Northern Trust has hired Tony Glickman in a global client solutions role focusing on its hedge fund services, custody, banking and operations platform on behalf of asset managers and institutional investors worldwide.
Glickman (pictured) has more than 30 years of financial market-related experience as a banker, treasurer, hedge fund manager and, most recently, as head of risk services for GlobeOp Financial Services.
In his new role, Glickman will engage with clients to develop solutions that combine Northern Trust's capabilities in global custody, risk analytics and sophisticated reporting with the technology and expertise of Northern Trust Hedge Fund Services.
"Tony Glickman brings a diverse experience set and record of accomplishment in financial markets that he has successfully used to create analytic tools and services for portfolio managers, asset servicers, and investors," says Steven L. Fradkin, president of corporate and institutional services at Northern Trust. "Tony's extraordinarily broad background will help Northern Trust clients take full advantage of our global platform to help them manage risk and capture opportunities worldwide."
In a career spanning three decades, Glickman has worked as a proprietary trader at the former Bankers Trust and Chemical Bank, served as head of proprietary trading, treasurer and head of portfolio risk management at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), launched and led bank-sponsored and independent funds specialising in bond arbitrage, volatility-arbitrage and global macro strategies, and served as a consultant to asset managers, public pension funds, central bankers and regulators on strategic risk management issues.
At GlobeOp Financial Services, Glickman developed risk capabilities and investor reporting tools, including Form PF reporting.
"Northern Trust offers a unique value proposition to global investors that combines precise, high-volume processing and analytics developed for hedge funds with a worldwide technology and operations platform and unparalleled client service," Glickman says. "I am excited about our opportunities to create innovative solutions for asset managers, sovereign wealth funds and other sophisticated investors."
