NORTHERN TRUST CORPORATION REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER NET INCOME OF $406.4 MILLION, EARNINGS PER DILUTED COMMON SHARE OF $1.91
“Northern Trust’s performance in the fourth quarter of 2021 generated a 9% increase in revenue versus last year and a return on average common equity of 14.5%. Revenue growth reflected strong organic growth across each of our businesses, which also contributed to full year earnings growth and a return on average common equity of 13.9%. During the year we executed on our key growth initiatives and enhanced our foundational strength through advancements in our data and digital efforts, while also improving our productivity. The year also benefited from an improved outlook in projected economic conditions driving a release of reserves for credit losses.
