Asset manager Legg Mason's profit more than doubles on lower costs

May 1 (Reuters) - Asset manager Legg Mason Inc’s quarterly profit more than doubled as investors poured more money into its funds and expenses fell.

Operating expenses fell about 10 percent to $562.05 million.

As of March 31, net client cash flows were $8.3 billion. (Reporting by Avik Das in Bangalore; Editing by Maju Samuel)
