History

Brandywine Global incorporated in 1986 as Brandywine Asset Management, LLC. After building a track record with large- and small-cap domestic value strategies, we sought to increase the depth and breadth of our products to meet the needs of our clients. In 1992, we introduced our first global fixed income strategies.

In January 1998, Legg Mason, Inc., a New York Stock Exchange-listed company which has been providing investment services to institutions and individuals since 1899, acquired Brandywine Asset Management. Operating as a wholly owned but independently operated subsidiary of Legg Mason, Brandywine Global continues to retain complete investment autonomy and full control over all management, strategic, and employment decisions.

Since the late 1990s, the firm has grown significantly, both in assets under management and global breadth. In 2003, Brandywine Global Investment Management (Asia) Pte. Ltd., was established as a wholly owned subsidiary of Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC, providing a full range of investment advisory and fund management services to institutional clients in Singapore. In May 2006, our firm relocated its headquarters from Wilmington, DE, to the Cira Centre in Philadelphia and changed our name to Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC. In 2007, the firm established Brandywine Global Investment Management (Europe) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc. (NYSE: LM) controlled and operated by Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC.
