FMA utilizes a research driven, fundamental, value-oriented strategy for selecting investments. In selecting their investments, the firm bases on their own analysis of the security's intrinsic value, including, for equity securities, an analysis of book value, cash flow potential, long-term earnings and multiples of earnings. The team examines each investment separately and there are no set criteria as to specific value parameters, asset size, earnings or industry type. The management team also looks for catalysts such as complicated corporate restructurings, the sale of non-core assets, spin-offs, share buybacks, or new management teams (among other factors) which they believe will help unlock value for investors. FMA uses different strategies which include Franklin mutual shares; Franklin mutual beacon and Franklin mutual global discovery; Franklin mutual quest; Franklin mutual European; Franklin mutual US value; Franklin mutual financial services; and Franklin mutual international.
