The fund's portfolio manager, Mark Mobius, is also managing director of Templeton Asset Management Ltd. The four main countries represent an eclectic economic, cultural and political mix that, he posited, should lower the BRIC fund's overall volatility. Nonetheless, with a prospectus that pledges at least 80 percent of assets invested in securities of BRIC companies, the fund is a strong vote of confidence in emerging markets generally.
