A Legg Mason Unit Gets a Mention in WSJ

News summary by MFWire's editors

The Wall Street Journal's Min Zeng profiled Legg Mason [profile] unit Western Asset Management Co. and love of fixed-income assets. As investor concern about rising interest rates continues to fester, the unit has continued to buy U.S fixed-income such as longer-dated treasury bonds between mid-June and mid-July, Zeng writes. Western Asset Management also bought high yield corporate bonds and mortgage-backed bonds not tied to Fannie May and Freddie Mac, Zeng reports.
