  • Background:
    Rupert Johnson, Sr. founded Franklin Resources as a mutual fund advisor in 1947. Though the NYSE-company has been publicly listed since 1971, it continues to be controlled by the Johnson family. Currently Rupert Johnson sons Charles Johnson and Rupert Johnson, Jr. both serve as co-chairman. Since 2005 Gregory "Greg" Johnson, grandson of the founder, serves as president and CEO.

    Franklin Templeton was formed in 1992 when Franklin acquired international stock picking specialist Templeton, Galbraith & Hansberger in what was then the largest merger of an independent mutual fund company in history valued at $913 million. Sir John Templeton was the founder of TG&H.

    That merger was followed by the purchase Heine Securities Corporation in 1996. Heine was sponsor to the Mutual Series of funds led by famed portfolio manager Michael Price.

    Other deals followed as Franklin purchased Bissett in 2000, Fiduciary Trust in 2001 and Darby in 2003.
