FORTUNE Names BNY Mellon One of the World’s Most Admired Companies

FEBRUARY 2, 2022

BNY Mellon has been named one of the most admired companies in the world, according to a study published in FORTUNE magazine. This is the 25th time BNY Mellon has been included on the list since it originated in 1997 and the 20th time as part of the Superregional Banks industry.


The annual “World’s Most Admired Companies” report released today surveys top executives and directors from eligible companies, along with financial analysts, to identify the companies that enjoy the strongest reputations within their industries and across industries.


Companies are evaluated based on nine attributes of reputation to determine the industry rankings.


“BNY Mellon is proud to once again be recognized among the World’s Most Admired Companies,” said Jolen Anderson, Global Head of Human Resources. “This honor is down to the dedication and drive of our more than 48,000 global team members and reflects the culture evolution of our entire organization.”


Survey Methodology

FORTUNE collaborates with partner Korn Ferry on this corporate reputation survey, which evaluates approximately 1,500 companies, including the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue and non-U.S. companies in the FORTUNE Global 500® database with revenues of $10 billion or more.  Korn Ferry surveys 640 companies from 28 counties to select the largest for each international and U.S. industry. To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry asks executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria:

  1. Ability to attract and retain talented people
  2. Quality of management
  3. Social responsibility to the community and the environment
  4. Innovativeness
  5. Quality of products or services
  6. Wise use of corporate assets
  7. Financial soundness
  8. Long-term investment value
  9. Effectiveness in doing business globally

A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
