And that is exactly what has been happening since the shock vote in the UK. Globally, Legg Mason and its specialist fund managers, sensing the concerns of investors, have moved into a proactive communication footing and provided regular updates to investors worldwide, including Australian clients.
A key advantage of Legg Mason’s multi affiliate model is that in times of volatility, investors can be presented with a range of opinions within the Legg Mason stable of fund managers, rather than a single house view. This is particularly relevant when unprecedented events occur and different points of view may be equally valid and helpful to develop a fully informed viewpoint.
All nine fund managers, including Western Asset, Brandywine, Martin Currie, RARE Infrastructure, QS Investors, EntrustPermal, ClearBridge, Clarion Partners and Royce & Associates have been on the front foot on presenting their insights in the Brexit aftermath.
Last Wednesday evening a global teleconference was held with fund managers located in London and New York, to a worldwide audience of Legg Mason investors.
