GLOBAL - Northern Trust has developed Global Investor Passport (GIP), a customised information tool for institutional clients.
The product aims to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for information as well as daily access, analysis and monitoring of multiple data sources impacting institutional portfolios.
GIP bundles frequently required information into a Q&A format allowing investors to drill down and view daily performance, exposure, transaction, and asset information on all of their accounts, said Northern.
The tool also allows access to underlying account information, including fundamental risk characteristics such as industry/sector, country, and currency as well as the ability to quantify total combined exposure to a particular security, industry or geographic region.
