In line with the company’s philanthropic strategy, Northern Trust has held its second Charity Trading Day, where employees around the world are taking part to benefit four global charities.

As part of Achieving Greater Together, Northern Trust’s signature month, a total of $700,000 will be donated to charities: Global Red Cross and Red Crescent Network, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), War Child and World Central Kitchen.

In the coming year, Northern Trust’s employees and customers will also donate thousands of volunteer hours to support a number of the charity’s projects around the globe. The global effort, led by Northern Trust Asset Servicing, aligns with the company’s long-term community investment strategy to support those who have been marginalized with more opportunities to achieve long-term financial success.

“Our first Charity Trade Day of 2022 benefited the global housing non-profit Habitat for Humanity International, where our employees also donated many volunteer hours,” said Pete Cherecwich, president of Northern Trust Asset Servicing. “This year, we’re excited to make an even broader impact in our local community by supporting charities that collectively align with all four pillars of Northern Trust’s philanthropic focus: accessible healthcare, affordable housing, educational excellence and food security.”

Charity Trading Day is a cornerstone of the Asset Servicing business unit’s support of Northern Trust’s philanthropic strategy. The day involved hundreds of Asset Servicing staff, from trading and operations, to client services and compliance, and followed the sun across Capital Markets trading desks starting in Sydney and on to Singapore, London and Chicago.

“The extraordinary support of our clients and trading partners has been invaluable in helping us spread awareness of these deserving causes,” said Guy Gibson, global head of Northern Trust Capital Markets, Banking & Treasury Services. “We are also grateful to our employees who volunteered during Achieving Greater Together month to further support their missions.”

Following October’s service, employees will also have the opportunity to engage with customers and volunteer for charities throughout 2024, in line with Northern Trust’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work.
