Active ETFs

Active ETFs refer to a type of ETF that have a portfolio manager or team of managers that make investment decisions based on research and manager insights to determine the portfolio’s underlying holdings and allocations. Active ETFs provide investors with access to investment management expertise combined with the attractive features of an ETF vehicle.

POTENTIAL FOR BETTER INVESTMENT OUTCOMES

Active ETFs have the potential to achieve better investment outcomes versus traditional index products, which are designed to track, not outperform, benchmark indices.

Our ETF portfolio managers have the opportunity to respond to market events, navigate various market environments and invest outside the confines of traditional benchmark index products.

ACCESS TO ACTIVE INVESTMENT EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE

Franklin Templeton Investments is a trusted leader in active management with over 70 years of investing insights grounded in fundamental, bottom-up research.

Franklin Liberty Shares ETFs are supported by one of the industry’s largest global research platforms, operating in 35 countries with over 600 investment professionals.

EXCHANGE TRADED FUND FEATURES

Similiar to traditional index and smart beta ETFs, active ETFs offer investors the ease of trading during market hours, competitive ETF pricing and transparency with access to portfolio holdings on a daily basis.

There is no guarantee that any strategy will achieve its objective. ETFs are not riskless investments, and investors can lose money. An investment in Franklin Liberty ETFs entails risks which are described in the Fund's prospectus and Key Investor Information Document.
