All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Please see each investment's individual web page for specific details regarding investment objective, risks, performance and other important information. Review this information carefully before you make any investment decision.

Click here for additional term definitions. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges. Click here for Index Definitions.

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, 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.
