Franklin Mutual European Fund

Franklin Templeton Investment Funds

Summary of Fund Objective

The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing principally in equity securities of companies incorporated or having their principal activities in European countries that the investment manager believes are available at prices less than their intrinsic value. The Fund may also seek to invest in the securities of companies involved in mergers, consolidations, liquidations and reorganisations. To a lesser extent, the Fund may also purchase debt securities of companies involved in reorganisation or financial restructuring. The Fund may also invest up to 10% of its net assets in non-European securities.

What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in equity and equity-related securities of companies located in or doing significant business in European countries. Such securities have historically been subject to significant price movements that may occur suddenly due to market or company-specific factors. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate considerably over time.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations. Derivative Instruments risk: the risk of loss in an instrument where a small change in the value of the underlying investment may have a larger impact on the value of such instrument. Derivatives may involve additional liquidity, credit and counterparty risks.
