Franklin Templeton Investments has launched a European version of its mutual fund of hedge funds.

The Franklin K2 Alternative Strategies SICAV offers European investors access to its multi-manager alternatives fund for the first time. The firm, which bought fund of hedge funds K2 Advisors in 2012, launched the U.S. version of the fund last year.

The SICAV version will be managed by Rob Christian, Brooks Ritchey and David Saunders.
