“We are very excited to launch Series M for Canadian investors, as many are increasingly opting to transition to a fee-based relationship with their advisor,” says Philip Bensen, head of National Sales – Canada for Franklin Templeton Investments. “Series M offers further fee reductions relative to our existing fee-for-service Series F.”

At a minimum investment threshold of $100,000 based on total household assets, Series M gives advisors and their clients a way to build portfolios from 13 investment options, covering a variety of asset classes.
