Northern Trust Unveils Online Self-Directed Accounts

February 8, 2001 ( - Participants in Northern Trust retirement plans can now trade securities online as part of a new self-directed account.

Northern Trust Retirement Consulting Thursday unveiled the Northern Trust Select Retirement Account offered via Northern Trust Retirement Passport.

The self-directed capability comes about because of a partnership with Northern Trust Securities Incorporated (NTSI), a full service brokerage subsidiary of Northern Trust which offers internet-based, Interactive Voice Response, and live agent interactions, Northern Trust executives said.

Participants will be able to place requests through NTSI Service Desk representatives and will have full access to account information and automated transactions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
