R Squared selects Northern Trust for investment operations outsourcing

Asset manager R Squared Capital Management has appointed Northern Trust to provide investment operations outsourcing in support of its middle office.

Northern Trust will provide a full complement of investment operations solutions, including trade matching, data management, portfolio accounting, client reporting, reconciliations, as well as risk and performance services.
“As a start-up company, we are especially concerned about superb execution for our clients,” says Rudolph-Riad Younes (pictured), chief executive officer and chief investment officer of R Squared Capital Management. “Northern Trust brings a strong global presence, a stellar reputation for client service and streamlined operations, which will help us to grow our business and capture cost efficiencies.”
R Squared Capital Management began operations in 2013 and launched its first mutual fund in December 2013. The firm’s management team has more than 20 years of experience in the international equity space.
“We are excited about our new partnership with R Squared,” says Dan Houlihan, head of global fund services in North America for Northern Trust. “The integrated nature of our operations platform allows our clients to simplify their business and focus on the essentials. Reduced administrative burdens and access to accurate data are increasingly important as economic volatility grows and regulatory challenges continue to mount.”
