London, March 16, 2017 —

Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) announced today that it has appointed Katharine Morris as head of sales of its Global Fund Services business in the United Kingdom.

Based in London, Morris is responsible for offering investment operations outsourcing, fund administration and the full range of asset servicing solutions, to investment managers domiciled in the UK.

Morris joins Northern Trust from HSBC Securities Servicing where she was Head of UK Sales. Prior to that, she spent over a decade at State Street holding various roles, including global relationship manager. She brings almost 20 years of financial services experience to Northern Trust and reports to Douglas Gee, head of sales for Northern Trust’s asset servicing business in EMEA.
