  • ClearBridge Investments, LLC claims compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®). ClearBridge Investments, LLC ("ClearBridge") is a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc. ("Legg Mason").  The investment advisory business now known as ClearBridge was registered in September 2005 to facilitate Legg Mason's acquisition of substantially all the equity asset management businesses known as Citigroup Asset Management. These former businesses serve as the foundation of ClearBridge and its claim of GIPS compliance for institutional accounts through predecessor firms, effective as of January 1997.  In June 2008, ClearBridge combined this business with its retail business to form a single GIPS firm.  As of April 1, 2013 and January 1, 2016, ClearBridge's affiliates, Global Currents Investment Management, LLC, and ClearBridge, LLC, respectively, have become part of the ClearBridge GIPS firm. In July 2020 Legg Mason, Inc. was purchased by Franklin Resources Inc. The ClearBridge Large Cap Value ESG SMA composite managers actively integrate criteria inclusive of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into the portfolio construction of the strategy. Accounts within the composite seek long-term capital appreciation by investing in securities with favorable risk-adjusted return characteristics.  Investments are primarily made in large-capitalization U.S. companies but may also invest in mid-capitalization companies. Results calculated in U.S. dollars.  Pure gross returns shown do not reflect the deduction of "bundled" fees and are presented as supplemental information to net returns. The Russell 1000® Value Index measures the performance of the large-cap value segment of the U.S. equity universe.To receive a complete list and description of ClearBridge composites and/or a presentation that adheres to the GIPS standards, please contact ClearBridge Institutional Marketing.
