Transition Management


A customised plan to restructure your assets

At Northern Trust we believe a successful transition management service is one combining team expertise with a world class methodology around strategy design and execution.

Critical to the delivery of any transition or restructure is the ability to project manage the entire experience in order to provide a fully integrated experience to your organisation.

The key areas for your consideration when choosing a transition manager, namely:

The Team
At Northern Trust we select, structure and develop our team to provide you with a depth of expertise, complete client focus and a risk-focused approach.

The Methodology
We pride ourselves in developing a truly customised strategy for any assignment that delivers cost efficiency whilst minimising your financial and operational risks from commencement to completion.

Project Management
Our transition management team will manage the entire assignment; engaging the different parties and working within the current processes of your organisation to ensure a smooth but transparent implementation.

Risk Management, Compliance and Reporting
Completion of a successful transition is not only about ensuring an efficient process but also minimising risk and providing complete transparency before, during and after the event.

Northern Trust has been assisting and managing client restructures since 1987, and transition management is recognised by senior management as a core offering to our client base.

We would be delighted to discuss any aspect of Northern Trust's transition management service or provide further information that you may require.
