Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Northern Trust's first quarter revenue increased 8% compared to one year ago, reflecting strong growth in trust, investment and other servicing fees and net interest income. Assets under custody/administration and assets under management ended the quarter up 13% and 11%, respectively, compared to a year ago, primarily driven by higher markets and our continued success in winning new business. The net interest margin on a fully taxable equivalent basis improved to 1.35% from 1.21% one year ago.
We use our strong capital position to pursue our strategic initiatives that meet our clients' complex financial needs. One recent example is our agreement to acquire UBS Asset Management’s fund administration servicing units in Luxembourg and Switzerland, which will broaden our scale, products and market reach across Europe.”
