What are Alternatives Funds?

Potentially attractive for investors seeking to reduce volatility and improve returns in their portfolios, alternatives funds invest in a variety of strategies and asset classes, looking to provide risk and return profiles that have lower correlations to traditional asset classes (such as equities, fixed income, and cash).


We offer investors broad alternatives investment capabilities spanning hedge strategies, real assets, and private equity and debt through a multi-boutique structure. We are focused on seeking new, uncorrelated active return sources by following disciplined, risk-controlled investment processes.

Innovative Thinking from Specialized Expertise

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.

A Rigorous Approach to Alternatives Investing

We believe that our research-driven global perspective and a focus on active risk management can further enhance the potential portfolio benefits of alternatives investments.

Sound Risk Management

Our teams’ practices are complemented by the firm’s centralized risk management framework, providing improved risk transparency. This helps us pursue the desired return profiles in the most efficient manner.
