Northern Trust Ramps Up Private Equity Team

Dec 6 2007 | 1:15pm ET

Raj Vora has joined the private equity team at Northern Trust Global Advisors, the firm’s multi-manager arm.  He will focus on portfolio management, sourcing and due diligence of new investments, and investor relations for the growing fund-of-funds group.  

Prior to joining Northern Trust, Vora was an associate at Wind Point Partners, a middle-market leveraged buyout fund in Chicago where he played a role in all aspects of the investment process. He also served as the head of corporate development for a Wind Point portfolio company.  Before joining Wind Point Partners, he worked in the investment banking division at Goldman Sachs in New York.

“With the strong growth in our private equity fund-of-funds business, it has been important for us to continue to add high quality individuals to the team.” said Robert Morgan, senior vice president and director of private equity at NTGA.  “Raj fit the bill perfectly.  His background in investment banking and direct private equity experience will lend itself well to the diligence and sourcing of investment opportunities for our funds.  Further, his knowledge of the private equity markets and ability to work with institutional clients will be key attributes in continuing to provide strong service to our high net worth and institutional investor base.”

Northern Trust, a multibank holding company based in Chicago, had assets under custody of $4.1 trillion, and assets under investment management of $761.4 billion.
