There are a number of different types of alternative funds, each with their own characteristics and level of risk.
We offer investors broad alternative investment capabilities spanning hedge strategies and real assets through a multi-boutique structure. We are focused on seeking new, uncorrelated active return sources by following disciplined, risk-controlled investment processes.
Each portfolio team within our alternatives group is comprised of specialists who are leaders in their disciplines, backed by the strength of Franklin Templeton's global operating platform. We believe that our research-driven global perspective and a focus on active risk management can further enhance the potential portfolio benefits of alternative investments. Our teams' practices are complemented by the firm's centralized risk management framework, providing improved risk transparency.
