Legg Mason, through its subsidiaries QS Investors, LLC and Legg Mason Investor Services, LLC, will work with TFI to transfer program assets, records, and management responsibilities while continuing to provide services under the terms of the services agreement on a transition basis, until such time as the transfer is completed. The goal of the parties is to complete the transfer in or about June 2021.
