Prior to this, she also led institutional business activities at Western Asset Management and worked as an investment consultant with Mercer Investment Consulting in Sydney and Melbourne.

Franklin Templeton managing director, Matthew Harrison, said Sun’s depth of relationships in the institutional market with both asset owners and consultants, and her broad experience across asset classes, would be invaluable going forward.

"We plan to further augment both our institutional and retail advisory distribution teams in the coming months, as we seek to best position our business for growth and add further capabilities to our Australian team,” he said.
