ACCESS GLOBAL INCOME OPPORTUNITIES

Franklin Global Aggregate Bond Strategy

In times of volatility and uncertainty in the global markets, we are reminded of the importance of an optimally diversified portfolio. Franklin Global Aggregate Bond Strategy is designed to provide diversification beyond our borders and yields not available in the domestic credit markets. An actively managed strategy that incorporates top-down macro views and bottom-up analysis to find the best opportunities.

Since its launch in May of 2018, Franklin Liberty Global Aggregate Bond ETF (CAD-Hedged) (FLGA) has been a popular core global bond ETF for Canadian advisors and investors. We are very excited to now offer this strategy as a mutual fund – Franklin Global Aggregate Bond Fund.
