Cameron Hume selects Northern Trust for investment operations outsourcing

Investment management company Cameron Hume has appointed Northern Trust to provide full investment operations outsourcing for its assets under management on behalf of large, institutional clients.

The Edinburgh-based manager, which specialises in fixed income investment management, will also receive Northern Trust’s performance and daily risk management solutions, enabling it to make informed investment decisions that support its clients’ investment objectives.
 
“We appointed Northern Trust based on their proven expertise and experience in supporting investment managers,” says Christian Torkington (pictured), director at Cameron Hume. “From the outset, Northern Trust demonstrated a flexible transition approach, tailoring a business model that supported our risk and performance requirements and offered us the appropriate levels of transparency and control.”
 
“At Northern Trust, we believe in working closely with our asset manager clients to understand their unique requirements,” says Terri Van Praagh, head of investment operations outsourcing for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Northern Trust. “We offer support and guidance throughout the process as both as our clients’ establish themselves and take on new business.”
 
Northern Trust provides outsourcing services to some of the world’s most successful asset managers, both established and newly established. This latest appointment follows previously announced mandates including Independent Franchise Partners, which experienced the shortest launch period in the industry, and the re-appointment by Generation Investment Management.
 
“We are delighted to be appointed by Cameron Hume and look forward to working closely with them in the future,” says Laurence Everitt, head of global fund services, UK at Northern Trust “Particularly in an environment of increasingly regulatory and economic challenges we see a growing demand from asset managers for outsourcing solutions which can help reduce the administrative burden of asset management.”
