Maple-Brown Abbott, the A$14 billion Australian-based investment manager, has appointed Northern Trust to provide global custody, middle office trade matching, fund administration, foreign exchange and associated services for its global investment products and portfolios after a competitive tender process.

Richard Grundy, Chief Operating Officer, Maple-Brown Abbott, said: "Northern Trust's long-term experience in delivering asset services to leading investment managers, its global operating platform and the firm's demonstrable excellence in client service, made them an obvious choice.

"Added to this, the company's culture and integrity is complementary to our own values and needs. With our investment portfolio spanning multiple international jurisdictions and investment classes, our partnership with Northern Trust will ensure we continue to deliver value for our investors."

In addition to this appointment, Maple-Brown Abbott Funds plc has named Northern Trust as administrator and depositary for its US$600 million Irish-domiciled UCITS funds.
