The Fund offers portfolio of MLPs that may benefit from the growing production and usage of natural gas.
The Fund’s investment objective is to provide a high level of total return, consisting of cash distributions and capital appreciation. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.
The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily in MLPs. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its Managed Assets in U.S. based energy MLPs. Currently, the Fund intends to focus its investments on MLPs that, in ClearBridge’s opinion, are poised to benefit from the growing production and usage of natural gas, while minimizing exposure to commodity price fluctuations. The Fund considers investments in MLPs to include investments that offer economic exposure to public and private MLPs in the form of MLP equity securities, securities of entities holding primarily general partner or managing member interests in MLPs, securities that are derivatives of interests in MLPs, including I-Shares, exchange-traded funds that primarily hold MLP interests and debt securities of MLPs. Energy entities are engaged in the business of exploring, developing, producing, gathering, transporting, processing, storing, refining, distributing, mining or marketing natural gas, natural gas liquids (including propane), crude oil, refined petroleum products or coal. “Managed Assets” means net assets plus the amount of any borrowings and assets attributable to any preferred stock of the Fund that may be outstanding. Currently, the Fund has no intention of issuing preferred stock.
