Credit quality is a measure of a bond issuer’s ability to repay interest and principal in a timely manner. The credit ratings shown are based on each portfolio security’s rating as provided by Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service and/or Fitch Ratings, Ltd. and typically range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest), or an equivalent and/or similar rating. For this purpose, when two or more of the agencies have assigned differing ratings to a security, the highest rating is used. Securities that are unrated by all three agencies are reflected as such. The credit quality of the investments in the Fund’s portfolio does not apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. These ratings are updated monthly and may change over time. Please note, the Fund itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency.

*** The Fund will not leverage its capital structure by issuing senior securities such as preferred shares or debt instruments. The Fund will also not borrow money for the purpose of leverage. The Fund may invest in reverse repurchase agreements and/or other instruments which can increase the risks and volatility of the Fund.

Western Asset Investment Grade Defined Opportunity Trust Inc., a non-diversified closed-end investment management company, is advised by Legg Mason Partners Fund Advisor, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc., and is sub-advised by Western Asset Management Company, an affiliate of the advisor.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. An investment in the Fund involves risk, including loss of principal. Investment return and the value of shares will fluctuate.
