Brandywine Global Wins Institutional Investor's Large-Cap Value Equity Investment Management Award

-Strategy recognized for impressive performance and fiduciary savvy-

PHILADELPHIA--()--Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc. (NYSE: LM), announced today that the Dynamic Large-Cap Value Equity strategy, managed by Michael Fleisher, Henry Otto and Steven Tonkovich, received an Institutional Investor U.S. Investment Management Award.

This is Institutional Investor's 7th year of the award, which recognizes U.S. institutional investors whose innovative strategies and fiduciary savvy resulted in impressive returns in 2015. Winners of the award stand out in the eyes of the investor community for their exceptional performance, risk management and service.

“We are honored to have won this award in the large-cap value equity space for the second year in a row,” says Michael Fleisher, portfolio manager for the strategy. “Institutional Investor is a highly regarded media outlet within the industry and such recognition is a welcomed privilege.”

Dynamic Large-Cap Value offers a purely model-based approach to large-cap value investing based on the Diversified Equity team's detailed research into historical factor movements that describe market returns. The strategy is based on historical modeling and consistently rotates into segments of the investable universe that its managers believe offer an attractive combination of inexpensive earnings valuation and fundamental strength. The strategy also employs a proprietary timing tool to adjust between broad- and deep-value modes.
