US-based Northern Trust has been granted
approval by Swedish and UK authorities to expand asset management
services to serve clients across the Nordic region, as part of the
strategy to grow its business across Europe.

The licence received from the Swedish
Financial Supervisory Authority and the UK Financial Services
allows the bank to offer asset management products and services to
investors across the Nordic region, directly from its Stockholm
office.

The approval comes after the bank recently announced it will
offer asset management solutions to clients across Benelux
(Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg), from its Amsterdam
office.

 

Serving clients better

The Stockholm office first opened in September 2009 to offer
asset servicing products and services to its Nordic clients.
