Factors to Consider before Investing in Franklin Templeton Mutual Funds

You must keep the following factors in mind before starting with Franklin Mutual Fund Investment.

  • Investment goals

    Know your financial goals clearly before starting to invest in Franklin Templeton. It is important for you to decide whether you are looking for long or short-term financial growth. 

    If your goal is short-term, choose liquid funds or short-duration funds for regular income. If you are looking to grow your wealth for retirement or saving money for a new home, you should choose something like small cap funds or index funds.

  • Investment period

    It is also important to know for how long you can stay invested in a mutual fund to achieve your investment goals. Knowing this allows you to set your investment goal straight and devise a strategy accordingly. 

    If your current finances do not allow huge investments, you can go for SIP and invest for a longer period. This will allow you to earn returns while managing your ongoing expenses without much trouble. 

  • Fund performance

    Before selecting a mutual fund to invest in, consider conducting thorough research on the fund's historic performances over different time frames. 

    This will help you make an informed decision regarding which fund is better for your finances. On our app, you can study each Franklin Mutual Fund scheme's performance over a period of 1, 3 and 5 years. 

    You can also use the INDmoney Franklin Templeton SIP calculator to analyse your investment returns instantly. This tool will display your maturity value along with the profit percentage as per your chosen SIP amount.

  • Expense ratio

    Like any other AMC, Franklin Templeton India charges a percentage of your assets as a fee or annual cost of maintaining these funds. This is the expense ratio. Consider choosing a fund with a low expense ratio. By doing so, you will not burden your finances resulting in higher net returns. 

  • Fund manager

    The experience of a fund manager acts as an assurance that your investment is in good hands. Therefore, you must check the fund manager’s experience and qualifications. Also, make note of the fund managers’ track record of maintaining other funds 

    To invest in Franklin Templeton Mutual Funds, consider analyzing investment decisions made by fund manager Sandeep Manam. He has over 12 years of experience and specialization in foreign securities.
