Franklin Templeton Investments (India) has launched a six-video series content initiative to deliver investor education messages through real-life inspirational human experiences — stories of ordinary people who have had an impact on society and communities.

The campaign titled ‘Reach for Better’, in partnership with The Better India, aims to bring alive the concept of the theme through a ‘beyond just investments, larger-than-life’ approach, amplifying Franklin Templeton Investments’ core thought of standing for ‘Reach For Better’.

Each of the stories is pegged to one investment pillar.

Speaking at the launch, Juzer Tambawalla, Director and Head, Marketing, Franklin Templeton Investments, said, “We have sought inspiration from real-life individuals to draw parallels with each situation, in an effort to impart core values that we believe are instrumental while investing. Each story is an excellent example of how one can succeed by using these principles even with their own investments.”

Commenting on the launch, Balaji Vaidyanathan, Deputy Head, Marketing, Franklin Templeton Investments, said, “The Reach for Better campaign draws inspiration from multiple dynamic backgrounds. It features a diverse set of individuals like a tech-savvy visually challenged person, a best-selling author who started as a domestic help, a successful transgender radio host who broke gender stereotypes, a young innovator transforming lives, an individual who revolutionised farming across the globe and a woman entrepreneur who triumphed against all odds. Each story is woven beautifully in a manner that talks about the importance of that tenet to one’s life, as well as investments.”

Talking about this partnership, Dhimant Parekh, CEO and Founder of The Better India, said, “As a natural extension of this philosophy, The Better India and Franklin Templeton Investments have come together to tell stories about Indians who despite all odds have stayed true to their real purpose, reached for better, while making a massive impact in the lives of so many others.”

The first episode showcases the story of Kajal Brahmavar, the first transgender radio jockey from coastal Karnataka. From begging on the streets to becoming Karnataka’s first transgender RJ, Kajal’s journey has been nothing short of inspiring. Even though she faced a number of challenges in life and went through multiple highs and lows, she chose to stay resilient. Her never-give-up attitude is an inspiration for all.

It is this spirit of resilience that Franklin Templeton Investments and The Better India are celebrating through Kajal’s story. Whether in life or with your investments, staying resilient can help you #ReachForBetter.
