About Beyond Bulls & Bears
Markets are always changing. Positive news one day can lift market spirits and send prices soaring – but negative news the next can dampen spirits, causing prices to sink. It’s the same old battle between bulls and bears many investors already know. At Beyond Bulls & Bears, we don’t let ourselves be guided by the daily blips up and down; instead, we focus on the long-term.
Beyond Bulls & Bears is the brainchild of Franklin Templeton Investments, a global investment manager with over $730 billion in assets under management. With a 60-year history in global investing and over 500 investment professionals across the globe, our extensive expertise and deep research capabilities support multiple, world class investment groups.
At Beyond Bulls & Bears, our backgrounds are varied- financial journalists, M.B.A.s, investment professionals, and social media enthusiasts who share one thing in common: A passion for getting you fresh insight straight from the source.
Each week, we’ll track down Franklin Templeton’s money managers to get you their macro-economic perspectives. We also value your perspective, and welcome your comments and questions, as we try to produce content that addresses your needs. Whether you’re a financial advisor or an individual investor in search of direct insight from professional money managers, we’ll cover topics that are timely and relevant to you.
At Beyond Bulls & Bears our mission is not to bring you the latest hot stock tip or bit of Wall Street gossip. It’s to share the on-the-ground, long-term perspectives of investment professionals adept at navigating the increasingly complex world of global investing. Markets change. The fundamentals of good investing don’t.
“Bear markets have always been temporary. And so have bull markets.” — Sir John Templeton
