Shares of Franklin Resources (NYSE: BEN) rose 11.1% in December, a rally that began just before Thanksgiving as the asset management industry consolidated and got ready for a new worldwide competitive race.

Franklin Resources kicked off the escalation after it completed its acquisition of Legg Mason for $4.5 billion in August that brought its combined assets under management to $1.5 trillion.
