TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) has appointed Keishi Yamamoto to
lead its asset management business in Japan. Yamamoto replaces Hidehiro
Nakayama who retires later this year as current president and
representative director.

Reporting to John McCareins, managing director, Asia-Pacific at Northern
Trust Asset Management, Yamamoto will manage the continued growth and
evolution of Northern Trust Asset Management’s business in Japan, and
will have responsibility for sales, product development, client service
and operational teams in Tokyo.
