Hedge fund administrator Northern Trust has filled out the management team of its newly-launched alternative investments business.
The Chicago-based firm named five people to help lead its Northern Trust Alternatives Group, which combines the firm's hedge fund and private equity portfolio management, product, sales and service teams. Northern Trust set the group up in October and handed it to Robert Morgan, its former private equity chief.
Now, the firm has said that Anthony Zanolla will serve as head of portfolio management, Tony Lissuzzo as director of hedge fund research, Bob DiCarlo as chief administrative officer and Aimee Wight as investor relations consultant. Northern Trust also announced the promotion of Brad Dorchienecz to Morgan's old job of director of private equity.
Two of the appointees are new hires. Lissuzzo joins from Lakeview Investment Management and formerly worked at Man Group's Glenwood Capital. DiCarlo comes over from Aurora Investment Management.
Zanolla has been with Northern Trust for seven years, most recently as a senior portfolio manager. Wight most recently worked at Northern Trust's Wealth Management business, and Dorchienecz was co-founder of the firm's private equity funds of funds group.
