Franklin Equity Group

Franklin Equity Group, which launched its first funds in 1948, offers in-depth expertise in managing global, regional and sector specific equity strategies across the style and market-capitalization spectrum. We believe that attractive risk-adjusted returns can be achieved over time by combining a collaborative team-oriented approach with disciplined, bottom-up fundamental research.


Our investments in high-quality companies with the potential for long term sustainable growth can provide significant opportunities for investors. We focus on companies across the full global opportunity set that meet our criteria of:

  • Growth. Focus on companies with the potential to produce sustainable earnings and cash flow growth.
  • Quality. Seek high-quality companies with strong management teams and financial strength.
  • Valuation. Assess whether the growth opportunity is already reflected in the stock price.


By combining the investment philosophies and expertise of both Franklin Equity Group and Franklin Templeton Fixed Income Group, our hybrid/balanced funds provide an opportunity to participate in the growth potential of the equities market while also seeking current income and reduced overall risk.
