“In the decade since the awards have been running, pension scheme managers have begun operating in much more strenuous conditions,” said Raquel Pichardo-Allison, editor of Global Pensions magazine. “In recognition of this, the awards have continued to evolve to include new categories this year. This year we have been particularly impressed by the high quality of entries across all categories and congratulate Northern Trust on their achievement.”
“Northern Trust is delighted to receive this award,” said Penelope Biggs, head of the Institutional Investor Group for Europe Middle East and Africa. “In 2010, our global pension fund assets under custody grew by over 10 percent and we now provide asset servicing solutions to 47 percent of the top 200 US pension plans and 34 percent of the top 200 UK pension schemes. We understand our pension clients’ broadening risk management requirements and continue to accelerate product development to provide tools to assist risk management. Our Retirement Solutions Practice was set up to cater to the increasing demands from our pension fund clients for advice and information on regulatory issues, challenges and trends in the pensions market and we continue to run an ongoing programme of pension communications to support our clients’ evolving needs.”
