Alex Matturri was named director of Northern Trust Global Investments' global equity index business, said Richard Jurek, spokesman. Also, Steve Wetter and Rodney Fernandez were named co-leaders of the non-U.S. equity index team, and Tracy Rowoholt was named portfolio manager for the domestic equity index team. All three were members of the firm's quant team; no one was replaced.
The moves followed the resignations in late July of James Creighton, head of the global equity index team; Patrick Cannon, team leader for U.S. equities; and Peter Kuntz, team leader for non-U.S. equities. None of the three could be reached by press time for further information.
