Northern Trust has expanded its alternatives business development team across the UK, Ireland, Luxembourg and Channel Islands with the appointment of Edwin Parker.
In this newly created role Parker (pictured) will focus on offering Northern Trust’s hedge fund administration services and its specialist private equity, infrastructure, and real estate fund administration services to fund managers across the region.
“Fund managers are faced with a number of pressures – from generating returns for their investors to meeting new regulatory requirements, and reporting on risk management and demonstrating transparency,” says Madeleine Senior, head of sales for asset servicing at Northern Trust in EMEA. “At Northern Trust, we understand these challenges and are pleased to welcome Edwin to our growing team which provides tailored solutions and products to support these demands.”
Parker joined Northern Trust earlier this month from Butterfield Fulcrum, where he was managing director. Prior to this, he spent 12 years at SS&C Hedge Fund Services where he was business development manager for EMEA.
