Fund Description

The Franklin California Tax-Free Income Fund Class A (FKTFX) is an actively managed fund that aims to provide a high level of tax-free income to residents in California. The fund does this by investing in various municipal bonds offered by state and local agencies and governments. Fund management uses credit analysis to find high-quality, undervalued bonds and holds them through maturity. As such, the majority of FKTFX’s holdings would classify as long-dated bonds at 15 years or more. However, the fund is free to invest in various maturities.

For investors living in California who are in higher tax brackets, FKTFX makes a great choice for tax-free income. The fund is internally managed by Franklin Advisors.
