About the Scheme Type

Banking and PSU Fund

Banking and PSU debt funds are generally seen as an alternative for bank deposits with low risk, liquidity and the appetite to generate stable returns. As seen in the past, these funds have an average maturity of about 2 years and invest mostly in AAA rated securities – bank certificates of deposits or bonds / debentures of PSUs. The volatility in their case is relatively lower than long-duration funds and is suited for investors looking for higher returns than bank deposits but at the same time, do not want to be exposed to high risks


This fund is rated 5 stars by Morning Star Ratings.

Since 1947, our firm has been dedicated to delivering exceptional asset management for institutional, retail, and high-net-worth clients. Franklin Templeton's association with India dates back to over 2 decades as an investor. As part of the group's major thrust on investing in markets around the world, the India office was set up in 1996 as Templeton Asset Management India Pvt. Limited. It flagged off the mutual fund business with the launch of Templeton India Growth Fund in September 1996, and since then the business has grown at a steady pace.

At Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund, we understand that the strength of our business relationships is a key point of differentiation for us as a company, along with the trust that our business partners and clients have in us. Throughout the Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund’s history, a strong commitment to corporate values has guided our decision making and has been a roadmap for our success.

These values, and our unique perspective, help us achieve our mission by offering high quality investment solutions, providing outstanding service, and attracting, motivating and retaining talented people. They also help to create a “culture of compliance.” Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund’s core values include

  • Putting clients first
  • Building relationships
