Mirae Asset selects Citi as custodian

Korean asset manager Mirae Asset Global Investments has appointed Citi Australia as its provider of custody and fund administration services for its Australian traditional fund business.

Earlier this year, Mirae appointed former ETF Securities chief executive Kris Walesby as chief executive of its new Australian team.

Walesby said he was delighted to partner with Citi toward its strategy of growth in the Australian market.
