Leveraging FIS technology to Provide Enhanced Reporting and Analytics
for General Partners

Northern Trust (NASDAQ:NTRS) announced today it has developed enhanced
reporting and analytical tools to provide private equity managers with
greater transparency into fund operations, delivering on-demand data and
customized views of portfolio information.

The sophisticated reporting for Northern Trust private equity fund
administration clients was developed in collaboration with financial
technology solutions provider FIS and leverages FIS's Data Exchange
Reporting and Analytics (DX R&A) solution. This capability enables
on-demand reporting to answer investor and investment manager inquiries,
providing general partners with direct access to detailed and
comprehensive information on their schedule of investments, cash flows,
investor capital commitments and balances.

"We have focused heavily on deploying leading technology to drive
increased transparency in private equity investing, and this latest
enhancement is another example of how we continue to raise the bar,"
said Pete Cherecwich, president of Corporate & Institutional Services at
Northern Trust. "By incorporating the advanced FIS solution, we give
clients the data they need to make more informed decisions."

The new technology supports increasing demand from private equity
financial officers for direct and immediate access to their data –
enabling general partners to drill down into their trial balances and
the underlying transactions. Access to intuitive dashboards displaying
performance and risk metrics will soon be available.

"Northern Trust joins a growing number of firms that deploy our Data
Exchange Reporting and Analytics solution to provide a self-service
platform for their clients to view their data, run reports, and analyze
portfolio performance," said Sami Juma, Head of Alternative Solutions,
FIS. "Using our advanced solution, Northern Trust's clients can
transform data into intelligence to improve decision-making, whilst
simultaneously benefiting from an enhanced customer experience."

administration, accounting and data and analytical solutions to more
