Franklin Templeton has expanded its partnership with Envestnet and signed on to sponsor the Envestnet Institute on Campus (EIOC) program. As part of the sponsorship, Franklin Templeton will help enhance the curriculum of EIOC and will work to increase its participation at current and new colleges and universities.
(EIOC) is a program designed to develop a collaborative relationship between academia and industry-leading firms in the wealth and asset management space. Its purpose is to provide a mechanism by which motivated students are offered a training regimen specifically designed to bridge the gap between the knowledge presented in academia and the application of this knowledge in the world of wealth and asset management. EIOC aims to create an ecosystem in which industry hiring managers are able to identify potential employees who are well qualified for a career in the financial services industry. Franklin Templeton will act as program ambassador by placing interns and filling entry-level openings within the firm, where available.
“Franklin Templeton is an active participant in working to improve diversity across the industry, and this initiative complements our commitment to partner with leading organizations to foster a more inclusive investment management industry,” said Regina Curry, Chief Diversity Officer for Franklin Templeton. “We believe a diverse and inclusive workforce enables us to deliver better outcomes for our clients. With award-winning content and expertise from the Franklin Templeton Academy, we are excited to provide relevant industry knowledge to the next generation of specialists.”
