Northern Trust offers new compliance monitoring capabilities
Naperville-based Northern Trust has improved its post-trade compliance platform with the aim of offering institutional investors with flexibility and control to monitor their investment activities across portfolios, which would be provided to investors globally.
The organization’s Investment Risk and Analytical Services group provides an enhancement that would present a new version of its proprietary automated monitoring system Compliance Analyst, and its online reporting and workflow tool Compliance Radar.
“This redesign of our compliance monitoring capability helps our clients achieve their governance and investment compliance objectives in the most efficient and effective way,” Ian Castledine, global head of IRAS product management at Northern Trust, said. “Used alongside our extensive range of investment risk and performance analytical tools, this offers a step-change in how clients can monitor, manage and understand the full scope of their investment activities.”
Northern Trust’s global asset owner customers, including public institutions, pension funds and insurance firms, can use this technology to check their manager’s compliance with prescribed rules and know the reasons behind any investment policy breaches.
