Citi Awarded Mandate From Franklin Templeton To Provide Trustee, Custody And Transfer Agent Services

Citi was appointed by Franklin Templeton Investments (Asia) Limited (“Franklin Templeton”) to provide trustee, custody and transfer agent services in support of the launch of its inaugural Templeton China Opportunities Fund in Hong Kong.
