Risk and Cost Minimization

Control potential risks and associated costs while implementing your portfolio asset allocation with our expert risk mitigation techniques. Monitor expenses throughout the event through using our detailed cost analysis reports. Our experience in trading multiple asset classes will help you minimize the effects of:

  • Exposure risk – by preventing incorrect asset classes or unwanted cash exposure
  • Execution risk – by transacting in the market, for example, through information leakage or counterparty risk
  • Operational risk – by assigning a product manager to each milestone event, we anticipate risks inherent with settlement and portfolio set-up
  • Process risk – by ensuring accountability with a clearly defined project management process

Northern Trust’s heritage of risk management is built into our executions. We handle large, complex transitions with full transparency while minimizing risk and cost.

Transparent Reporting

Keep a close watch on every aspect of your transition through our suite of transparent reports that include detailed timelines, participant checklists, pre- and post-trade analysis, and daily updates. Additionally, we can complete documentation on your behalf to help ensure required accounts are open and available at the appropriate times.
