The best bargains, in our view, are those stocks having the lowest prices in relation to possible earning power of future years.” - Sir John Templeton (October 1957)


Investment Philosophy

Templeton utilizes a disciplined, consistent approach based on three timeless principles of investing:

  • Value: Our flexible approach is applied within a disciplined framework and seeks to identify companies trading at large discounts to their business value.
  • Patience: Our long-term focus gives us a framework to take advantage of price volatility to reveal potential long-term investment opportunities. Patience allows for potential long-term value recognition.
  • Bottom-up stock picking: Our portfolio management process seeks to buy pessimism and sell optimism. We build portfolios spanning regions and sectors made up of securities identified through this process.
