– Franklin Templeton President and CEO Jenny Johnson spoke about the transformative potential of blockchain technology and shared her views on the changing investment landscape during a keynote address at the Milken Global Institute conference in Beverly Hills.

Johnson envisioned a future in which ETFs and mutual funds move to blockchain platforms, revolutionizing the way people invest.

Franklin Templeton has become a global leader in investment management with more than $1.6 trillion in assets under management. According to Mr. Johnson, the company has long offered a wide range of services, from traditional asset management to institutional services, wealth management and alternative investments.

Mr. Johnson made a bold prediction, envisioning a future in which blockchain technology penetrates the investment landscape, streamlining processes and reducing transaction costs: he founded the SEC-approved Franklin Templeton Money Market Fund and took the first steps toward blockchain highlighting how distributed ledger technology can increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Mr. Johnson also talked about how blockchain could universalize investment opportunities and allow retail investors to participate in new asset classes such as unique tokens (“NFT-“). While recognizing the regulatory challenges and risks associated with digital assets, Mr. Johnson noted that sound investment strategies and active management are necessary to navigate this rapidly changing landscape.
