Franklin's Acquisitions Have Helped the Firm Offset Some of the Equity and Credit Market Volatility

Greggory Warren, CFA Sector Strategist

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Greggory Warren, CFA |

While the combination of rising interest rates and an equity market selloff has negatively affected Franklin Resources' assets under management, we remain cautiously optimistic about the firm over the near to medium term. Franklin came into fiscal 2022 (ending September) with $1.530 trillion in AUM, which rose to a record $1.578 trillion at the end of December 2021, but market losses of more than $150 billion and outflows of more than $35 billion since the start of calendar 2022 left the company with $1.388 trillion in managed assets at the end of August.
