Meeting Your Fixed Income Liquidity Needs
Maximising returns while minimising costs and preserving wealth. This is the ultimate goal for most investors. Northern Trust’s Intelligent Indexing process helps investors achieve this goal through a disciplined investment approach focused on minimising tracking error and managing total costs.

Northern Trust takes a consistent approach to active fixed income management, focusing on identifying relative value at the issue and sector level, while closely monitoring and controlling portfolio risk relative to your chosen benchmark. Our emphasis on areas where we believe you will be compensated for moving away from benchmark exposure has resulted in superior risk-adjusted returns.
Our experienced team of portfolio managers is supported by our proprietary credit research, and uses state-of-the-art technology to support quantitative decision-making. Our in-house economic research group conducts extensive fundamental analysis of the domestic and international macroeconomic environments. This research is used to determine value at the sector and security level.
