Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

Templeton Emerging Markets Bond Fund (the “Fund”) aims to maximise total investment return by achieving an increase in the value of its investments, earning income and realising currency gains over the medium to long term. The Fund invests mainly in: debt securities of any quality issued by governments, government-related entities and corporations located in developing or emerging markets The Fund can invest to a lesser extent in: debt securities from outside of developing or emerging markets that may be affected by financial or economic developments in developing or emerging markets (limited to 33% of assets) debt securities of supranational entities, such as the European Investment Bank mortgage- and asset-backed securities Mainland China through the Bond Connect or directly (limited to 10% of assets) The Fund can use derivatives for hedging, efficient portfolio management and/or investment purposes which are used as an active investment management instrument to gain exposure to markets. The flexible and opportunistic nature of the strategy allows the investment team to take advantage of different market environments. By using in-depth economic, country and security research including detailed risk analysis, Franklin Templeton’s large team of fixed income specialists seek to take advantage of these differences by identifying and investing in fixed income securities with the strongest potential for income, capital growth and currency gain around the world. In making investment decisions, the investment team thoroughly researches various factors that may affect bond prices and currency values. The Fund may distribute income gross of expenses. Whilst this might allow more income to be distributed, it may also have the effect of reducing capital. You may request the sale of your shares on any Luxembourg business day. For the distribution share class shown in this document, dividend income is distributed to shareholders.
