Northern Trust Asset Management has completed its acquisition of San Francisco-based Belvedere Advisors LLC, which owns Emotomy®, an open-architecture digital investment advice platform designed for financial professionals.

Emotomy is a custom-branded digital investment advice platform that is intended to help financial advisers build, manage and market their own investment strategies. It enables advisers to use pre-constructed models, build their own models or choose from a broad selection of industry-leading asset servicers including custodians to meet client needs.

The acquisition joins the technology of Belvedere Advisors with Northern Trust Asset Management’s portfolio construction and asset allocation expertise.

With the completion of the acquisition, Belvedere Advisors becomes an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of Chicago-based Northern Trust Investments Inc., Northern Trust Asset Management’s primary SEC-registered investment adviser.
