Franklin Templeton Emerging Markets Equity

Founded in 1940, Templeton’s investment philosophy is built upon a disciplined, yet flexible, long-term value-oriented approach. As it is applied to emerging markets investing, it is based on three tenets that we believe are critical to successful long-term investing: value, patience, and bottom-up stock selection.
