Northern Trust has received the European Private Equity Fund Administrator of the Year award at the 25th annual European Venture Capital Journal awards dinner, held in London on January 28, 2009.
The awards recognize the achievements of 2008 and are presented across 20 industry categories. Winners are selected according to a combination of pitch submissions, the EVCJ editorial team’s research and the results of an online industry voting poll, and are announced at an awards dinner attended by senior private equity and venture capital professionals from across the globe. All profits from the event are donated to Save the Children, which Thomson Reuters has supported for the past 13 years.
"We congratulate Northern Trust on their win and commend their achievements in the European private equity industry during 2008. They have taken on quite a few clients over the year. The group has a 20 year track record and has been through several private equity cycles,” said Amanda Williams Palmer, executive editor at European Venture Capital Journal, in a press release. "EVCJ is a leading European venture capital and private equity magazine, owned by Thomson Reuters, and following the Reuters Thomson merger in 2008 this year’s awards are now bigger than ever," he said.
