Northern Trust, a leading provider of wealth management services, has been named “Best Private Bank in the U.S.” by Professional Wealth Management and The Banker magazines, publications of the Financial Times Group. Northern Trust was also named “Best Private Bank in the U.S. for Family Offices.”
“Northern Trust has continued to enhance its business through the Covid pandemic, conscious that many clients are rethinking their goals and wealth plans,” Professional Wealth Management Editor-in-Chief Yuri Bender said. “This innovative, yet traditional, wealth manager has boosted its data gathering operation, ensuring that advice to clients is increasingly grounded in research. The judges also noted the continuing improvement of the Goals Driven Wealth Management framework, to which a raft of new digital features and tools has been added.”
“We are pleased to receive this recognition, which reflects our holistic approach to wealth management as we serve family offices, family foundations, high-net-worth individuals, and private trust and investment companies in more than 25 countries,” Northern Trust Wealth Management President Steven L. Fradkin said. “The key to our success is our clients’ success, and we seek to exceed expectations by providing clients with personalized advice at the moments they need it most.
“The global pandemic revealed the power of our ‘prepare don’t predict’ philosophy, and underscored the importance of having a plan grounded in long-term goals that can adapt to changing circumstances.”
In addition to the “Best Private Bank in the U.S.” award, Northern Trust was recognized for its Global Family and Private Investment Offices (GFO). Founded in 1982, Northern Trust's GFO group has a focused commitment to families of significant wealth, their private foundations and the family offices that serve them.
