Fund Description

The fund is a "fund to funds" meaning that it seeks to achieve its investment goal by investing its assets in a combination of the Franklin Growth Fund, Franklin Growth Opportunities Fund, Franklin Mutual Shares Fund and Templeton Growth Fund (underlying funds) on a fixed percentage basis. It makes equal allocations (approximately 25%) to each of the underlying funds. These underlying funds, in turn, invest primarily in U.S. and foreign equity securities.
