefit from ongoing professional advice. The expertise of a financial advisor can prove invaluable in helping investors define their needs and by recommending investments suitable to their individual financial objectives.
