Northern Trust hires chief investment strategist

The $1.1 trillion global fund manager appointed a new chief investment strategist for three regions including Asia-Pacific.

Wouter Sturkenboom will be responsible for designing, implementing and communicating global investment strategy for the firm's investors, across Europe, Middle East Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific region.

Sturkenboom will report to Northern Trust's chief investment strategist Jim McDonald.

"With Wouter's deep capital market expertise, extensive analytical experience and comprehensive understanding of global markets, we are confident he will help us deliver distinctive insights that will resonate with investors worldwide," McDonald said.

In his most recent role, Sturkenboom was a senior investment strategist at Russell Investments for six years, based in London and then New York.

"In that capacity he was directly responsible for the house view on EMEA including economic and market analysis and worked closely with the multi-asset teams to help them with their asset allocation decisions," Northern Trust said.

Prior, he spent six years as a senior investment strategist at Amsterdam-based Kempen Capital Management.

His appointment follows that of Marie Dzanis, who was named the head of Northern Trust Asset Management's business for EMEA in July 2018.
