Asset management and servicing provider Northern Trust has made a series of appointments within its global capital markets business and established a capital markets client solutions team.
The firm’s capital markets business aligns execution, transactional, lending and financing solutions in equities, fixed income and derivatives, transition management, foreign exchange and securities finance. Comprising more than 500 specialist employees across nine servicing locations, it offers, the company says, “asset managers and owners a holistic approach designed to deliver greater value”.
Within the capital markets institutional equity brokerage business:
- Glenn Poulter has been named global head of integrated trading solutions (ITS). He will be based in London and report to Guy Gibson, global head of Northern Trust Capital Markets.
- Stephanie Farrell has been named head of ITS for the Americas. Based in Chicago, she was most recently the head of ITS client services for the Americas.
- Amy Thorne has been appointed as the head of ITS for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. She was most recently a senior relationship manager for ITS and continues to be based in London. Farrell and Thorne will report to Poulter.
- Jon Cherry will assume management responsibility as the head of brokerage for the Americas. Based in Chicago, he was formerly the global head of options trading.
The new capital markets client solutions team was created in response to increasing industry demand for comprehensive, sophisticated outcome-oriented front office transactional and optimization solutions. The team will bring together brokerage, securities finance, foreign exchange and other capital markets capabilities to address the challenges faced by asset managers and owners as they navigate changing economic and regulatory environments. Within the new team:
- Gerard Walsh has been appointed as the global head of client solutions for capital markets. Walsh, who was most recently the head of ITS for the EMEA region, will report to Gibson and will be based in London.
- Grant Johnsey will assume the newly created role as the head of client solutions for capital markets in the Americas. Based in Chicago, he was most recently the head of ITS for Americas and will report to Walsh.
“These changes and leadership appointments position our business to better serve our clients,” Gibson says. “They are a reflection of our ongoing investment in capital markets expertise and technology.”
