Northern Trust hires State Street’s Nigel Tyler

Northern Trust has added a senior index equity portfolio manager to its London office as the asset manager continues to grow its global index portfolio management team.

Nigel Tyler will oversee passive global equity portfolios for Northern Trust’s clients in Europe, Middle East and Africa (Emea). The firm’s London office runs a number of index strategies, such as developed and emerging market equities, futures and currency overlay and small cap equities.

Tyler joins the firm from State Street Global Advisors, where he was a senior portfolio manager for global equity beta solutions.

Nick Dymond, head of index equity portfolio management in Emea at Northern Trust, says: “[Tyler’s] appointment will help to further strengthen our index equity offering to clients at a time when demand for index management continues to grow.” (article continues below)

Northern Trust runs index portfolio management services out of its Chicago, Hong Kong London and Tokyo office. The company announced a number of appointments to the Hong Kong team last year.
