Northern Trust follows a focused business strategy and we diligently implement our plan to grow assets under management in the coming years. Our risk-controlled, conservative approach to managing our firm combined with our unique corporate culture is key in driving the growth of our business.
A factor that we consider a key differentiator from our competitors is our client service ethos that has been at the core of the Northern Trust corporate culture for over 125 years. We believe that future growth will not only be fuelled by investment returns but also by creating a favourable client experience.
Our future business strategy includes the continued development of resources and we have committed to upgrade our risk management, investment and client servicing technology.
Our client segment focuses on institutional markets including Pension Plans, Central Banks, Insurance companies, Sovereign Entities, and other large Financial Institutions. Our decision to place our sales professionals in the local markets allows us to get closer to our clients and prospects and understand their objectives.
We capture the themes of:
- evolving capital markets and expectations of low growth, low rates and higher volatility.
- changing client needs encompassing new definitions of risk which include governance, fiduciary and reputation risk and well as seeking integration of Responsible Investing (i.e. ESG) in portfolio construction.
- Increasing regulatory environment and the indirect effects to both managers and investors of the myriad of new regulations (ranging from Basel III, Solvency II, AIFMD and FATCA).
