What are Multi-Asset Funds?

There’s more to diversification than just combining bonds and stocks. A multi-asset fund offers exposure to a broad number of asset classes, often offering a level of diversification typically associated with institutional investing. Multi-asset funds may invest in a number of traditional equity and fixed income strategies, index-tracking funds, financial derivatives as well as alternative investments. This diversity allows portfolio managers to potentially balance risk with reward and deliver steady, long-term returns for investors, particularly in volatile markets.


Multi-asset portfolios can help investors address complex risk management and investment challenges by combining three critical disciplines of investment management into a single portfolio: strategic asset allocation, tactical asset allocation and manager & strategy research.

Strategic Asset Allocation

Grounded in capital market expectations and ongoing analysis of global investment themes.

Tactical Asset Allocation

Nimble short term tilts that capitalize on opportunities or manage risks, based upon the strategic disciplined discussion cycle of our global investment committee.

Manager & Strategy Research

Among hundreds of potential opportunities, a dedicated team studies and monitors individual strategies, including Franklin Templeton Funds, third party funds as well as ETFs.
