Martin Cobb has been replaced by Dylan Ball as manager of Franklin Templeton's Growth fund.
The move comes as a result of Cobb's decision to move from Franklin Templeton's Edinburgh office to its Toronto operation.
Cobb's research responsibilities for the global oil and gas sector coverage and country coverage of the UK and Ireland – will not change.
Ball has global research responsibilities for the insurance, reinsurance and insurance broking industries and provides country research coverage of Eastern Europe. Prior to joining Franklin Templeton in 2007, Ball worked as a research analyst for Credit Suisse First Boston.
