Legg Mason’s Nachtwey Says Firm Looking to Make Acquisitions

June 06, 2012

Legg Mason Inc. (LM:US) is looking to make acquisitions of international, equity and alternative businesses, said Chief Financial Officer Peter Nachtwey.

The Baltimore-based money manager has $700 million to deploy for potential investments and will look to do “lift-outs and bolt-ons” rather than transformational deals, Nachtwey said today at the KBW Asset Management Conference in New York.
