NORTHERN TRUST CORPORATION REPORTS FIRST QUARTER NET INCOME OF $375.1 MILLION, EARNINGS PER DILUTED COMMON SHARE OF $1.70
“Northern Trust’s asset and fee growth performed well as we continued to navigate through the operational and low interest rate challenges posed by the COVID-19 global pandemic. Revenue was consistent with the prior year, as declines in net interest income and trading related revenue were offset by a 6% increase in trust, investment and other servicing fees, primarily driven by organic growth. In support of our growth, expense increased 5%. Our strong capital base and liquidity position enabled us to support the needs of our clients, and this was demonstrated further during the quarter as we saw continued growth in client activity. The quarter also benefited from an improved outlook in projected economic conditions driving a release of reserves for credit losses, all of which combined to achieve 4% growth in net income and 9% growth in diluted earnings per common share versus last year and a return on average common equity of 13.7%. Performance reflected continued excellent work by Northern Trust employees worldwide to serve the needs of our clients. We continued to focus on enhancing efficiency and investing for future profitable growth.”
