    Hello all,
    Been looking at TGG - part of the templeton group - they specialise in global equities. Value based. Buy and hold (similar to the older LICs ARG, AFI, etc).
    They are unhedged and pay fully franked divs. Holdings are diversified (breakdown is similar to the MSCI world index - tho, they don't claim to follow it). Been around for 10years+.
    Issues i see with this - no regular share purchase plan (so need to buy on the market to accumulate), MER of %1 is high compared to ARG/AFI, doesn't fit my current indexed approach but it is passive investor.

    Would appreciate thoughts from ex- or current holders. Or those who have already researched TGG.
