Description

ClearBridge Investments is a leading global equity manager with over $147 billion in assets under management.  Our mission is to deliver long-term results through authentic active management. We pursue this goal through a combination of research-driven, fundamental investing and the insights of our veteran portfolio managers, some of whom have been managing the same portfolios for decades. Owned by Franklin Templeton, ClearBridge operates with investment independence from headquarters in New York and offices in Baltimore, London, San Francisco, Sydney and Wilmington.

 

ClearBridge Investments has been named by Pensions & Investments Magazine (P&I) as one of the Best Places to Work in Money Management for the eighth year in a row. These awards reflect the Firm's spirit of collaboration, work/life balance and ongoing investment in our employees. The Firm fosters a close-knit work environment that promotes career enhancement and development; most of our portfolio managers began at the firm as analysts.   The firm continues to see strong growth in assets, new investment mandates and global awareness, and is looking to expand its talent base to support that growth.
