About Northern Trust

Founded in Chicago in 1889, Northern Trust is one of the world’s leading financial institutions. We specialise in providing asset servicing solutions and asset management to both institutional and personal clients. The delivery of products and services to this client base is supported through a network of offices around the globe.

Based in Dublin and Limerick, Northern Trust in Ireland administers one of the most varied ranges of products in the Irish Market and forms a vital part of Northern Trust’s global presence.

For more than a century, Northern Trust has worked hard building our legacy of outstanding service, expertise and integrity. From a Chicago-based bank founded in 1889, we now have more than 20 international locations and 16,500 employees globally. We serve the world’s most-sophisticated clients – from sovereign wealth funds and the wealthiest individuals and families, to the most-successful hedge funds and corporate brands.

Our guiding principles not only survived but thrived during the Great Depression, two world wars and the 2008 financial crisis. We burnished our reputation as a global leader delivering innovative investment management, asset and fund administration, fiduciary and banking solutions enabled by sophisticated, leading technology. And through it all, we continually laid a solid, forward-looking foundation on which future generations can continue growing and achieving greater.

As of December 31, 2015, Northern Trust Corporation had:

$117 billion in banking assets
$6.1 trillion in assets under custody
$875 billion in assets under management

Northern Trust Corporation reports fourth quarter net income of $239.3 million, earnings per common share of $0.99
Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Northern Trust delivered strong performance in 2015, with net income and earnings per share increasing 20%. Our fourth quarter and full year results reflect our ongoing focus on serving the needs of our clients, while enhancing profitability and returns for our shareholders. Our return on average common equity improved to 11.5% in 2015 from 10.0% in 2014. We increased our quarterly common stock dividend by 9% to $0.36 per share and repurchased 6.9 million shares during the year, returning $830 million in capital to our common shareholders.

Revenue growth of 9% in 2015 reflects significant increases in trust, investment and other servicing fees and net interest income. Expenses increased 5%, reflecting continued strong growth in our business and ongoing investments to support technology and regulatory initiatives.”
