Own your future

90% of females will be the sole financial decision makers at some point in their life1. Franklin Templeton’s Own Your Future program is designed to empower women to take control of their finances by providing resources that can help you feel confident when searching for the right financial advisor for your needs. The right advisor will not only help you develop a financial plan for your retirement, but can help guide you through difficult transitions and new responsibilities that you will face throughout your life.

Franklin Templeton is committed to supporting female investors and advisors. In 2017, President and CEO Duane W. Green was honoured with the Women in Capital Markets Award for Male Leadership as of a result of his efforts to advance and champion women in the workplace. Learn more here.
