“The North American award category was a particularly competitive one, with a number of powerful players making impressive submissions,” said Yuri Bender, Editor in Chief of Professional Wealth Management. “The judges chose Northern Trust as the winner for factors including a fiduciary mindset that attempts to put the client first, its family focus and investment in customer-facing technology.”
“We are deeply honored to receive this recognition,” said Sherry Barrat, president of Northern Trust Personal Financial Services. “Our clients place a high premium on trusted advice, transparency, and financial strength – principles that have been at the core of Northern Trust over its 120-year history. We are passionate about placing our clients at the center of everything we do, and helping them reach their financial goals.”
The award, one of several Global Private Banking inaugural awards, was presented by Professional Wealth Management and The Banker, at an Oct. 27 ceremony in Geneva. Private banks and wealth managers worldwide entered the awards and winners were selected following examination of quantitative and qualitative aspects of the private banking/wealth management business.
