Northern Trust has been named Best Private Bank in the USA for the sixth consecutive year by Professional Wealth Management (PWM) and The Banker magazines, both published by The Financial Times Group. Northern Trust, a leading provider of Wealth Management services for affluent individuals, families and family offices, was also named Best Private Bank for Socially Responsible Investing.

“The 15 judges who assessed our Awards’ entrants considered Northern Trust to be one of the leading institutions in terms of innovation, client-centered strategy and quality of advisers,” said PWM Editor in Chief Yuri Bender, one of the judges. “While the customer service standards and investment strategies of competitor firms in the U.S. are improving, Northern Trust is still managing to stay at the head of the pack.”

“Client needs continue to grow in complexity as they strive to balance their banking, brokerage, planning, fiduciary, philanthropic, investment management and other needs in the context of an ever-changing economic backdrop,” Northern Trust Wealth Management President Steven L. Fradkin said. “We are gratified to receive these awards, which reflect our commitment to service, expertise and integrity in support of our clients and across economic cycles and generations.”

The awards were presented by PWM and The Banker at an October 29 ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland. An international panel of industry professionals judged the submissions and selected winners based on an examination of quantitative and qualitative factors.
