Franklin Templeton has a new product head for its Toronto-based Canadian and Latin American business.

Brad Gerster is the firm’s new head of product for the Americas, where he’ll manage Franklin Templeton’s product line through retail, institutional and private wealth channels, a release said.

Gerster started at Franklin Templeton last year as a product consultant after 13 years at Mackenzie Investments, where he was senior vice-president of product and later head of fund tax services.
