Northern Trust makes leadership appointments in Global Family Office & Investment Practice Group


Northern Trust has made two senior appointments in its Global Family Office & Investment Practices (GFO) group across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Belinda Aspinall has been named head of GFO for the region, succeeding Lesley Hodgson who takes up the newly created role of wealth strategist and director of GFO for the Middle East.
In her new role, Aspinall, who was most recently head of Northern Trust’s Guernsey office, will be responsible for leading the region’s growing GFO business, overseeing client service and business development for Northern Trust’s sophisticated family office client base. Based in London, Aspinall will have a key role in continuing to drive the growth and expansion of Northern Trust’s GFO services across the region.
Aspinall has held a number of leadership positions since joining Northern Trust in 2005, and during her close to 30 year career in financial services has worked in Stockholm, Luxembourg, London and Guernsey.
Hodgson joined Northern Trust in 1995 and has extensive experience helping families establish efficiency, governance and succession planning within family businesses, property, art and landed estates. In her new role, Hodgson has chosen to bring her experience to support highly-sophisticated families and their advisors across the Middle East in managing family wealth through Northern Trust’s sophisticated solutions.
“We are pleased to announce these appointments underlining our continued commitment to our growing business across the region,” says Dave Fox, president, Northern Trust GFO. “Lesley’s strong foundation in supporting global families will be valuable as we increasingly see growth in our business in the Middle East region. Belinda’s experience, working across our global business and first-hand knowledge of off-shore jurisdictions will ensure we remain best-placed to continue to support the needs of our highly-sophisticated family office clients.”
