Invested in Brazil

Our story in Brazil 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.
