Legg Mason adds 17 funds to UK’s IMA sectors

Legg Mason has added its $1bn Brandywine Global Fixed Income fund and 16 other offshore offerings to the IMA’s fund sectors for the first time.

The group said the inclusion of the funds will allow advisers to compare a selection of key Legg Mason strategies with UK equivalents on a like-for-like basis.

Legg Mason Brandywine Global Fixed Income and the $745 Legg Mason Western Asset Asian Opportunities fund have joined the IMA Global Bonds sector, and the group has also listed five different funds in the IMA North America sector.

Legg Mason said it will put forward other offshore funds for inclusion in due course.

“The ability to promote our offshore funds on an equal footing will be a significant benefit as we seek to raise awareness of strategies we believe will appeal to advisers seeking strong offerings from specialist managers across a number of key asset classes,” said Adam Gent (pictured), Legg Mason’s head of UK sales.
