ClearBridge Investments has named Aram Green a portfolio manager on the Aggressive Growth, Multi Cap Growth and All Cap Growth strategies effective March 31, 2021. Green joins portfolio managers Richie Freeman and Evan Bauman. Freeman, who has managed the Aggressive Growth Strategy since its inception in 1983, will stay in his current role through December 31, 2021, while Bauman will remain a co-portfolio manager.
Green, a former software entrepreneur, joined ClearBridge as a research analyst in the information technology sector in 2006 before being named a portfolio manager in 2007. He currently co-manages ClearBridge small and mid cap growth strategies. In addition, he manages the ClearBridge Select Strategy, which has an all cap mandate. He will remain a portfolio manager on these strategies.
“With nearly 20 years of investment industry experience, Aram has built a reputation as an astute growth investor,” said Terrence Murphy, CEO of ClearBridge, a leading global equity manager committed to active management. “We believe his background working across the market cap spectrum will allow him to identify smaller companies that can maintain a strong growth trajectory as they graduate into the large cap space.”
