Northern Trust has announced from Basel the appointment of Gil Platteau to the senior leadership team of Northern Trust in Switzerland. It says this key hire underscores its continuing strategic focus and growth strategy in Switzerland.

Based in Basel, Platteau will manage key client relationships with Swiss pension funds and insurance companies, and support Northern Trust's focus on expanding the footprint of the business in the country.

With close to 20 years of industry experience, Platteau has held senior roles at Rothschild Asset Management, Barclays and, latterly Mercer Delegated Solutions, where he was country head of Switzerland. Platteau also previously worked in risk management at the Treasury and Pension Fund of F Hoffman-La Roche and at BNP Paribas (Switzerland) in Basel.
