Our Story

Started by Alexander Hamilton in 1784, BNY Mellon is one of the longest-lasting financial institutions in the world. We have endured, innovated and prospered through every economic event and market move over the past 230 years.

In Latin America, BNY Mellon has been conducting business for over 100 years. With representative offices in Mexico, Chile and Argentina, as well as significant local operations and a baking license in Brazil, we offer a full range of financial services to the Latin market.

Our story in Brazil actually begins in 1980, when The Bank of New York opened a regional office in São Paulo. Some years later, Mellon Financial Corporation would also open an office in Rio de Janeiro. In 2007, these two legendary institutions merged to create the world's largest securities servicing provider and a top asset management firm globally, making us a winning team as one BNY Mellon.
