Bill Miller to Acquire Legg Mason’s Stake in LMM LLC
Today, it was announced that I will buy out Legg Mason’s remaining stake in LMM, the investment adviser to the Opportunity Equity and Income Opportunity strategies. Both Legg Mason and I anticipated this transition, and view the signing of the deal as the final step in a long process that started with the launch of Opportunity in 1999 and continued with the launch of Miller Income Opportunity in 2009. This deal aligns with the long-term strategic goals of both Legg Mason and our Firm.
I am dedicated to managing our strategies and to our investors. Our team is committed to our value-based, long-term investment approach.
I am excited about the future of our Firm. We plan to selectively add complementary investment strategies that we can offer through a broader range of investment vehicles. I hope investors are as enthusiastic as I am about this transition, as it represents my ongoing commitment to our investment process and to true active management.
