ClearBridge Var Small Cap Growth
Objective And StrategyObjective
Long-term growth of capital.
The fund invests at least 80% of net assets in common stocks of small-capitalization U.S. companies.
* This portfolio invests (or may invest) in securities of companies with micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization. Any investment in micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization companies involves greater risk than that customarily associated with investments in larger, more established companies because of the greater business risks of smaller size, limited markets and financial resources, narrower product lines, and frequent lack of management depth. As such, micro- or small-cap companies may be more subject to erratic and abrupt market movements than securities of larger, more established companies.
* This Fund may invest in publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks. Investments in common stocks are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time.
* Generally, a security is liquid if the Portfolio is able to sell the security at a fair price within a reasonable time. Liquidyt is generally related to the market trading volume for a particular security.
* Under certain market conditions, growth investments have performed better during the later stages of economic expansion and value investments have performed best during periods of economic recovery. Therefore, these investing styles may over time go in and out of favor. At times when the investing style used by the Fund is out of favor, the Fund may underperform other equity funds that use different investing styles.
