Kolkata, Feb. 13
Franklin Templeton, which about a year ago briefly suspended sale of one of its top products, may choose to consider such a move again if investors' interests are at stake, Mr Kudva said here on Tuesday.
The fund in question, Franklin India Prima Fund, was then faced with a large size and challenging market conditions.
Large short-term inflows into the fund would have been detrimental to the interests of its unitholders, it was felt.
Earlier, Reliance MF took a similar step with regard to Reliance Growth Fund.
FT accordingly had suspended sales for 6 months even though it allowed SIPs to continue.
However, it will keep in mind factors such as volatility and possible over-heating of the market before it weighs such a proposal, Mr Kudva clarified.
