Putnam Investments


Overall Ranking (82%)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

Founded in 1937 with one of the first balanced mutual funds, Putnam Investments has built a world-wide reputation as a leading investment management organisation. Today, we manage assets for over 13 million shareholders and over 600 institutional clients in 114 countries.

Putnam World Trust II Funds are organised in four investment categories. Each category has its own degree of risk.

Growth Funds are designed to give investors the opportunity to build wealth over time by investing in companies with above average earnings and growth rates. Growth funds can produce above average returns over time for investors who are willing to accept more risk.

Blend Funds are designed to have the flexibility to invest in both growth stocks and value stocks, targeting companies believed to be worth more than their current stock prices indicate. Blend fiunds give investors the opportunity to build wealth over time and strive to perform well when either growth or value stocks are in favour.

Value Funds are designed to invest in stocks whose prices are low relative to the company's earnings, dividends and growth potential. Value funds are designed to provide investors with growth and income in varying proportions

Income Funds are designed to invest in interest-paying bonds and, to a limited extent, dividend-paying stocks. Income funds are designed for investors who are seeking a regular stream of income.
