Gain the control, security and information necessary in today's complex financial markets

Northern Trust’s GFO group provides a range of asset servicing capabilities including master record-keeping, income collection, dividend payment and trade settlement across the broad spectrum of financial assets. Clients benefit from efficient processing, attentive service and consolidated information management at the click of a mouse via Wealth Passport.

With multiple asset managers, asset classes and partnerships, managing and controlling the financial information of a prosperous family can be arduous, resource heavy and very time- consuming.

Family office clients rely on Northern Trust daily, to be a dedicated resource and extension of their existing operations.

Selecting Northern Trust's GFO group provides not only a worldwide reach — but also servicing of all asset classes, and unmatched aggregation and reporting capabilities for assets held by both Northern Trust and those held by third parties — all backed by a century-long tradition of focusing on our clients’ needs first.

Building upon our custody services, Northern Trust also offers alternative asset servicing, complete data aggregation solutions, general ledger solutions, performance analysis and document management.
