Northern Trust has hired Mat Cook and Rob Dixon to its capital markets business, both joining from State Street.
Cook would lead their transition management offering across Asia-Pacific in their Sydney office, having spent the last nine years as a transition manager at State Street.
Dixon would join the team of transition management experts in London, after having most recently also worked at State Street in Sydney as a transition manager, with responsibilities across Asia-Pacific.
With over 14 years of experience, Dixon would now support the evolving requirements of Northern Trust’s expanding range of clients across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Ben Jenkins, global head of transition management at Northern Trust Capital Markets, said establishing their transition management footprint in Australia further extended their global capabilities.
“Today’s uncertain, often complex environment means our clients require sophisticated, bespoke solutions for their portfolio transitions,” Jenkins said.
“With trading desks in Chicago, London and now Sydney, Northern Trust is ideally-placed to support our clients’ strategies ever more closely – in their home markets and globally.”
