  13. 13. Risk Management is at the Core of the Investment Process• Brandywine believes that risk is the probability of permanent capital loss and is not a relative measure  Focus is on avoiding capital loss rather than budgeting risk relative to a benchmark.• Although it is a high conviction manager, it diversifies positions within broad themes. Price Risk Information Risk • The risk that a security (or portfolio of securities) will • Generated from events that will affect intrinsic value in the future decline in value • What is the macro story and what is the potential for surprise? • Exists when the current price is well above Brandywine‟s • Market perception often lags reality in recognising changes and view of intrinsic value sustainability of fundamental trends. How does Brandywine minimise this risk? How does Brandywine minimise this risk? • Its emphasis on valuation anomalies in the macro process • Its consideration of which key secular macro trends should fundamentally reduces risk. minimise this risk. • Its focus on buying assets that are out of favor and deeply discounted is relative to their intrinsic value.

Risk Management is at the Core of the Investment Process (cont.)• Two-part sign off - conviction from both Steve Smith and David Hoffman required• Gradually adding to positions as comfort increases• Restrict maximum allocation to less liquid markets (0% allocation if no conviction on position)• Do not believe that tracking error is a relevant measure of risk• Risk systems used include Wilshire Axiom and Barclays Point Page 13

  24. 24. The Need for Diversification Outside of Your Domestic Market• Bond and Currency returns vary significantly from country to country, year over year• Restricting your global bond allocations to G3 economies will restrict your diversification and opportunity set• Global flexibility and high conviction are key to maximise total return potential from bonds, currencies and duration allocations – Allocate to global bond funds that are not driven by benchmarks Page 23

Japan: • Remain un-invested in Japanese yen Japan: Emerging Markets: • Remain un-invested in Japanese government bonds. • Exposure to undervalued EM currencies Asia ex Japan: • The capital allocation from Brandywine‟s zero weight in the Japanese yen is used to fund currency positions in the Malaysian ringgit and South Korean won, among others.

  35. 35. Summary: Why Brandywine for Global Bonds?Legg Mason Brandywine Global Fixed Income Fund High conviction, Brandywine Global‟s conviction levels drive the composition of the Fund, not a benchmark. Active management allows investors to gain overweight exposure to countries that are likely to outperform and underweight exposure to those who are likely to underperform. Top down approach that can capitalise on shifting geographic and macro trends.Superior risk adjusted returns designed to capture market upside but aiming to avoid market downside, and to provide long term performance. Access to high real yields with diversification outside of G3 countries. Taking advantage of currency risk to enhance returns. Page 34

  44. 44. Global Fixed Income Investment-Grade Composite DisclosureOrganization: Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC (the "Firm"), is a wholly owned, independently operated, subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc. The Firm has prepared and presented this report in compliance with the Global InvestmentPerformance Standards (GIPS®). For the periods July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2006, the Firm has been verified by Kreischer Miller. A verification includes assessing whether the Firm (1) complied with the composite construction requirementsof the GIPS standards on a firm-wide basis, and (2) designed its processes and procedures to calculate and present performance results in compliance with the GIPS standards. Kreischer Miller has also performed an examination of thecomposite performance presentation from the composite Inception Date through June 30, 2006. A composite examination includes testing a specific composite in order to assess whether that composite’s performance presentation is presented,in all material respects, in conformity with the GIPS standards. Copies of the verification and composite examination reports are available upon request. Disclosed total firm assets represent the total market value of all discretionary andnondiscretionary, fee-paying and non-fee-paying assets under the Firms management. Composite Description: Global Fixed Income Investment Grade Composite (the "Composite") Inception date: July 1, 1992. Creation date: July 1, 1992. TheComposite includes all fully discretionary, fee-paying portfolios managed in the Global Fixed Income Investment Grade Strategy. The strategy invests only in U.S. and foreign investment grade fixed income securities from 8 - 12 countries. Theminimum portfolio size for inclusion in the Composite is $3 million. The Composite utilizes over-the-counter forward exchange rate contracts to manage its currency exposure. These contracts are valued daily using closing forward exchangerates. Brandywine uses WM/Reuters daily FX rates taken at 4 p.m. London time. Benchmark indices exchange rates may vary from Brandywines exchange rates periodically. The Composite returns are benchmarked to the Citigroup WorldGovernment Bond Index (CWGBI) and Lehman Brothers Global Aggregate Index (LB Global Agg). The CWGBI measures the performance of developed countries global fixed income markets invested in debt issues of U.S. and non-U.S.governmental entities. The LB Global Agg provides a broad-based measure of the global investment-grade fixed income markets by including agencies, corporates and asset backed issues. Performance Calculation: Preliminary data, if sonoted, reflects unreconciled data for the most recent reporting period. Portfolios are valued daily on a trade date basis and include dividends and interest as well as all realized and unrealized capital gains and losses. Return calculations at theportfolio level are time-weighted to account for periodic contributions and withdrawals. Performance results are calculated on a before tax, total return basis. Prior to July 1, 2007, portfolios were included in the Composite beginning with the firstfull quarter of performance through the last full quarter of performance. After July 1, 2007, portfolios are included in the Composite beginning with the first full month of performance through the last full month of performance. The Compositereturns consist of size-weighted portfolio returns using beginning of period values to weight the portfolio returns. Monthly linking of interim performance results is used to calculate quarterly and annual returns. Composites valuations and returnsare computed in U.S. Dollars ("USD"). The results are presented in USD or in other currencies (to accommodate overseas investors), the latter by converting monthly USD returns into other currency returns using the appropriate currencyexchange rate returns. Gross returns reflect the deduction of trading expenses. Net of fee returns reflect the deduction of trading expenses and the highest investment management fees charged within the composite membership as stated in thefee schedule below. Composite dispersion is calculated using the asset-weighted standard deviation method for all portfolios that were in the Composite for the entire year. Composite dispersion is not presented for periods with five or fewerportfolios. The number of accounts and market values are as of the end of the period. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. A complete list describing the Firms composites as well as any additional information regarding the Firm’spolicies for calculating and reporting performance results is available upon request. As a result of our internal review process during the quarter ended September 30, 2007, the performance results shown reflect certain immaterial revisions toperformance information previously reported by the Firm for periods through June 30, 2007.
