DUBLIN -- June 24, 2013

Citi has been appointed by Janus Global Capital Group (“Janus”) to provide a
suite of global custody and trustee services for its Dublin-registered funds.
This new mandate extends Citi’s existing relationship with Janus for which
Citi provides fund administration, accounting, and transfer agency services.

Global fund managers are continually seeking out new markets for investment
opportunities and are looking to develop products that offer access to
different geographical areas, especially emerging markets. Citi’s
recently-launched Network 3.0 is a suite of investor service solutions that
helps clients like Janus extend their reach and expand their business by
leveraging its global network in over 95 countries and its on-the-ground local
market expertise.

“We chose to broaden our relationship with Citi because we are seeking to
expand the investment opportunities for our UCITs fund into new markets,” said
George S. Batejan, Executive Vice President, Global Head of Technology and
Operations, Janus. “We are impressed with the insights and efficiencies gained
through Citi’s Network 3.0 and believe it will aid us in effectively
implementing strategies in the markets that afford us the most potential."

Core to Citi’s Network 3.0 is the Integrated Custody program that will enhance
technical platforms and reengineer operational processes to deliver top-tier
levels of service including: real-time deadlines, 24-hour instruction
processing and improved risk management.

“Network 3.0 leverages Citi’s global network by providing a connected gateway
offering increased efficiency and information that enables local access on a
global basis,” said Chandresh Iyer, Managing Director, Investor Services,
Securities and Fund Services at Citi. "Leading firms like Janus recognize the
value of Citi’s global network and integrated solutions to unlock their
investment potential and generate growth. We look forward to providing Janus
with a top-tier, end-to-end fund administration and custody services
solution."

Citi provides a full range of investor services that are adapted to client
needs for efficiency, transparency and risk management. Clients have the
flexibility to establish custody accounts at the segregated level or in an
omnibus structure.

investor that combines specialized expertise, comprehensive capabilities and
