Growth Underscores Strategic Commitment to UK Pension Industry – Spanning Master Trusts, Corporate and Local Government Pension Schemes

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) grew its assets under custody from UK pension fund clients by more than US$72 billion in 2019 – underscoring its strategic commitment to the United Kingdom’s (UK’s) retirement industry.

The growth in 2019 was driven by both new client wins and asset inflows across 20 marquee clients – including both corporate and local government defined benefit (DB) pension schemes and defined contribution (DC) master trusts.

Mark Austin, head of United Kingdom, Institutional Investor Group at Northern Trust, comments: “Whatever the path chosen to achieve their investment objectives, Northern Trust is committed to supporting pension funds on that journey. As today’s investment environment drives change and complexity, our solutions – from outsourced financial accounting and alternatives administration to middle office services and outsourced trading – support UK pension teams with their day-to-day investment activities, governance and risk management obligations.”

Northern Trust’s Institutional Investor Group provides services to more than 270 UK pension funds with collectively more than US$851 billion in assets under custody.
