What are Balanced Funds?

A balanced fund primarily invests in a mixture of both equities and fixed income securities. Unlike life-cycle or target date funds, balanced funds generally stick to a relatively fixed asset mix. Balanced funds are designed for investors seeking a mixture of income and capital appreciation, with potentially less volatility, all in one fund.


We utilize a flexible and diversified approach, searching across various asset classes including equities, fixed income and convertibles.

Our bottom-up investment process is driven by the fundamental research of Franklin Templeton’s equity and fixed income sector analysts. By combining the expertise from both groups, we can construct a holistic view of a company’s capital structure.
