We are delighted to announce the addition of the Legg Mason Clearbridge US Equity Sustainability Leaders fund into our Academy of Funds, with a Responsible Positive Prospect Rating.

This addition broadens out our responsible research coverage and the fund enters the Academy of Funds with our highest ESG integration assessment. Furthermore, it marks our first responsibly rated North American equity fund. We think this is a compelling option for investors seeking to gain exposure to US listed companies through a strategy where the managers invest in businesses that take ESG factors seriously, whilst avoiding those that do not.
