Peter Sanchez
Head of Northern Trust Alternative Fund and Omnium Business Services (NTAFOBS) at Northern Trust


Peter is an Executive Vice President at the Northern Trust Company and Head of Northern Trust Alternative Fund and Omnium Business Services (NTAFOBS), providing a broad array of integrated middle and back office administration solutions to the world’s most sophisticated global alternative fund managers and institutional investors. Peter has led the business since 2011 and has overseen significant growth as the business has more than tripled in size since the acquisition, to $400 billion in assets under administration and a staff of 1,300. Recently, Peter has been leading the full insourcing of Omnium technology and developers, reinforcing the commitment of NTAFOBS to the alternatives market and positioning the business for continued success.

Prior to its acquisition by Northern Trust, Peter served as Omnium’s Global Head of Business Development and Client Service, responsible for all new business sales and client relationships.

With over 20 years of industry experience, Peter has held various executive and management positions in business development, client service and operations, including as CEO of OpHedge Investment Services, another hedge fund administration company. Leading the firm through the financial crisis of ’08, he created enterprise value and sold the company and its assets at nearly eight times its initial value – improving incremental margins by 100% through increased revenues, cost reduction, process efficiencies and increased scale.

Peter also served as the Global Head of Operations and Prime Brokerage for Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Capital Markets, where he led a $200 million integration initiative, the Bank’s largest, of all Capital Markets Operations across four separate broker dealers, three continents and 1700 operations professionals. Prior to RBC, Peter held the position of Global Head of Operations for Greenwich NatWest. He began his career at Salomon Brothers, where he held several positions in operations management.

Peter received a BA degree in Economics from Princeton University.
