          Growth of $10,000 - Excluding Sales Charge

          Inception through Mar-31-2014


          The performance shown represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results and current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Principal value and investment returns will fluctuate, and investors' shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. For performance data including the effects of sales charges, Class A shares reflect the deduction of a maximum front-end sales charge of 5.75%. One-year returns for Class C shares reflect a maximum contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) of up to 1.0%, respectively.

          If sales charges were included, performance shown would be lower.

          What should I know before investing?

          Equity securities are subject to price fluctuation and possible loss of principal. Small- and mid-cap stocks involve greater risks and volatility than large-cap stocks. The Fund may focus its investments in certain regions or industries, increasing its vulnerability to market volatility. As a nondiversified fund, it is permitted to invest a higher percentage of its assets in any one issuer than a diversified fund, which may magnify the fund's losses from events affecting a particular issuer. International investments are subject to special risks, including currency fluctuations and social, economic and political uncertainties, which could increase volatility. Derivatives, such as options and futures, can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses, and have a potentially large impact on fund performance. The manager's investment style may become out of favor and/or the manager's selection process may prove incorrect, which may have a negative impact on the Fund's performance.

          The Fund may engage in short selling, which is a speculative strategy that involves special risks. Unlike the possible loss on a security that is purchased, there is no limit on the amount of loss on an appreciating security that is sold short.

          Active share is a measure of the percentage of stock holdings in a manager?s portfolio that differ from the benchmark index.

          Additional risks may include those risks associated with investing in fixed-income securities, real estate and leverage. Please see the prospectus for more information.

          **Gross expenses are the Fund's total annual operating expenses for the share class(es) shown. For Class(es) A, C, FI, I & R, there are currently no fee waivers in effect, so gross and net expenses are identical.

          † Morningstar proprietary ratings are as of March 31, 2014 and are subject to change every month. A 4- or 5-star rating does not necessarily imply that a fund achieved positive results for the period. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) Class R and C shares of the Fund were rated against 365, 307, and 191 Mid-Cap Value funds over the 3-, 5- and 10-year periods, respectively. With respect to these funds, Class R and C shares of the Fund received Morningstar Ratings of 3, 4, and n/a; 3, 4, and 1 stars for the 3-, 5- and 10-year periods, respectively. Ratings shown are for the highest and lowest rated share classes only, when available. Other share classes have different expense structures and performance characteristics. Classes have a common portfolio.

          Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Each fund is ranked based on average annual total returns assuming reinvestment of dividends, capital gains and distributions at net asset value and the deduction of all fund expenses. Each fund is ranked within a universe of funds similar in portfolio characteristics and capitalizations as defined by Lipper Inc. Rankings do not include the effect of the Fund's sales charges. Results would have been less favorable had sales charges been included. A high Lipper ranking does not necessarily imply that a fund achieved positive results for the period. Lipper Inc. is a nationally recognized organization that ranks the performance of mutual funds.

          Prior to May 10, 2013, this Fund was known as Legg Mason Capital Management Opportunity Trust.

          Mutual Funds:
          Investors should consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. Find this and other information in each fund's prospectus or if available, summary prospectus on the product specific pages of this website. Read it carefully before investing.

          An investment in a money market fund is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund.

          Separately Managed Accounts (SMA):
          Managed Accounts/Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) are investment services provided by Legg Mason Private Portfolio Group, LLC (LMPPG), a federally registered investment adviser. Client portfolios are managed based on investment instructions or advice provided by one or more of the following Legg Mason-affiliated sub-advisers: ClearBridge Investments and Western Asset Management Company. Management is implemented by LMPPG, the designated sub-adviser or, in the case of certain programs, the program sponsor or its designee.

          Closed-End Funds:
          The Closed-End Funds are not sold or distributed by Legg Mason Investor Services, LLC ("LMIS") or any affiliate of Legg Mason, Inc. Unlike open-end funds, shares are not continually offered. Like other public companies, closed-end funds have a one-time initial public offering, and once their shares are first issued, are generally bought and sold through non-affiliated broker/dealers and trade on nationally recognized stock exchanges. Share prices will fluctuate with market conditions and, at the time of sale, may be worth more or less than your original investment. Shares of exchange-traded closed-end funds may trade at a discount or premium to their original offering price, and often trade at a discount to their net asset value. Net Asset Value (NAV) is total assets less total liabilities divided by the number of shares outstanding. Market Price, determined by supply and demand, is the price an investor purchases or sells the fund. Investment return, market price and net asset value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. The Funds are subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of principal invested. Note that unlike other closed-end funds, Western Asset Middle Market Debt Fund is not publicly traded and is closed to new investors.

          529 - Scholars Choice:
          An investor should consider the Program's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The Program Disclosure Statement at scholars-choice.com, which contains more information, should be read carefully before investing. If an investor and/or an investor's beneficiary are not Colorado taxpayers, they should consider before investing whether their home states offer 529 plans that provide state tax and other benefits only available to state taxpayers investing in such plans.

Investments are not guaranteed by the State of Colorado, CollegeInvest, Legg Mason Global Asset Allocation, LLC, Legg Mason Investor Services, LLC, or Legg Mason, Inc. or its affiliates and are subject to investment risks, including loss of principal amount invested.
