Emotomy® Continues to Modernize Platform Offerings

CHICAGO – Emotomy, part of Northern Trust Asset Management®, announced today a redesign of its award-winning, institutional-caliber digital investment platform.

With a powerful portfolio engine, paperless automation, seamless integration with custodians, and a management oversight feature, Emotomy enables financial professionals to provide scalable, personalized advice to their clients by offering a highly customizable digital platform.
