As one of the first global asset management firms to establish local asset management capabilities in India (1993) and in South Korea (1997), Franklin Templeton is a pioneer in local asset management. Our goal is to manage each local business on a global scale, focusing on local investing, benchmarks and client needs, while drawing on the deep resources and global presence of the broader Franklin Templeton organization. Each local office (or strategic alliance) employs a truly "local" investment process that gives managers flexibility in investment decisions.
Since 1993, Franklin Templeton has developed or invested in local asset management capabilities — local portfolio managers investing locally — in several countries, including:
• South Korea
• China (joint venture)
• Vietnam (joint venture)
• Middle East/North Africa
