Northern Trust has hired a senior alternatives funds sales expert from SS&C Technologies to spearhead sales across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
Edwin Chan joins Northern Trust as a senior vice president in business development, in which he will focus on accelerating sales for the custodian’s alternative asset servicing capabilities across private equity, real estate, infrastructure, renewable energy and debt funds.
Chan joins from SS&C GlobeOp where he was a senior director in business development for just under a year.
“We are delighted to announce Chan’s appointment as we continue to expand our capabilities and our leadership in our alternatives business, which supports over US$1 trillion in assets on behalf of global asset managers and asset owners,” said Clive Bellows, head of Global Fund Services for EMEA, Northern Trust.
Based in London, Chan will report to John Grundy, institutional sales manager for Northern Trust’s Corporate and Institutional Services (C&IS) business in EMEA.
