We tend to be a large shareowner (top 20 owner in over 350 stocks) and invest in our portfolio companies for very long periods of time (ClearBridge average holding period is 7 years) and so engagement helps to confirm and reiterate our full understanding of the company's impact to society, growth strategy, quality of management, and view of their business operations for future generations, as well as other areas of discussion. In addition, we track all of our engagements (over 1,000 per year in our offices) and measure the progress of our engagements over many years.
