Achieve your organization’s risk-adjusted investment goals

Short-term cash flow needs can divert focus from your organization’s long-term investment strategy. Northern Trust will work with you to establish a cash management strategy tailored to your organization’s unique needs, then develop an investment program that matches your risk tolerance.


Northern Trust’s Foundation & Institutional Advisors can develop an investment program that matches your spending policy, annual draw and risk/return profile. The peace of mind you’ll get means you can fully devote your time and energy on to what is most important – achieving your organization’s mission.

  • Investment strategy 
    Align your financial goals with your mission and policies. 
  • Investment program design 
    Develop a diversified plan that may blend active and passive investment strategies to help support your short-term cash flow needs and seeks to maximize long-term returns.
  • Program implementation 
    Put the optimal combination of managers to work (active, passive and/or mix) in constructing each asset class with a mix of risk and risk control.
  • Monitoring and continuous evaluation 
    You’ll receive regular reviews of performance versus benchmarks. We’ll bring you new ideas and rebalance periodically.
