Investment Policy

Templeton Euroland Fund, sub-fund of the Franklin Templeton Investment Funds SICAV organized under the laws of Luxembourg, aims to increase the value of its investments over the medium to long term.
The Fund invests mainly in equity securities issued by companies of any size located in, or doing significant business in, countries that have adopted the euro as their national currency (i.e., countries of the European Monetary Union).
The investment team uses in-depth analysis to select individual securities that it believes are undervalued and will provide the best opportunities for increased value over the long term. The Fund invests at least 75% of its total assets in equity securities issued by companies that have their head office in the European Union.
You may request the sale of your shares on any Luxembourg business day.

For an investor :

  • Capital appreciation by investing in undervalued equity securities issued by the member countries of the European Monetary Union.
  • Investments for the medium to long term.

But…

The main risks for the Sub-Fund are :

  • Market risk:Stocks and/or financial instruments are impacted by various factors. These include, but are not limited to, the development of the financial market, the economic development of issuers of stocks and/or financial instruments who are themselves affected by the general world economic situation and the economic and political conditions in each country. This risk is viewed as medium.
  • Non-performance risk: The return realized during a specific period may be positive or negative, depending on the fund's investment strategy. The non-performance risk is strongly linked to the market risk.
  • Capital risk: No guarantee is provided as to the recovery of your initial investment.
  • Liquidity risk: the risk that arises when adverse market conditions affect the ability to sell assets when necessary. Reduced liquidity may have a negative impact on the price of the assets.

The occurrence of any of these risks may have an impact on the net asset value of your portfolio.

Net Asset Value

The net asset value is calculated in Belgium each bank working day. The net asset value is published every public banking business day in Belgium in the financial press, as well as on the BeAMA website (http://www.beama.be/en/nav). It is also available at the Management Company’s registered address and over the counter from your financial services provider.

A swing price may be applied. Swing pricing aims to reduce the dilution effect brought about when significant operations within a sub- fund compel its manager to buy or sell its underlying assets. These transactions give rise to transaction fees and taxes that have an effect on the fund’s value, as well as on all its investors. Where swing pricing is applied, the sub-fund’s net asset value is adjusted by a particular amount when the capital flow exceeds a certain threshold (the swing factor). This amount is designed to offset expected transaction fees resulting from the difference between incoming and outgoing capital. Swing pricing is only used on rare occasions, if at all.
