Previously based in Northern Trust’s Melbourne office, Surgeon has relocated to Sydney, where she will be involved in supporting industry, client and consultant relationships in the city.
She continues to report to Madeleine Senior, head of the Australasia region at Northern Trust.
Surgeon has been with Northern Trust since 2005, when she joined the London office. She move to Melbourne in 2007.
Senior said: “We continue to see an increasing demand for our range of innovative institutional-level asset servicing and asset management solutions across Australasia.”
She added: “Sally Surgeon has been instrumental in growing our client base across the region and we are delighted to appoint her to lead our Sydney office where, drawing on her experience, she will focus on continuing to deepen relationships with our clients and the industry and drive momentum for our expanding business.”
Northern Trust established its second Australia office in Sydney with the acquisition of Aviate Global in May last year.
