Types of Funds Offered
Equity Fund: Franklin equity funds are designed to generate high yields by investing in large cap companies. When they invest in stock markets, these assets are subjected to market fluctuations based on the stocks’ performance. While the daily movement might be substantial, the stocks do offer great returns if held for a longer duration like 8-12 years. Since these generate better returns, risk takers who want to generate income at a faster rate find it a viable source of investment. Franklin India Equity Fund and Franklin India Bluechip Fund are some of the equity funds you can find.
Debt Fund: Investors who don’t want to take the risk of a volatile stock market can opt for Franklin Templeton debt funds. This way they can tap into safer forms of assets like money market instruments or floating rate debt. As a result, they get the assurance of wealth creation that grows steadily. Some of the funds here include Franklin India Banking & PSU Debt Fund and Franklin India Dynamic Accrual Fund.
Hybrid Fund: Franklin MF hybrid funds are designed to have a smart fund allocation between equity and debt. This way, investors get to patriate in stock trading in their own small way, but still have the assurance of the government securities forming a good part of the portfolio. You can choose from different funds like Franklin India Debt Hybrid Fund, Franklin India Dynamic PE Ratio Fund Of Funds, and Franklin India Equity Savings Fund.
International Fund: If you need to invest in stocks of foreign companies, a Franklin Templeton international fund would be a great option. Some popular options from Franklin Templeton include Franklin India Feeder - Franklin European Growth Fund and Franklin India Feeder - Franklin U.U. Opportunities Fund.
Liquid Fund: Franklin MF liquid schemes can be immediately surrendered to access the money need for emergency or urgent purposes. The absence of a lock-in period makes it a preferred alternative for many investors.
