Source: Franklin Templeton Investments (FTI), as of 31 December 2017, based on latest available data. Total combined Assets Under Management (Total AUM) combines U.S. and non-U.S. AUM of the investment management subsidiaries of the
parent company, Franklin Resources, Inc. (FRI) [NYSE: BEN], a global investment management organisation operating as FTI. Only selected business entities within FTI claim compliance with the GIPS standards as described in the table of contents if
applicable. Total and platform AUM includes discretionary and non-discretionary accounts, including pooled investment vehicles, separate accounts and other vehicles. Total and platform AUM may also include advisory accounts with or without trading
authority. In addition, assets for which certain FTI advisers provide limited asset allocation advisory services, and assets that are not allocated to FTI products are not included in the AUM figures shown. Franklin Templeton Multi-Asset Solutions may
invest in various investment platforms advised by a number of investment advisory entities within FTI. Platform AUM reported for FT Multi-Asset Solutions therefore may include certain AUM separately reported under each utilised investment platform.
Total AUM also includes assets managed by certain FTI advisers that do not form part of the selected investment platforms shown. As a result, the combined platform AUMs may not equal Total AUM and may be calculated and reported separately for
regulatory or other purposes under each investment adviser. Each local asset manager may be considered as an entity affiliated with or associated to FTI by virtue of being a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of FRI, an entity or joint venture in
which FRI owns a partial interest, which may be a minority interest, or a third party asset management company to which investment advisory services have been delegated by an FTI adviser.

Information is historical and may not reflect current or future portfolio characteristics. All portfolio holdings are subject to change.
The portfolio characteristics listed are based on the Fund’s underlying holdings, and do not necessarily reflect the Fund’s characteristics. Due to data limitations all equity holdings are assumed to be the primary equity issue (usually the ordinary or
common shares) of each security’s issuing company. This methodology may cause small differences between the portfolio’s reported characteristics and the portfolio’s actual characteristics. In practice, Franklin Templeton’s portfolio managers
invest in the class or type of security which they believe is most appropriate at the time of purchase. The market capitalisation figures for both the portfolio and the benchmark are the security level, not aggregated up to the main issuer.
Source: FactSet. Price Ratio calculations for the weighted average use harmonic means. Any exceptions to this are noted. The IBES Estimated 3-5 Year EPS Growth uses simple weighted average means; there can be no assurance that the
estimated figure will be realised. Market capitalisation statistics are indicated in the base currency for the portfolio presented.

Glossary

Beta: A measure of the magnitude of a portfolio's past share-price fluctuations in relation to the ups and downs of the overall market (or appropriate market index). The market (or index)
is assigned a beta of 1.00, so a portfolio with a beta of 1.20 would have seen its share price rise or fall by 12% when the overall market rose or fell by 10%.

Estimated 3-5 Yr EPS Growth: An estimated measure of the growth of earnings per share over a forward-looking period. For a portfolio, the value represents a weighted average of
the stocks it holds.

Historical 3 Yr Sales Growth: The rate at which sales have increased for the fund's underlying holdings over the last three years.

Information Ratio: In investing terminology, the ratio of expected return to risk. Usually, this statistical technique is used to measure a manager's performance against a benchmark.
This measure explicitly relates the degree by which an investment has beaten the benchmark to the consistency by which the investment has beaten the benchmark.

Market Capitalisation: A determination of a company's value, calculated by multiplying the total number of company stock shares outstanding by the price per share.

P/E to Growth: A ratio used to determine a stock's value while taking into account earnings growth. For a portfolio, the value represents a weighted average of the stocks it holds.

Price to Book: The price per share of a stock divided by its book value (i.e., net worth) per share. For a portfolio, the value represents a weighted average of the stocks it holds.

Price to Cash Flow: Supplements price/earnings ratio as a measure of relative value for a stock. For a portfolio, the value represents a weighted average of the stocks it holds.

Price to Earnings (12-mo Forward): A measure of the price to earnings ratio for a stock using the forecasted earnings for the next 12 months. For a portfolio, the value represents a
weighted average of the stocks it holds.

Price to Earnings (12-mo Trailing): The share price of a stock, divided by its per-share earnings over the past year. For a portfolio, the value represents a weighted average of the
stocks it holds.

Sharpe Ratio: To calculate a Sharpe ratio, an asset's excess returns (its return in excess of the return generated by risk-free assets such as Treasury bills) are divided by the asset's
standard deviation.

Standard Deviation: A measure of the degree to which a fund's return varies from the average of its previous returns. The larger the standard deviation, the greater the likelihood (and
risk) that a fund's performance will fluctuate from the average return.

Tracking Error: Measure of the deviation of the return of a fund compared to the return of a benchmark over a fixed period of time. Expressed as a percentage. The more passively the
investment fund is managed, the smaller the tracking error.
