Franklin Mutual Quest struggled relative to the world allocation Morningstar Category norm and the MSCI World Value Index in 2017. Still, the merits that have propelled this fund to long-term success remain. Namely, it should continue to benefit from a strong management team, time-tested process, and attractive fees. The fund draws from the same resources that back all of Franklin’s Mutual Series offerings. It earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Bronze, in line with other Mutual Series funds rated by Morningstar Analysts.
