The government of Jersey has appointed Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) to provide data, analytics and consolidated reporting to GB£3.2 billion (US$4.9 billion) in assets.
The States of Jersey, the government of Jersey, appointed Northern Trust to support their requirements for data, analytics and consolidated reporting, following a competitive tender to provide record master record keeping across the States of Jerseys Common Investment Fund, the Jersey Teachers Superannuation Fund, and the States of Jersey Public Employees Contributory Retirement Scheme. The appointment adds to Northern Trusts existing mandates to provide custody, investment accounting and performance services for the States of Jerseys Common Investment Fund (CIF) and the Jersey Teachers Superannuation Fund.
We are pleased to appoint Northern Trust which demonstrated they could support our unique and evolving requirements, said Laura Rowley, treasurer of the States of Jersey. Northern Trusts customised solution, which included accounting, performance measurement, and compliance monitoring across all of our entities, is supported by their ability to look through to our underlying holdings within our pooled funds and provide better reporting and risk analysis.
Our pension fund clients face increased challenges and regulatory pressures to provide a consistent and consolidated view of all their assets, said Douglas Gee, head of UK sales for the institutional investor group at Northern Trust. We continue to see demand for timely, accurate and independently valued data, in some cases regardless of their other existing custodian arrangements.
By leveraging both our experience servicing multinational organisations and our global operating platform and reporting portal, Passport®, we are able to support States of Jerseys consolidated reporting needs, he added.
Northern Trust provides custody and related services to approximately 34 percent of the top 200 pension funds in the UK and 36 percent of all UK Local Government Pension Schemes. Earlier this year, Northern Trust announced it had added more than US$80 billion in assets under custody on behalf of new UK pension fund clients over the past three years.
