Northern Trust Corporation 3 mins read

Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) today announced that it will provide asset servicing solutions, including global custody, fund administration and portfolio analytics services, to Equip Super, a leader in the Australian Superannuation industry. The transition of services took effect on 2 April 2024.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, Equip Super offers super, financial advice and pensions to more than 140,000 members across Australia. As of 31 March 2024, Equip Super has approximately AU$34 billion in funds under management.

“The decision by Equip Super to select Northern Trust underlines our commitment to Australia and is a testament to the breadth of our experience and expertise in providing asset servicing to Australian superannuation funds,” said Leon Stavrou, Country Executive Australia and New Zealand, Northern Trust. “We understand the unique needs of this industry and look forward to building our relationship with Equip Super as they continue to grow.”

Amidst a changing working population in Australia and a rapidly evolving financial landscape worldwide, superannuation funds may face increasing pressure to deliver value while meeting member expectations. In recent years, Equip Super has been involved in several successor fund transfers in the superannuation industry and continues to look for new growth opportunities. Equip Super was seeking a partner that could enable them to scale effectively while providing its members with a consistent service experience.

“We chose Northern Trust as our new custodian based on their global services and product offering and competitive fees. They proved to be the best match to enable us to meet our Fund’s strategic objectives and provide the best financial interest to our members,” said Marc Pizzichetta, CFO of Equip Super.

Northern Trust has an established network of offices across Asia Pacific in Beijing, Bengaluru, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Melbourne, Pune, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. It has strong relationships with some of the region’s largest central banks, sovereign wealth funds, government agencies, corporations and asset managers, offering a comprehensive range of customized asset servicing, asset management and capital markets solutions.
