Northern Trust hires head of Institutional Investor Group for UK, Ireland and Guernsey

RELATED TOPICS​

Northern Trust has appointed James Wright as head of its Institutional Investor Group (IIG) in the UK, Ireland and Guernsey.

In this newly created position, Wright will be responsible for driving the strategic direction and growth of Northern Trust’s business to meet the needs of sophisticated institutional investors and financial institutions across its pension, insurance, fiduciary and corporate client base.
 
Institutional investors, particularly asset owners, are facing significant change in light of the evolving regulatory landscape and challenging economic conditions leading to a reassessment of existing business models.
 
Wright will position Northern Trust’s institutional business to support existing and prospective clients’ future business needs through an extensive range of asset servicing, capital markets, liquidity and data solutions.
 
Wright’s appointment follows closely the hiring of Ian Hamilton as sales manager for Northern Trust’s asset servicing business.
 
Wright joins Northern Trust from JP Morgan where he was most recently head of sales and relationship management responsible for developing outsourced asset management relationships.
 
“We are thrilled to have James join our team to drive our strategy forward and ensure we are ready to help our institutional clients achieve their goals of enhanced efficiency, improved performance and first class governance,” says Penelope Biggs, head of IIG for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Northern Trust. “We understand the pressures institutional investors are facing – particularly asset owners who manage their assets in house. Our capabilities and approach to managing relationships, coupled with James’ experience in back and middle office solutions, will ensure we are well placed to support our clients’ strategic aspirations and practical business needs.”
