Choosing an administrative partner shouldn’t be a choice between technology and service – you need both.  Moreover, you want a partner that adapts to your process, not the other way around.  

At Northern Trust Hedge Fund Services, we provide a service experience that is similar to the personal relationships you associate with in-house operations, but with the technology, scale, and reach of a leading global provider.   

Service teams include experts with deep experience working for and with investment managers, with technology that enables them to tailor how we serve you to match how you operate.  We become an extension of your business, and we strive to support your strategy, and your process just as well as if we were an on-premise team.  Clients attest that it’s that service experience – with people who know the industry - and know them personally - that sets working with Northern Trust apart.
