The Legg Mason Global Growth and Income Portfolio is a diversified equity portfolio which uses a combination of Legg Mason Exchange Traded Funds in order to meet its objectives of balancing growth, income, and portfolio risk. The portfolio seeks to provide a balanced exposure across growth, value, infrastructure, international and emerging market equities and fixed income securities. The result is a diversified portfolio that seeks income that is higher than its benchmark, while pursuing growth at a reasonable risk level.


The portfolio invests solely in Legg Mason ETFs managed by Legg Mason affiliates. The portfolio’s strategic asset allocation is updated on an annual basis. The portfolio will be rebalanced monthly.

The portfolio:
• Provides a diversified allocation to active Legg Mason strategies with the ability to select securities with both high income levels and quality fundamentals.

• Provides dedicated exposure to “ESG” focused ETFs actively investing in companies that apply environmental, social and governance principles while promoting the investment objective of the underlying strategy (i.e., seeking growth and income).

• Only selects investment strategies managed by firms who are current signatories to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI). Signatories of the UN PRI are among a broad list of organizations around the world that have publicly demonstrated their commitment to responsible investment.

• Utilizes a quantitative proprietary process, seeking an optimal allocation from an underlying exposure perspective in order to increase likelihood that the strategy meets its objectives (income and capital appreciation).

  • All performance information is of the Portfolio Manager account, net of the current management fee. Client account performance could differ. A client invested when a higher management fee applied experienced lower returns than displayed here. This information was calculated up to April 13, 2021. Performance, composition and volatility could vary significantly from that of the benchmark(s), which are provided for illustrative purposes only.

Important Information
  1. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and all investments, including those in this portfolio, involve the risk of loss, including loss of principal and a reduction in earnings.
  2. Interactive Advisors’ Legg Mason Global Growth and Income Portfolio is made up of whole and/or fractional holdings of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). The portfolio itself is not an ETF or Mutual Fund. Clients choosing to invest in this portfolio directly own the ETF shares making up the portfolio.
  3. Interactive Advisors constructs and manages this portfolio on a discretionary basis using a model ETF portfolio provided under a licensing agreement by Legg Mason Private Portfolio Group, LLC and its affiliated sub-adviser, QS Investors, LLC (collectively, “Legg Mason”).
  4. To invest in one of the Asset Allocation portfolios, Interactive Advisors clients must:
    • Sign an Investment Management Agreement with and become clients of Interactive Advisors;
    • Consent to trading with another Interactive Brokers LLC client who is a liquidity provider in order to be able to buy and sell fractions of ETF shares and stocks, which do not trade on the open market. Clients may revoke this consent at any time but, if they do, they will no longer be able to invest in any of these portfolios. (Clients can see these fractional trades with the liquidity provider listed and identified on the periodic activity statements they receive from Interactive Brokers LLC); and
    • Obtain the minimum risk score required for each portfolio and acknowledge certain risk disclosures.
  5. Interactive Advisors manages this portfolio by trading its own funds in a separate firm-owned brokerage account and replicating this trading in the accounts of investing clients as follows:
    • Interactive Advisors funds and trades its own funds in a separate brokerage account associated with each portfolio;
    • Interactive Advisors replicates the trading in these brokerage accounts in the accounts of clients investing in each specific portfolio in order to implement its replication-based investment process; and
    • Based on data received from Legg Mason, Interactive Advisors periodically rebalances these portfolios.
  6. This portfolio is not in any way recommended to Interactive Advisors clients by Legg Mason. Neither Legg Mason nor any of its advisory affiliates provide any investment advice or recommendation in relation to this portfolio and are not acting as an investment adviser or fiduciary to Interactive Advisors clients. Legg Mason has built the model portfolio without regard to the individual financial circumstances and objectives of any investor or Interactive Advisors client.
  7. Under the governing agreement, Legg Mason may cease providing or modify the model portfolio and liquidate any of the underlying ETFs at any time. Legg Mason may also terminate the governing agreement with a 90-day notice. Interactive Advisors will notify all affected clients invested in these portfolios of any such termination as soon as possible to allow them to identify suitable alternative investments on the platform or elsewhere. Those considering investing in this portfolio should bear these limitations in mind when deciding whether to invest in this portfolio, which may become unavailable in the future.
  8. All ETFs in this portfolio are Legg Mason ETFs (managed by Legg Mason and its affiliates). There may be similar ETFs with higher ratings, lower fees and expenses, substantially better performance or more attractive yield/risk profiles in the market. Because Legg Mason and its affiliates earn fees for advisory, administrative and other services from these ETFs, Legg Mason has an incentive to include ETFs with higher costs and fees in this portfolio. Additional information on the Legg Mason ETFs included in this portfolio, including their investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses can be found in the prospectus for each ETF.
  9. For a detailed discussion of the risks associated with investing in the Legg Mason ETF Portfolio, please review this risk disclosure.
  10. Clients may restrict any of the securities traded in their account, but should note that any restrictions they place on their investments could affect the performance of their account leading it to perform differently, worse or better, than (a) Interactive Advisors' account managing the portfolio or (b) other client accounts invested in the same portfolio.
  11. Monthly rebalances in this portfolio will result in numerous transactions in many or all the ETFs in the portfolio and client accounts invested in this portfolio. Clients will incur transaction costs for any trading in their account (including periodic rebalance trades) such as commissions payable to Interactive Brokers LLC, Interactive Advisors' affiliated broker-dealer, which is a conflict of interest. Clients could be required to report some or all of these periodic rebalance trades on their tax forms. Clients should consult an accountant or tax attorney on tax matters as Interactive Advisors does not provide tax advice or prepare tax documents for its clients. Interactive Brokers LLC provides certain tools to assist you with your tax filings, but these tools may only be able to support a limited number of trades.
  12. In addition to Interactive Advisors' management fees and Interactive Brokers LLC commissions, clients will also be charged management fees and other expenses (custodian fees, brokerage commissions, and legal and accounting fees) by the ETF issuers.
  13. There is no guarantee or assurance that the methodology used to create the underlying model will result in the portfolio or client investments achieving high or even positive returns. Also, while Interactive Advisors aims to track the model portfolio as closely as possible, it makes no guarantee that it will succeed in doing so, or that it will achieve the same performance for clients as the account managing the portfolio has achieved. Those considering investments in this portfolio should note that there may be similar offerings in the marketplace (i.e., portfolios or investments seeking to track similar model portfolios), which may charge lower management fees.
  14. None of the performance information displayed on this page is based on the actual performance of any Interactive Advisors client account investing in this portfolio. The performance in an Interactive Advisors client account invested in this portfolio may differ (i.e., be lower or higher) from the performance of the Interactive Advisors account managing this portfolio and portrayed on this page based on a variety of factors, such as trading restrictions imposed by the client (resulting in different account holdings), time of initial investment, amount of investment, frequency and size of cash flows in and out of the client account, applicable brokerage commissions, and different corporate actions. Clients investing in this portfolio may view the actual performance of their investment in this portfolio by logging into their Interactive Advisors account and reviewing their customized dashboard.
  15. This portfolio was launched on Interactive Advisors on January 11, 2019. On that date, Interactive Advisors started trading its own funds in a brokerage account trading this strategy. This portfolio was opened to client investments on March 19, 2019.
  16. All graph data is as of the end of day for the referenced period, unless otherwise specified. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to invest in a particular portfolio.
