UK - Northern Trust has appointed William A. Misata Jr as vice president, relationship management within the Global Fund Services (GFS) team.
Based in London, Misata will report directly to Toby Glaysher, senior vice president, global fund services.
Misata will be responsible for a number of Northern Trust's key fund manager relationships. He will also oversee the integration of the client service team from Barings Asset Management's Financial Services Group (FSG), following its acquisition by Northern Trust in March.
He joins from BISYS fund services where he was a senior relationship manager. Prior to BISYS, he was vice president, senior relationship manager for JP Morgan London.
Commenting on Misata's appointment, Toby Glaysher said: I am delighted to welcome Will to Northern Trust at such an exciting and important time in the development of our GFS business. He comes to us with a high level of client relationship management expertise which will be invaluable as we integrate FSG into Northern Trust.
Misata added: This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to working with Northern Trust and its clients. The integration period of any major acquisition is a critical time and the alignment of the two client service teams is essential as we strive to ensure we maintain the highest client service standards.
