Who we are
Franklin Templeton Investments Australia Limited, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Franklin Resources, Inc. [NYSE:BEN], one of the world’s largest asset management groups with more than AUD $966bn in assets under management on behalf of investors in over 170 countries worldwide (as at 30 June 2017).
Franklin Templeton Investments, since our founding more than 70 years ago, has adhered to the tenets of prudence and sound money management put forth by our namesake, Benjamin Franklin. We’ve remained committed to investment excellence through all market cycles, taking a long-term view and managing risk as vigilantly as we seek reward.
Franklin Templeton Investments established a presence in Australia in 1987 and currently has offices in Sydney and Melbourne, offering institutional and retail clients access to specialised expertise across key asset classes, ranging from global equity and fixed income to Australian equity.
The business acquired Balanced Equity Management in 2011, providing clients with access to a specialist Australian equity manager with a long-term track record of managing large cap Australian equity portfolios dating back to 1988.
At Franklin Templeton Investments, we are dedicated to one goal: delivering exceptional asset management to our shareholders.
By bringing together multiple, world-class investment teams in a single firm, we are able to offer specialised expertise across styles and asset classes, all supported by the strength and resources of one of the world’s largest asset managers.
This has helped us to become a trusted partner to individual and institutional investors across the globe.
At the core of our firm, you will find multiple independent investment teams, each with a focused area of expertise, from traditional to alternative strategies and multi-asset solutions. Because our portfolio groups operate autonomously, their strategies can be combined to deliver true style and asset class diversification.
All of our investment teams share a common commitment to excellence grounded in rigorous, fundamental research and robust, disciplined risk management. Decade after decade, our consistent, research-driven processes have helped Franklin Templeton to earn an impressive record of strong, long-term results.
