Hedge fund administrator Northern Trust has named an executive at Citadel Investment Group's administration business to head a new business unit.
R. Peter Sanchez will serve as CEO of Northern Trust Hedge Fund Services, Northern Trust said. The new division of the firm's global fund services business will offer world-class, scalable technology and dedicated expertise to serve hedge funds and large institutional investors with complex portfolios, including administrative and middle-office services.
