ClearBridge American Energy MLP Fund Inc. Portfolio Composition as of September 30, 2017

NEW YORK, Nov 07, 2017 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

ClearBridge American Energy MLP Fund Inc. (NYSE:CBA) announces its portfolio composition as of September 30, 2017.

Investment Objective: The Fund seeks to provide a high level of total return, with an equal emphasis on current distributions and capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy: The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily in US-based master limited partnerships ("MLPs") in the energy sector. Initially, the Fund intends to focus its investments on MLPs that, in the Fund's opinion, are poised to benefit from the growing production and usage of natural gas, while minimizing exposure to commodity price fluctuations. 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.
