Legg Mason, Inc. Launches Hands Benefit & Trust Long Duration Credit Collective Investment Fund
Apr 2 15
Legg Mason Inc. announced the launch of the Hands Benefit & Trust Long Duration Credit Collective Investment Fund (CIF) which is sub-advised by Western Asset. The fund is benchmarked to the Barclays Long Credit index and will allow eligible retirement plans the efficiency and flexibility to better align assets with their liabilities. The Fund will be managed by Ryan Brist, Head of US investment-Grade Credit/Portfolio Manager, and Blanton Keh, Portfolio Manager, who will be supported by Western Asset's Global Credit Team. Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests in a diverse portfolio of primarily investment-grade credit bonds, but it may also make other opportunistic investments, including limited investments in high-yield, emerging markets and mortgage-backed securities. Western Asset's investment process combines a traditional fundamental value orientation with credit research driven ideas in an effort to exceed benchmark indices. Western Asset attempts to add incremental value by exploiting the efficiencies in the corporate bond market.
