Brandywine Global’s Dynamic Large Cap Value Recognized as Top Guns Manager of the Decade by Informa Investment Solutions

PHILADELPHIA--()--Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc. (NYSE: LM), today announced that its Dynamic Large Cap Value Equity strategy has been recognized as one of the “Top Guns of the Decade” by Informa Investment Solutions' PSN manager database.

This prestigious achievement ranks Dynamic Large Cap Value Equity, led by Michael Fleisher, Henry Otto, and Steven Tonkovich, among the top 10 investment managers out of 244 firms and 358 products within the PSN Large Cap Value Universe for the 10-year period ended December 31, 2016.

“Our performance over the past ten years is the direct result of our quantitative, factor-driven process and our ability to adjust our approach to reflect the current market environment and value cycle,” says portfolio manager Michael Fleisher. “We’re proud that Informa has recognized our consistent ability to deliver excess returns to our clients over the past ten years. Looking forward, we believe that our disciplined, value-focused approach will allow us to continue to uncover long-term patterns of outperformance.”

Investment products earning PSN Top Guns Manager of the Decade status must have an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater along with outperformance relative to the style benchmark for the latest 10-year period. Additionally, standard deviation must be less than the style benchmark for the same period. The top 10 performers meeting these criteria become the PSN Top Guns of the Decade.

"We congratulate Brandywine Global’s Dynamic Large Cap Value Equity investment team on their distinction as a PSN Top Gun,” said Leno Toich, Managing Director of Informa Investment Solutions. “This highly anticipated ranking recognizes elite performers on the leading investment manager database in North America and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors across our platform.”
