FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. However, over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, over- and under-performed roughly equally. There is not sufficient data to say whether good stock picking has had any real effect on results, which have tended to be relatively better in a rising market.
Manager profile
Mark Mobius, Ph.D., managing director, joined Templeton in 1987 as president of the Templeton Emerging Markets Fund, Inc. He currently directs the analysts based in Templeton's 11 emerging markets offices and manages the emerging markets portfolios. Dr. Mobius has spent more than 30 years working in emerging markets all over the world. Dr. Mobius earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Boston University, and a Ph.D. in economics and political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the author of the books "Trading with China," "The Investor's Guide to Emerging Markets," "Mobius on Emerging Markets," "Passport to Profits" and "Equities – An Introduction to the Core Concepts." Dr. Mobius has received numerous awards. He was named by Asiamoney magazine in 2006 as one of "Top 100 Most Powerful and Influential People." Asiamoney said: "Boasts one of the highest profiles of any investor in the region and is regarded by many in the financial industry as one of the most successful emerging markets investors over the last 20 years. Despite tough times during the financial crisis nine years ago, he still commands a strong following in the investment world and is influencing the direction of billions of investment dollars."

Performance vs peer group composite: Dr. Mark Mobius
How a manager matches up against their peers gives you some idea of how talented they are. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
