CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Northern Trust (NTRS) has developed a reporting solution to provide a consolidated view of holdings for institutional investors and sovereign wealth funds that have accounts with multiple custodians, allowing clients to receive intra-day reporting that integrates all assets.
Northern Trusts Integro" solution provides an aggregated view of holdings and transactions from multiple sources.

Our Integro"solution addresses this challenge, making it easier for clients to access their aggregated investment portfolio data in support of their decision-making needs.
Northern Trust takes in intra-day transaction information from investment managers and applies a variety of business rules to normalize the investment information related to classifications, pricing and valuation methodologies, creating the information clients need in today's fast-paced investment environment.
Specifically, Integro" provides:
- Aggregate account transactions and holdings across multiple custodians;
- Normalized information aggregated across multiple investment managers, custodians, asset classes;
- Value added services dependent upon consistent information, such as market risk analytics, performance measurement and post trade compliance solutions.
"Already having two clients live on this solution, we are responding to a challenging client need for consistent, timely and accurate information in a diversified service provider environment," said Jeff Potter, product manager in Northern Trusts Global Product and Strategy group. Integro" serves clients in North America and Europe and will be made available globally over time.
