Investment Management Giant Franklin Templeton to Offer Digital Asset Strategies to Wealth Managers

Franklin Templeton, with more than $1.3 trillion in asset under management, in the fourth quarter will begin offering two digital asset separately managed account (SMA) strategies through Eaglebrook Advisors.

The Franklin Templeton Digital Assets Core strategy is market-cap weighted, investing in 10-15 of the largest digital assets. As of June 30, the portfolio is weighted with bitcoin at 69.25%, and ether at 26.15%. Next up is Solana's SOL at 1.65%, with all other tokens weighted at less than 1%.

The Franklin Templeton Digital Assets Core Capped has similar holdings, but with bitcoin and ether each capped at 25% of the portfolio. As of June 30, Solana's SOL makes up 9.83% of the portfolio and Polygon's MATIC 5.74%.

"Such SMAs offer direct ownership, minimal tracking error, low minimums and portfolio reporting integration," said Eaglebrook Advisors in its own announcement of the partnership.
