NEW DELHI: Good news for some of the investors in the six schemes closed down by Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund in April 2020. The fund house will pay out the cash holding in five of the six schemes to investors in accordance with the Supreme Court verdict on the matter.
Investors in the
India Low Duration Fund will get back an estimated 63% of the value of their investment while investors in the Franklin India Ultra Short Bond Fund will get back almost 50% when Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund starts distributing cash next week.
But investors in the Franklin India Short Term Plan can expect less than 9% only, while investors in one of the six closed schemes will get nothing in the first tranche. The Franklin India Income Opportunities Fund is not yet cash positive though its borrowing levels have come down to 5%.
