“Particularly after 2008, our clients have become accustomed to strong corporate governance, high levels of transparency and liquidity,” founder Martin Klöck said.

“We were looking for a jurisdiction and a provider that would enhance our ability to meet our clients’ needs and Northern Trust had the experience and product expertise to support these requirements.”
