Our story
From large institutions to individual investors, each of our clients wants the same thing. To achieve their financial goals.
And for more than 70 years, we’ve helped them do exactly that. Everything we do at Franklin Templeton is focused on
delivering our clients better outcomes. And that’s why clients in more than 160 countries have entrusted us with their
investments, making us one of the world’s largest asset managers with over $1.4 trillion in assets under management.1
 
Investment excellence and rigour
Consisting of more than 1,300 investment professionals, our unmatched range of specialist managers provides our clients
deep expertise across asset classes, investment styles, and geographies. Each manager follows a well-defined
investment process rooted in the discipline, rigour and experience gained over decades of successfully navigating global
markets—and underpinned by robust risk management protocols at the portfolio and enterprise levels. And we
continuously enhance these processes, incorporating new approaches developed through the work of our specialists in
fields like sustainable investing and data science.
 
Global scale and local insights
As pioneers in global investing, we’ve long recognised that opportunity can spring up anywhere. Today, we have offices in
34 countries. And we combine the strength of our truly global scale with the specialised knowledge and local insights of
our investment teams located in financial capitals, inside emerging markets, and at other strategic locations around the
world.
 
Meaningful innovation
We’re committed to pursuing innovation with one goal in mind: delivering meaningful benefits to our clients. From
embedding artificial intelligence into our research and investment decision-making to creating a fintech incubation centre
on our main campus, we’ve made innovation a cornerstone of our business and culture. And that lets us rapidly harness
the power of new technologies and other advances for our clients.
 
Connections that matter
In a business as complex as investing, no individual has all the answers. We believe that connections with others are a
source of critical perspective. So we build valuable connections between our clients, our portfolio managers, business
leaders, and economic experts. We’ve also committed ourselves to being good corporate citizens. That includes fostering
a more inclusive investment environment, empowering our employees to volunteer in their communities, and helping
create a brighter future through charitable giving.

M&G

M&G

At M&G, our purpose is clear: We want to help you, and your clients, to prosper by putting your investments to work.

Investing well for our customers demands a responsible, active and long-term approach. We look for the best opportunities to invest, across a wide range of assets for people who care how their money is invested.

Currently M&G look after over 219,000* investors and have more than £271.6 billion** funds under management.

M&G believes that to lead the market, not to follow it, requires creative thinking, acting with conviction and working collaboratively. This combination of vision, expertise, and insight is what makes us different.

The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.

About WisdomTree

WisdomTree Investments, Inc., through its subsidiaries in the US, Europe and Canada (collectively, "WisdomTree"), is an exchange traded fund ("ETF") and exchange traded product ("ETP") sponsor. WisdomTree was founded in 2006 with a passion for creating better ways to invest, by being the first investment manager to weight by dividends. We have never accepted the status quo and we think our investors shouldn’t either.

Since 2014, our European business has grown in terms of our product set and AUM. In April 2018, we completed the acquisition of ETF Securities' exchange-traded commodities, currencies and short-and-leveraged business, including the world’s first gold ETP. In September 2019, we unified 224 products under the WisdomTree brand and closed 192 duplicative or extraneous products across our product set.

Today we are the biggest independent ETP provider globally and offer one of the most innovative ranges of ETPs, covering commodities, currencies, equities, fixed income and alternatives.

At WisdomTree, we are committed to providing superior investment and trading solutions for our clients. It’s what motivates us to challenge and innovate. As we grow, we will keep redefining investment strategies that enable investors to outperform cap-weighted indices and to diversify their portfolios beyond traditional asset classes.
