  Risk Analytics On Demand Offered by Northern Trust

     Solution Supports Demand for Predictive Risk Tools; Clients include
               International Fund for Agricultural Development

Business Wire

LONDON -- December 17, 2012

In line with an increasing trend toward risk analytics on demand, Northern
Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) successfully implemented its hosted risk solution for
several major clients in 2012, including the International Fund for
Agricultural Development (IFAD).

Hosted Risk Solutions enables direct access to market leading risk engines and
sophisticated analytical tools for institutional investors, regardless of the
time or location. Northern Trust’s solution integrates BarraOne – MSCI’s
integrated platform for multi-asset class investment risk management and
performance attribution – with Northern Trust’s custody, accounting, fund
administration and collateral management platform to deliver a cost efficient
risk solution.

“Our hosted risk solution has been implemented against a backdrop of
heightened market volatility and increasing investment complexity, resulting
in a marked rise in demand for even closer access to meaningful risk
information,” said Ian Castledine, global head of product management for
Investment Risk and Performance Measurement at Northern Trust. “It enables
clients to monitor and analyse risk metrics, perform ad hoc stress and
scenario testing, run optimisation cases and back test potential strategy
changes, all while leveraging our integrated data and technology platform and
expert consultant support.”

The Northern Trust solution enables clients to:

  * access holdings based, forward looking risk analysis underpinned by the
    Barra Integrated Model, a market leading, multi factor risk model
  * gain valuable portfolio insight using total risk metrics and multiple
    Value at Risk methodologies
  * incorporate liability cash flows and utilise a consistent risk methodology
    to model both assets and liabilities
  * access extensive stress testing and custom scenario analysis capabilities
    to understand the impact of different market conditions on assets and
    liabilities

“Northern Trust’s hosted risk solution provided us with the tools and metrics
necessary to implement time critical risk budgets for investment allocation
decisions,” said Natalia Toschi, head of asset liability management at
International Fund for Agricultural Development. “Furthermore, the expertise
provided by Northern Trust’s risk consultants in interpreting data and
providing valuable recommendations as well as training was also critical to
the success of our new investment process.”

Northern Trust’s integrated risk management platform provides end to end
operational support to include data loading, daily position maintenance and
asset modelling alongside secure data storage, a flexible reporting portal and
a global team of experienced investment risk consultants. It can also help
satisfy clients’ increasingly sophisticated risk management needs as well as
help them to fulfil their complex regulatory commitments, such as the Solvency
II requirements for insurance companies in Europe.
