In today's challenging financial markets, you look for insight, opinion and reliable solutions from your investment manager. Northern Trust asset management recognises that every client is unique, so we use a special skill that's the hallmark of our investment approach - listening. We collaborate with our clients to understand their wants, needs, and long term investment goals as well as their limitations, be they by design or by governance.
Overcoming Barriers to Success
Institutional investors often omit or hastily consider an important step in the investment decision process, namely selecting and refining the respective indices to be used. In doing so, investors may be missing an opportunity to truly understand the indices they are using and the potential exposure they are receiving through fully or partially replicated portfolios.
Actively Designed, Passively Managed
At Northern Trust we offer investors the opportunity to actively design their benchmark. This allows investors to work with us to tailor their index to meet their exact requirements based on their objectives, risk tolerance, liabilities, sector or home bias and liquidity needs. Then we create a passively managed portfolio that tracks the customised index. In other words, the “active bets” or exposures are embedded in the custom benchmark, which is then passively managed.
Delivering Answers Beyond the Expected
We invite you to harness the expertise, flexibility and innovation of one of the most trusted, stable and experienced global asset managers, built from the fiduciary heritage of Northern Trust around our principles of service, expertise and integrity.
