Northern Trust Asset Management strengthens public funds and Taft-Hartley team

RELATED TOPICS​

Asset manager Northern Trust Asset Management has strengthened its commitment to the public funds and Taft-Hartley community with the addition of two industry veterans to its sales team.

 
Tamara Doi Beck, director of public funds and Taft-Hartley plans, will be based out of Denver and serve the West Coast.
 
Ashley Hartman Alson, director of public funds and Taft-Hartley plans, will be based out of Dallas and serve the Southern Midwest and Southeast regions.
 
Both have significant experience developing business and managing institutional clients – Beck with 18 years and Alson with 12 years.
 
“Tamara and Ashley bring extensive capital markets expertise, client relationship management and new business development skills to an already strong client facing team within Northern Trust Asset Management,” says Bob Parise, practice lead for public funds and Taft-Hartley.
 
Most recently, Beck was a managing director responsible for new business development for such plans at Janus Capital Group. She also was director of business development for LMCG Investments, senior vice president for Neuberger Berman, and held several roles at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.
 
“Given the complex investment challenges and low-return market environment public pensions face, it is critical to have a solutions-focused conversation,” Beck says. “I am eager to connect Northern Trust Asset Management’s collaborative approach to innovation and customised solutions for the benefit of public funds’ employees and retirees. Most of my career has been dedicated to serving public fund clients and I look forward to continuing this at Northern Trust.”
 
Alson also comes from Janus Capital Group, where she served public, corporate, endowment and foundation plans as a client executive. Previously, she was a senior relationship manager for Morgan Stanley Investment Management, focusing on large corporate liquidity sales. She also held several roles at JPMorgan.
 
“Northern Trust Asset Management is built upon strength and stability,” Alson says. “Those values align with the mission of the public fund and Taft-Hartley sector, and I look forward to representing those principles in my partnership with this important pension community.”
