Northern Trust reports that it has established a dedicated options trading desk within its institutional brokerage business, expanding its global capabilities in response to growing demand from asset owners and asset managers. It says the Chicago-based options desk provides institutional clients globally with options trading and streamlined reporting for prime brokerage.

"As sophisticated investors navigate fluctuating markets, Northern Trust continues to broaden our capabilities to increase speed, provide transparency and manage market impact, all of which can contribute to investment performance results," said Guy Gibson, Global Head of Institutional Brokerage.

"This new options trading desk demonstrates our commitment to meet the evolving needs of asset manager and asset owner clients who seek tailored solutions to manage risk and portfolio exposures efficiently across global markets."

Options trading at Northern Trust is offered through an agency model with no principal trading operation in order to drive alignment with client interests and best execution practices. Through its proprietary network, Northern Trust provides clients with access to deep pockets of diversified liquidity over a range of trading venues, while working to maintain as low a market impact as possible.
