Northern Trust, Deutsche Bank In Custodian-Prime Broker Agreement

Aug 11 2010 | 9:13am ET

Northern Trust has entered into an alliance with Deutsche Bank that will give the firm’s hedge fund clients access to Deutsche Bank’s prime brokerage while keeping their assets safely segregated.

Northern Trust’s prime custody clients will now have two options for the securities finance needs: The firm struck a similar deal with Merlin Securities last year.

Deutsche Bank last year launched a platform that allows clients to segregate their assets and keep them with a custodian. Many other prominent prime brokers have done likewise, seeking to allay investor fears following the impounding of prime brokerage assets after the collapse of Lehman Brothers. A British judge has ruled that Lehman failed to properly segregate client assets.
